Responsibility


At AstraZeneca we’re united by our desire to push the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines.

We know it’s how we will continue to transform the lives of millions of patients around the world while delivering value to our employees, our communities, and the environment. We believe there is a strong connection between the health of our business, our patients, our workforce, and the planet and each of these impact one another.

 

How do we approach sustainability at AstraZeneca?

Our sustainability strategy is built around three pillars that put health at the heart of our work—beginning with Access to Healthcare. As a global company, we seek to leverage our reach, scale and expertise to effect real change in
16 sustainability issues. Our employees work on initiatives ranging from preventative health screenings in regions with unmet medical needs to workforce wellbeing.



Our Approach to Access to healthcare

Health is central to a functioning society and connects us all. We work with the industry and other partners to remove barriers to access for people, regardless of social or economic condition.

Our approach is centred on our understanding of the healthcare systems and needs of the people who live in emerging economies. We develop medicines, create supporting programmes and channel our investments – including those focused on prevention and strengthening health systems – to meet the needs of communities.
