Our approach to being a responsible company

Read more

We know that we need to get ahead of disease in the right way. This means being conscious of how we do things and the impact we have on the world around us - however big or small - while we strive to maximise the impact of the products we provide.

Central to our purpose is a defining measure of delivering health impact at scale. Our plan shows that we can positively impact the health of 2.5 billion people worldwide over the next 10 years. Acting as a responsible business by considering our social, environmental and governance therefore supports sustainable performance and long-term growth; builds trust with all our stakeholders; reduces risk to our operations and enables delivery of positive social impact.

What we’re doing to be responsible

Our six areas of focus

We've identified six areas of responsible business that matter most to us: pricing and access; global health and health security; diversity, equity and inclusion; environmental sustainability; product governance and ethical standards.

Pricing and access
We are making our products affordable and available to more people around the world through responsible pricing, strategic access programmes and partnerships.
Global health and health security
We are committed to using our science, our partnerships, and the knowledge we’ve gained from addressing the world’s biggest health challenges to improve health globally.
Diversity, equity and inclusion
Our work supports the health of all kinds of people. To meet our diverse patients' needs better, we need diversity in our clinical trials and to support our own people to thrive as part of an inclusive team.
Environmental sustainability
We are working towards a net zero impact on climate and a net positive impact on nature by 2030, across our full value chain.
Product governance
Ensuring the quality, safety and reliable supply of our products is critical to our purpose of uniting science, talent and technology to get ahead of disease together.
Ethical standards
Our culture guides our people to do the right thing and act on any concerns they have.
