A Letter from Daniel J. Abdun-Nabi

This Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report reveals a slice of who we are as a company and how our CSR efforts contribute to our vision—Protecting and Enhancing 50 million lives by 2025. This bold aspiration focuses on giving millions of individuals, world-wide, the opportunity to experience the fullness of life.

Our CSR mission—to build a healthier and safer world—is supported by four goals that guide our activities: Advancing Global Health, Protecting Those That Protect Us, Educating Tomorrow’s Scientific Leaders, and Improving Our Communities. Since 2013, our philanthropic eGIVE program has worked to advance these goals, building strong relationships in our communities and engaging employees in giving back.

At the corporate level, we partner with aligned non-profit organizations to help them meet their goals. This includes organizations such as Rivers of Recovery, which helps combat veterans and MdBio Foundation to promote STEM education in Maryland public schools. In regions where we operate, we have activated employee-led eGIVE teams to distribute donations to community non-profits and to organize volunteer activities.

Through eGIVE, our employees have volunteered more than 5,000 hours, working tirelessly to engage with and support their communities. In response to such commitment and enthusiasm, we implemented a Dollars for Doers program, enabling our top employee volunteers to direct monetary awards to their favorite charities.

This report highlights some of those stories and partnerships that reflect our unwavering commitment to build a healthier and safer world.

Daniel J. Abdun-Nabi, President and CEO, Emergent BioSolutions

Advancing Global Health

“Three years ago, I was sitting on the couch and thinking, I’m single, sitting around on the weekend, I should do something to help the world. I went on the Big Brothers, Big Sisters website and filled out an application. My parents both did it years ago.”

Maureen Schmieder  |  Quality Assurance Analyst  |  Lansing

Maureen Schmieder has volunteered more than 100 hours this year acting as a big sister, mentor, and friend to a 14-year-old girl she was paired with three years ago through Big Brothers, Big Sisters in Lansing, Michigan.

“They take at-risk kids, pair them up with a man if it’s a boy, a woman if it’s a girl, to be a mentor. We do fun things and maybe keep their minds off bad things that might be going on at home. There are different levels of need, some are worse off than others.”

The two have done simple activities close to home and bigger adventures farther afield, such as an all-day trip to an amusement park in Muskegon. “It’s fun. I get to be a kid for a while,” Maureen says. “She had never been to a musical before, so I took her to see Wicked. She freaked out she was so excited. She never would have had that opportunity otherwise.”

Maureen likes to get her “little sister” outside, doing something active, such as basketball or volleyball. Otherwise, the young teen stays at home with her single mother, who cannot leave her aging grandmother alone.

The biggest issue she has helped her little sister with is how to deal with bullies. “She takes on bullies. She steps in and then has to fight them. I’ve had to discuss that with her. You can’t use physical violence. I talk to her about what you can do instead: find a teacher, go to the office.”

Maureen shares her love of science with her Little Sister by taking her to science fairs and science museums. They have also volunteered together at homeless shelters. And they have attended 75% of Michigan State’s Women’s Basketball games this year.

Maureen has donated her $1,000 Dollars for Doers award to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Children’s Hospital Foundation (CHF)  |  Winnipeg

For nearly 20 years, we have partnered with CHF to fund pediatric research, equipment and programs. Favorites among these include the Foundation’s annual Teddy Bear’s Picnic where employee volunteers teach children ways to stay healthy, and our Giving Tuesday Toy Drive and Campaign, donating 60 toys for kids hospitalized over the holiday and breast pumps for new mothers with premature babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Funding the JHU Fellowship Program  |  Corporate

Part of advancing global health is helping educate the scientists and public health leaders of the future. That’s why we have committed to funding several fellowships for promising graduate students at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University.

Emergent has a long-standing relationship with BSPH, particularly with the Department of Medical Microbiology and Immunology (MMI) faculty, which has impressed us with its work to better understand globally important diseases such as malaria, HIV and TB, and develop approaches to prevent these scourges.

As a result, we created the Emergent Public Health Fellowship Program to help promising graduate students continue their research, battling against diseases of global significance. We are proud of our relationship with one of the premier medical and academic institutions in the world.

Established in 2012, the Fellowship makes awards to both Masters and PhD students. Each year, a new Masters of Public Health student is selected to receive a $5,000 annual award while a single PhD student is selected to receive an annual award for a one-to-three-year period. The fellowship can be used to offset tuition and fees and for educational expenses, such as travel to scientific conferences.

Protecting Those That Protect Us

“I am from the south, my family had to evacuate during Katrina. Their homes were destroyed. I think about those things a lot. If something happens, I want to help the first responders. I want to make a difference.”

Pearl Parker  |  Executive Administrative Assistant  |  Gaithersburg

Pearl Parker, one of four top participants in Emergent’s Dollars for Doers Program, volunteered more than 97 hours this past year as a Go-Team Responder with the Montgomery County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) as well as the American Red Cross. “I’m all preparedness focused,” she says, “so I identify organizations that serve that purpose.”

