We believe in providing an open environment to help build a foundation of trust and respect among our colleagues, health care professionals, patients, stockholders and the public. Making information available is important as we continue to operate our business to the highest standards, and in keeping with current laws and regulations.
We are firmly focused on Our Mission, and take our responsibility for transparency seriously. Sustainability reporting is a clear example of an area in which we will continue to work to increase transparency as we show progress towards our Sustainability 2020 Goals.
Making clinical trial information available to patients, investigators, researchers and physicians is a critical part of our commitment to transparency, scientific exchange and, ultimately, innovation.
We support independent initiatives aimed at helping patients, building communities where we live and work and advancing health-care and scientific understanding, and we disclose which organizations we support.
Interactions with Healthcare Providers
We are committed to supporting financial disclosure laws and codes as an extension of our own efforts to increase public awareness of the positive collaboration between industry and healthcare providers and healthcare organizations.
Policy and Advocacy Engagement and Political Contributions
We engage in government advocacy to help foster continued innovation. We contribute to political candidates and organizations that support our views on healthcare issues affecting the industry, when permitted by law.
For us, sustainability is working towards addressing unmet medical needs, increasing access to medicines and embracing our responsibility to care for our environment. We are committed to increasing transparency in our sustainability reporting.
Ethics and Compliance
Our values and principles guide every decision we make and commit us to the highest standard of moral and ethical behavior. We promise to act on our belief that the priceless ingredient of every product we make is the integrity of its maker.
