We are a global, science-led biopharmaceutical business and our innovative medicines are used by millions of patients worldwide.
Our purpose and values
Our purpose and values help explain why we exist, what we hope to accomplish, the behaviours we value, how we will achieve our goals, and the promise of our brand to our stakeholders.
We push the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines.
Our purpose underpins everything we do. It gives us a reason to come to work every day. It reminds us why we exist as a company. It helps us deliver benefits to patients and create value for shareholders. It also sets the context for our employees’ activities and the roles of our teams, partners and other collaborators.
We follow the science. We put patients first. We play to win. We do the right thing. We are entrepreneurial.
Our values determine how we work together and the behaviours that are integral to our drive for success. Our values guide our decision making, define our beliefs and foster a strong AstraZeneca culture.
