What does the thalidomide tragedy mean for the family-owned company Grünenthal?

The thalidomide tragedy is now, and always will be, part of Grünenthal's company history. Grünenthal and its family shareholders greatly regret the consequences of the thalidomide tragedy. It is a matter of moral importance to Grünenthal to be actively involved in charitable efforts to improve the situation of thalidomide-affected people on a sustainable basis. We seek to work together with those affected by thalidomide to devise projects for the provision of specific needs-based support.
