AS A HEALTH CARE COMPANY

We are not just focused on bringing transformative medicines to patients facing serious diseases, we are also concerned with the health of our employees, our communities and our planet. We are actively working to reduce our environmental footprint through a wide variety of programs that encompass the thoughtful construction of manufacturing plants and office buildings, the packaging of products and the ecology of the sites where we work. We are guided by our Sustainability Goals, measuring our progress and renewing these every five years. The goals help us strengthen our fundamental business and support our position as a sustainability leader.

Our colleagues are encouraged to help improve the company and their personal environmental impact through events such as Earth Day celebrations or by taking part in gardening, tree planting and beach or park clean-up in their communities.
