U.N. Sustainable Development Goals

We joined other industry-leading companies across the globe in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) so we can work together to discover ways to make positive contributions to society. As we expand our business and operations, we strive to further support global health and sustainable development. And by aligning our existing sustainability and social practices within the UNGC and the UN SDGs, we better articulate our commitment to our patients, local communities, society and the planet.

Here is what we are doing to address global challenges:


Good Health and Well-Being

We expand access to innovative therapeutics that improve human health worldwide. We aim to help end the epidemics of AIDS and hepatitis, and combat other communicable diseases.


Quality Education

We educate and train healthcare providers on advanced therapies, especially in low-income and developing regions.


Gender Equality

We cultivate an inclusive and diverse workforce that celebrates differences in race, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and thinking style.

Clean Water and Sanitation

We protect water-dependent ecosystems by using natural bioswales, rainwater capture systems and water conservation measures.


Affordable and Clean Energy

We generate and purchase renewable energy to offset grid-supplied energy at most of our worldwide facilities.


Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure

We leverage science and innovation to develop industry-leading therapeutics for areas of unmet medical need.


Reduced Inequalities

We formed a Diversity Council in 2018 to enhance our inclusion and diversity initiatives worldwide.
