Novartis & Citizenship
As one of the first signatories of the United Nations Global Compact, we fully support its efforts to improve human rights, labor standards, the environment and efforts to combat corruption. The Global Compact has become the cornerstone of Corporate Citizenship at Novartis – an integral part of how we operate, and a key to our success. Our commitment to Corporate Citizenship rests on four pillars:
- people and communities
- ethical business conduct
