Building Trust with Society
As a global company, we have a great responsibility and an even greater opportunity to lead the world in creating a positive social change. We can help catalyze a global response to complex challenges, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, by embracing societal impact as a core business objective.
Building trust with society is a key pillar of the Novartis corporate strategy and defines our focus areas for managing environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) topics: being part of the solution on pricing and access, tackling global health challenges, being a responsible citizen, and holding ourselves to high ethical standards. We are following an integrated approach across these global efforts, and are on a journey to create a culture in which ESG activities are deeply embedded in our daily work.
