We recognize that a company with global scale and unique capabilities has the opportunity to use those resources for social good.
We dedicate time and resources to address the health needs of the underserved, build long-term community strength and protect the environment.
Addressing the Health Needs of the Underserved
Addressing the health needs of the underserved requires resources and
specialized capabilities. We give our medicines, expertise and funding
to help meet those needs. Our teams work with leading nonprofits to
address neglected tropical diseases, malaria and tuberculosis, to
build health system capability and provide access to essential
medicine and care.
Supporting Long-Term Community Strength
We are invested in the economic health of the communities where we
operate. We provide business opportunities for local suppliers,
encourage employee volunteerism and giving and provide philanthropic
support. Our philanthropy focuses on strengthening education systems
and programs, with particular emphasis on science, technology,
engineering and math.
Good health requires a healthy environment. We hold ourselves
accountable for running our business sustainably. We have continued to
make progress on our absolute environmental sustainability targets,
from reducing carbon emissions and water consumption to striving for
zero waste to landfill. We expect our suppliers to join us in our
efforts to protect the environment.
