Responsibility is
the Foundation of
Our Work

Corporate Responsibility

Corporate responsibility is a core part of our work and extends beyond our commitment to the development of medicines. We strive to have a positive impact on our employees, members of our communities, our local environment and society at large. We support research, education and patient advocacy programs with high potential to benefit people affected by serious diseases in our therapeutic areas of focus. We also work to improve the communities in which we live and work through employee volunteerism and corporate giving.

Our Corporate Responsibility Principles

Our company and culture are based on strong leadership and corporate governance.
These principles provide an important foundation to help us work with a responsibility mindset as we strive to make a real impact for patients and communities.

Responsibility reports

Patient Advocacy & Engagement

We work closely with patients, caregivers and advocates, which helps us better understand their perspectives and goals as we seek to advance patient-centered drug development. We support efforts to raise awareness of patient needs, increase disease state awareness and education and improve access to medicines.

I have been in recovery for more than 20 years. The last five years have been some of the toughest for people living with addiction and their families. We need to work together as a society to give everyone a chance to recover.
