RESPONSIBILITY

Corporate Responsibility

Corporate responsibility is at the core of Alexion’s mission to transform the lives of patients with devastating and rare diseases. As we pursue this mission, we are deeply committed to integrity, ethics, and quality in all that we do, and we are dedicated to protecting the environment and supporting the communities in which we live and work.

Our approach to responsibility aligns with our three values: find answers, change the world, and create a legacy for the patients and families we serve. We believe our pledge of responsibility will enable us to succeed today, as well as help us to achieve long-term success.

Citizenship

Alexion is committed to transforming the lives of patients and creating positive change. Our values—Find Answers, Change the World, and Create a Legacy—guide our philanthropic endeavors as we strive to make a meaningful impact as a global corporate citizen.

Find Answers

In our drive to find answers to the most difficult issues facing our communities, Alexion launched a competitive grant initiative asking our non-profit neighbors to identify overlooked issues in the community and propose their innovative solutions. In a field that included dozens of proposals, Liberty Community Services’ RESPECT Work Program was chosen as the first-time recipient of this grant. This partnership, designed to place individuals who are homeless into temporary work assignments with the ultimate goal of transitioning into full-time employment, exemplifies Alexion’s commitment to finding answers for patients and for our local communities.

Change the World

At Alexion, we deliver nothing less than transformation to change the world for our patients. We are harnessing the power of our global workforce to bring the same level of transformation to our communities. On September 23, 2016, Alexion held its first Global Day of Service, during which we worked together with charitable organizations across the globe to address some of the most pressing social needs in our communities.

Create a Legacy

In order to create a lasting impact on people around the world, we are supporting two of the UN’s Global Goals that best fit our mission as a company: Good Health & Well-Being and Quality Education. By supporting these two tenets of sustainable development, we are helping to ensure that current and future generations can live prosperous and healthy lives—leaving no one behind.
