We are a global business with an ambitious mission to help people do more, feel better and live longer.

We deliver on our commitments by operating responsibly and putting our values at the heart of everything we do.

Our Australian business is aligned with our global strategy and is structured around four key themes that help us demonstrate how we operate ethically and responsibly.

To achieve our mission and deliver a successful business, we must continuously review our operating model and pursue a strategy that delivers sustainable performance through innovation and expanding access.

Laying the foundations of our approach to responsible business are our company values – transparency, respect for people, integrity and patient/customer focus.

Operating at a global board level, our Corporate Responsibility Committee (CRC) ensures the approach we take on corporate responsibility is appropriate. The committee has overall oversight and sits within a clear organisational structure that ensures accountability.

In 2012 we developed 23 forward-looking commitments across the four areas of our responsible business approach. You can read more about these commitments on our global pages: Health for allOur behaviourOur peopleOur planet.

In Australia, we align our local business strategy and corporate responsibility strategy to these areas and support these global commitments.
