We want to be valued as a source of great medicines and trusted as a company that delivers business success sustainably

Healthy Heart Africa

Healthy Heart Africa aims to support local health systems by increasing awareness of the symptoms and risks of hypertension and by offering education, screening, reduced-cost treatment and control.

Sustainable workplace

In 2016, our UK-based R&D Centre and Corporate HQ building will relocate to a purpose-built facility on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. We took the decision early on to work with our partners to deliver a sustainable design for the facility.

Young Health Programme

AstraZeneca’s Young Health Programme has a unique focus on young people and the prevention of the most common non-communicable diseases (NCDs).

Our areas of focus

Our two areas of special focus have been identified where we believe we have the capability to implement activities that accelerate our business strategy while delivering wider benefits to society and the environment.


Good governance is crucial to ensuring we are well managed, can deliver our strategic priorities and meet stakeholder expectations.

In addition to our special focus areas, our sustainable business commitments include:

Our Code of Conduct and policies

Our Code of Conduct describes the standards we require and provides high level guidance on how these are to be translated into consistent actions worldwide. The Code is supported by our global policies.
