Making a positive difference in the world is at the heart of what we do at Amgen̟̟—and it goes beyond making vital medicines. Each year, Amgen and our staff members dedicate significant resources towards building a better tomorrow.
Amgen’s approach to corporate responsibility starts with our mission to serve patients and is executed through our Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) framework.
Our ESG efforts are grounded in our mission, from our endeavours to strengthen science education and inspire the next generation of scientists, to expanding access to our medicines and supporting efforts to strengthen healthcare systems worldwide, to pursuing a more environmentally sustainable business model. While Amgen is focused on the financial and data-driven metrics of our ESG programs, we also value the true human impact of our business and strive for a strong culture of inclusion and belonging.
Amgen’s ESG framework is built on four strategic pillars:
This framework facilitates our ability to address the interconnectivity of issues in a holistic way across our business and integrate these activities more closely with our long-term strategy.