As a CERT volunteer, she is trained to help first responders with search and rescue during storms and fires, and helps evacuate seniors. She educates the community about emergency response through programs such as Storm Camps that teach kids and their parents preparedness skills such as CPR and first aid. And she participates in fire fighter training exercises by playing roles in mock disasters.

As a Red Cross Disaster Action Team volunteer, she responds to calls to assist county residents displaced by house fires, and provides immediate financial relief for lodging, clothing, food and medicine.

Pearl donated her $1,000 Dollars for Doers award to the Montgomery County, Maryland Alumni chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., an African American women’s public service organization that collaborates with Red Cross emergency response programs.

“I really count myself fortunate to work at Emergent,” she says, “because their mission lines up with who I am and what I believe. The whole concept of service is to help your neighbor.”

USO Metropolitan Washington  |  Corporate & Gaithersburg

Since 2013, Emergent has been a sponsor and supporter of USO projects and programs for active military and their families at Ft. Meade, the largest U.S. military base. A favorite of employees is Operation Back to School, a one-day event to help get military kids school-ready with fun learning activities and a backpack stuffed with new school supplies.

Improving on-base facilities is a priority for the USO. Emergent has helped sponsor the construction of a new USO recreation center and, most recently, a new family center at the Military Entrance Process Station where all enlistees are processed prior to induction into the armed services.

Rivers of Recovery  |  Corporate

“I know it sounds simple, but this program probably saved my life. It allowed me to feel more human for four days and gave me a ray of hope for the future. I don’t think you can even put a price on it.”
—A Rivers of Recovery participant

There’s something about being in a drift boat on a river, casting flies and landing trout that can transform lives. That’s the simple but powerful idea behind Rivers of Recovery, a unique program that specializes in the rehabilitation of combat veterans suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. The program combines outdoor recreational activities with instruction on the self-treatment of symptoms.

Emergent supports Rivers of Recovery financially and enables employees to be trip volunteers, supporting and mentoring participating veterans and helping them live a life no longer restricted by psychological or physical disabilities.

IAFCF  |  Corporate

Safer communities start with having well-trained first responders. Each year, we provide the International Association of Fire Chiefs Foundation (IAFCF) funding for 10 scholarships for first responders and safety officers to attend the International Hazardous Materials Response Team Conference, the focus of which it to provide immediate, practical and valuable training designed to ensure they can successfully meet the demands of hazmat response in today’s challenging environment.

Educating Tomorrow’s Scientific Leaders

“Scouting gets youth off electronics, off TV, and outside doing things and getting skills like first aid and how to navigate without a cell phone. Life skills give youth an opportunity to develop as leaders and contribute to the community as a whole.”

Matt Cromie  |  Senior Manager, Clinical Research Science  |  Winnipeg

Matt Cromie volunteered more than 80 hours this year working as a Scouts Canada leader in Winnipeg helping young adults gain skills outside of routine schooling. Through Scouts, Matt helps young men and women safely experience outdoor activities such as canoeing, camping, skiing, and hiking, adventures they might not get in a big city.

An Eagle Scout himself, Matt says he “took away a lot from Scouts and this is a way to give back.” He spent six years as a scout when he was young and has been a Scout leader a total of 12 years, first for his son’s troop in New Jersey and now in Winnipeg. The biggest difference he has found between Boy Scouts of America and Scouts Canada is that the Canadian groups are co-ed. “They have a very matter-of-fact approach that teaches respect,” he says.

Matt shares his love of science with his scouts. “I am a scientist…when you think about being outdoors—geography, environment, climate, orienteering—all these things do have scientific pieces to them. I try to teach scouts skills that are helpful outdoors. To do so, I take a scientific approach. Some of the older kids have an interest in science or engineering, and I’ve had interesting discussions with them about what we do in drug development. I try to explain it in a way that’s simple to understand: We are looking at medicines that may be used to treat diseases or disorders that present real risk of doing harm. We’re looking at removing that harm. It’s exciting when kids say, ‘Oh, wow, that’s pretty cool.’”

The scientist chose to donate half of his $1,000 Dollars for Doers award to Oak Table Harvest, a homeless shelter in Winnipeg where his Scouts volunteer, and the other half to Habitat for Humanity, where he has volunteered building houses with a team from Emergent.

“Volunteering is absolutely fulfilling,” he says. “It’s about giving back and paying forward. I had opportunities as a youth and now I can give youth opportunities.”

MdBio Foundation  |  Maryland

Our philanthropic partnership with MdBio Foundation provides innovative, experiential STEM education opportunities for Maryland students. Our support includes a $25,000 annual gift, sponsoring a mobile lab that travels to every school district in Maryland, engaging employee-volunteers for MdBio events and expos, and field trips where students can interact with Emergent scientists.

“We LOVE working with the Emergent team, you always bring your “A” game. You guys are awesome!!”
—Brian Gaines, MdBio Foundation CEO

Lansing Promise  |  Lansing

Since 2011, we have partnered with the Lansing Promise scholarship program. The Promise offers tuition assistance for post-secondary education to all eligible high school graduates within the Lansing School District boundaries. With the support of organizations like Emergent, the program has enabled 647 scholars to continue their education beyond high school, and has invested more than $1,000,000 in Lansing students to date.

