Our business is built on the conviction that the formula for lasting success is to stay focused, think long-term and do business in a financially, socially and environmentally responsible way.
Our key contribution is to discover and develop innovative medicines and make them accessible to patients throughout the world. But we know that to support better diabetes health for generations to come, we must also invest in efforts to prevent type 2 diabetes and obesity, educating healthcare professionals, offering patient support programmes, and ensuring that we have no negative impact on people, communities and the environment.
Tens of millions of people living with diabetes cannot get access to the life-saving insulin and the medical care they need.
We are committed to doing our part to ensure that no one should go without access to medicine and treatment.
We are transitioning from a linear economy of 'take-make-dispose' to a circular economy based on three principles: Design out waste and pollution, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems.
We have to halt the rise
of type 2 diabetes. Not only to stop more and more people from
facing a life with this serious condition, but also to take off
preassure from our health care systems and societies.
The Cities Changing Diabetes™ programme is our repsonse. 19 cities on five continents are finding and sharing solutions, to advance healthy city living and prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes.
