With a view to enabling the collection of reliable and consistent data on ANGLE’s performance, an ANGLE team has been assembled with contributors from across functions (e.g. finance, human resources, R&D, manufacturing, clinical laboratories) and across each of ANGLE’s geographic locations.

The team is now in the process of identifying the relevant standards and frameworks and building its initial database of key metrics and data. Once complete, the Company will be in a position to set targets for future performance and develop the required internal policies and procedures to capture the necessary data and move towards meeting those targets.

ANGLE’s sustainability reporting will evolve as this work progresses.
