Introduction and objectives of work

Bureau Veritas has been engaged by AstraZeneca plc (AstraZeneca) to provide assurance over Responsible Business (RB) activities reported in its 2013 Annual Report and form 20-F (the Report). The objectives of our work are to inform AstraZeneca’s stakeholders whether the reported RB information is an accurate, reliable and objective account of AstraZeneca’s RB impacts and activities, and to provide an independent opinion on those activities. The Report has been prepared by AstraZeneca’s management, who are responsible for the collection and presentation of information.
