Responsibility Responsible business is how we do business
We have a special purpose: to help people do more, feel better, live longer. To achieve this 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 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.
