Being a responsible business means operating in a way that reflects our values, treating our stakeholders with respect and connecting our business decisions to society’s healthcare needs.
We believe by being ethical and responsible in everything we do we can grow a sustainable and valuable business not only for our shareholders but for consumers and patients around the world.
Our business makes a valuable contribution to society. However, we know that the research and development, manufacture and sale of our medicines, vaccines and consumer products can raises ethical issues. We aim to be open and transparent about how we tackle these issues. We seek to minimise the negative impacts and maximise the benefits of our business.
