Responsibility Responsible business is how we do business
Our mission is to improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better, live longer. To achieve this mission we are adapting our business model and pursuing a strategy that delivers sustainable performance through innovation and expanding access, driven by our values.
We have 23 forward-looking commitments across the four areas of our responsible business approach. They aim to address global health needs and are aligned with our strategic priorities and our values.
Our four key focus areas
Health for all
Our part in tackling global health challenges and our aim to extend the benefits of our products to more people
We are changing the way we work to further embed our values in everything we do, including the way we research, develop, sell and market our products
Learn how we create an inspiring and supportive work environment that encourages employees to develop capabilities and achieve their best
To ensure we deliver high quality products to patients and consumers, we must protect the natural resources we need to make them today

Our governance structure
Our Board-level Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC) oversees our responsible business activities. It meets four times a year to provide high-level guidance and reviews performance against our commitments. Both the Chairman and CEO are among its members and Non-Executive Director, Lynn Elsenhans, is Chair of the CRC.
Management of key non-financial risks is governed by our Audit and Risk Committee. The Audit and Assurance team supports this committee by providing an independent view to the Board and senior management of how risk is being managed across the business consistent with an agreed Assurance Plan.
