A Mission of Corporate Citizenship

Corporate Citizenship

Our approach to Corporate Citizenship begins with our Mission. Written more than 50 years ago, its meaning is more relevant than ever, inspiring us to be proactive instead of reactive, helping ensure that society benefits from our commitment to maintain good citizenship as a company.

Our Vision for Corporate Citizenship

Wherever we interact with society—be it with people, product, or philanthropy—we are guided by our Mission to maintain good citizenship as a company. Our vision for Corporate Citizenship guides us to:

  • Leverage our resources, assets, and expertise to catalyze dramatic improvement in the lives of those with chronic disease.
  • Operate responsibly in all facets where our business intersects with society.

Our Focus

To achieve our vision, we align our citizenship initiatives with five pillars that define our unique focus.
