Legend Biotech Announces Publication of Inaugural Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Report

Legend Biotech Corporation (NASDAQ: LEGN) (Legend Biotech), a global leader in cell therapy, today released its inaugural Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) report. The inaugural report provides an overview of Legend Biotech’s ESG program and reporting in alignment with the Sustainable Accounting Standards Board (“SASB”) Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical sector standards, the Company’s ESG data collection and disclosure roadmap, and future growth areas in its ESG journey.

“At Legend Biotech, we are united by our mission to deliver life-saving treatments to patients with intractable and incurable diseases. As one of the largest global cell therapy research and development teams in the industry, sustainable business practices are integral to helping us achieve this goal,” said Ying Huang, Chief Executive Officer of Legend Biotech. “We are proud to share our inaugural ESG report, highlighting our commitment to patients, employees, and our communities. This report marks a foundational step in our ESG journey, which we look forward to building upon in the years ahead.”

Key pillars of Legend’s ESG program include:

  • Caring for Patients, Delivering Transformative Innovations

    With more than $1 billion invested in R&D since its inception and ongoing collaborations with leading academic institutions, major hospitals, and industry leaders, Legend Biotech’s dedication to cutting-edge and ethical R&D fuels its pursuit of groundbreaking innovations. The Company prioritizes patient access and well-being throughout the treatment journey by engaging with patient advocacy organizations, investing in commercial presence and production capacity to ensure a strong supply chain, and utilizing a comprehensive patient support program.
  • Engaging with Employees and Communities

    The Company’s successes would not be possible without the dedication of a talented and passionate workforce. Legend Biotech is proud to report that, based on its most recent annual employee engagement survey, 85% of employees feel their work is meaningful. The Company cultivates a workplace where diverse backgrounds and ideas drive innovation and focuses on providing employees with a meaningful career path through dedicated talent retention, professional development, and community engagement opportunities.
  • Fostering Operational Efficiency and Integrity

    Legend Biotech prioritizes operational excellence, employee well-being, and resource optimization through robust environmental, health, and safety (EHS) management. The Company’s new chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) facility in Ghent, Belgium, is equipped with state-of-the-art ecological efficiency features, and it will employ the same high safety standards observed at its three U.S. sites, including frequent inspections, incident and emissions tracking, and comprehensive training. To promote accountability to patients, shareholders, and the broader business, Legend Biotech has implemented strong corporate governance practices and a multi-faceted, risk-based cybersecurity and data privacy program aligned with business objectives.
