Contribution to society

We strive to make the biggest possible difference to medicines and patients around the world.



We all have a role to play in delivering our sustainability ambition and our employee engagement survey results show that our employees also expect us to lead in working on climate change and health. Some of our key initiatives are inspired and driven by employee feedback and activism, and our employees are working to embed sustainability in everything we do. In this way sustainability goes beyond the goals and becomes part of our DNA.
