Making a Positive Impact in the U.S.
At Sanofi, our passion is to prevent, treat and cure illness and disease throughout life. We are driven to improve the health of communities and to find new solutions for patients by combining breakthrough science with advanced technology.
Inspired by the resilience of our patients and strengthened by our heritage, we are always working for new ways to fight chronic, complex and rare diseases with medicines that offer hope for patients and the future of healthcare.
By investing in worthwhile causes, we put our commitment to corporate citizenship into action. We provide contributions to support a diverse range of organizations and initiatives that we believe can make a meaningful difference in the patients we serve and the communities we live in.
As we look forward to a “new normal”, we will continue to rely on scientific evidence, medical guidance, and government requirements to conduct our business safely and responsibly. To control viral transmission, we will consider:
- Company support for and participation in live 3rd party sponsorship of events, provided the scientific evidence and federal, state, and local rules on controlling community spread of the virus at events and gatherings allows us to do so safely.
- Company support for and participation in medical congresses, provided the scientific evidence and federal, state, and local rules on controlling community spread of the virus at events and gatherings allows us to do so safely.
Our US Pandemic Crisis Committee will continue to monitor the pandemic situation and update these principles as events evolve and scientific and medical guidance changes. The safety of our patients, worker, and the communities where we live, and work, will continue to guide our efforts to serve the patients that depend on us.