“Lansing is taking seriously the call of investing in our kids, strengthening our community, keeping our promise, and together building our future. Emergent BioSolutions has been at the forefront of it all, leading by example at every turn.”
—Justin Sheehan, Lansing Promise Executive Director

Public High Schools  |  Winnipeg

2016 kicked off our inaugural Emergent BioSolutions High School Scholarship program, which provides financial support to 40 graduating students from Winnipeg public high schools. Students are chosen based on overall achievement, high achievement in the science curriculum, commitment to pursue a post-secondary education in the life sciences and outstanding engagement to improve the local community.

Improving Communities

“The Maryland Food Bank is important. It touches veterans that are homeless. My dad is a Vietnam veteran, so that really pulls at my heart strings. No one should have to scrounge for food. Food should be a God-given right. People just throw away food. I like making a difference. The Food Bank provides millions of meals.”

Jennifer Spooner  (center)  |  Microbiologist  |  Baltimore

Jennifer Spooner believes that “it’s really important to give back,” which is why she volunteered more than 88 hours this year at the Maryland Food Bank and the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County. “Some people need help and might not ask. And I’m in a place where I can help. If you can give back, you should give back.”

Jennifer sorts and organizes boxes of donations for the Food Bank, a distribution site for community outreach programs in Maryland. Donations come from churches, individuals, warehouses, grocery stores, and food drives. “The donations come in all disorganized,” she says. “You’ll have lotion and green beans and diapers all together in one box. You have to re-organize them so that they can be distributed.”

The microbiologist also helps at the Family Crisis Center, which helps provide safety for women and families who have suffered abuse or neglect. Along with a team of Emergent volunteers, she painted a carnival mural at the Center to make it more cheerful for traumatized kids.

“It’s awesome that Emergent gives us hours to do something for the community. And it’s fun. I have to contribute, I can’t just stand there.”

Jennifer donated her $1,000 Dollars for Doers award to BARCS, Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter, a non-profit animal rescue organization that takes in homeless, neglected and unwanted animals in Baltimore City and promotes responsible pet ownership.

The Family Crisis Center (FCC)  |  Baltimore

The FCC provides essential and life-saving services to family members experiencing conflict and family violence and offers immediate and long-term comprehensive services to both victims and perpetrators of family violence. Since 2011, FCC has been a favorite among our Baltimore–area employees, helping them to continue their good work through financial contributions and supporting special events, including an Angel Tree and pizza party with Santa, supplying treats for a Fourth of July gathering, donating new mattresses, and painting murals in the FCC’s hallways.

Caring for Families in Crisis

“Our mantra says, “When Someone Somewhere Cares, Someone Somewhere Survives.” Emergent and its employees care and that has changed the lives of the families at our safe shelter.”
—Rebecca Foster, Shelter Director, Family Crisis Center

Siloam Mission  |  Winnipeg

Siloam Mission has provided meals, clothing and services to Winnipeg’s poor and homeless since 1987. Operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, providing shelter, meals, clothing, health services, transition services, employment training, supportive housing and recreational activities, Siloam Mission is truly a full service organization for those in need. We partner with the Mission, providing financial support and volunteers for their programs, including the annual Christmas Backpack program, sorting donations, serving meals, raising funds and providing urgently needed items. In 2016, we funded new lighting for transitional housing, improving safety and security, and new optometry room equipment.

Focusing on Corporate Citizenship

Maintaining High Ethical Standards In Everything We Do

Environment

As part of our mission to protect and enhance life, we are committed to conducting our business operations in a safe and sustainable manner and working in our communities to improve the environment for all. Having completed a carbon footprint assessment of our global operations, we are seeking additional ways to reduce our impact on the environment for current and future generations. For example, at Emergent’s 22-acre campus in Lansing, Michigan, an Energy Management Program was developed to reduce utility usage and cost by 2% to 5% year-over-year. Begun in 2014, the initiative had reduced utility use by 10.30% by year-end 2016.

Governance

Emergent is strongly committed to the highest standards of ethical conduct and corporate governance. These standards are consistent with our corporate culture.

Compliance

At Emergent we have an unwavering commitment to ethics and integrity. Ensuring that our company remains in compliance with our Code of Conduct is an essential component of that commitment.

Fostering a Dynamic Workplace

As a global company, our goal is to have One Emergent culture across our many sites. We seek to create and maintain a positive, productive culture that is built on our five Core Values of Respect, Commitment, Empowerment, Communication and Innovation.

Becoming One Emergent requires that every employee at every level of the company actively incorporates these Core Values into their work-life. Doing that also focuses our shared energy and takes us closer to attaining our vision of protecting and enhancing 50 million lives by 2025.

Our culture is also one that encourages community involvement: in 2016, we recorded approximately 5,000 employee volunteer hours with 44% of our 1,200 employees giving back to their communities.
