Sustainability

The global community is facing numerous challenges that also affect our company and to which we are seeking answers. These challenges range from climate impact mitigation, resource scarcity, a growing global population and demographic change through to insufficient access to medicines for people in low- and middle-income countries. We are helping to find solutions to these issues and are continually working to sustainably shape our progression for tomorrow. At the same time, we are working to become more resilient to potential risks.

The United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda is a global plan to promote sustainable peace and prosperity and to protect our planet. Since 2016, countries and organizations have been working to implement this agenda with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our goal is for our business activities to create shared value that is both measurable and makes a recognizable contribution. In this context, we rely on the power of healthcare and Life Sciences – with responsibility for the well-being of mankind.
