Our sustainability ambition

To use our capabilities to make the most meaningful impact where society needs it - health



At AstraZeneca we’re united by our desire to push the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines.

We know it’s how we will continue to transform the lives of millions of patients around the world while delivering value to our employees, our communities, and the environment. We believe there is a strong connection between the health of our business, our patients, our workforce, and the planet and each of these impact one another.

Access to Healthcare. As a global company, we seek to leverage our reach, scale and expertise to effect real change in
