Corporate Social Responsibility

At Biogen, our mission is clear: we are pioneers in neuroscience. We care deeply about making a difference and we are passionate about our commitment to patients, our employees, the environment and the communities where we live and work. The foundation for these commitments is reflected in our approach to corporate social responsibility (CSR) – an approach that we believe provides real benefit for our business and the world.

Our employees care deeply and believe in the work we do. We come to work every day knowing that thousands of people worldwide count on Biogen and our therapies to make a meaningful difference in their lives.

We work to have an impact beyond our medicines as we strive to improve patient health outcomes, solve social and environmental challenges, cultivate a workplace that enables our employees to thrive, support local communities, and inspire future generations of scientists. This is central to our mission and vital to our growth.  

 

 

Commitment to Patients

Biogen’s technology and engineering capabilities create innovative ways to seamlessly transition products from development to manufacturing with the intent of bringing our high-quality medicines to market faster. We respect the contributions of health care providers caring for people living with neurological diseases. We honor the important role of caregivers, families, and friends who care about them. Biogen is committed to working with advocacy and patient organizations as they serve the communities they represent. 

 

Access to Medicine

Our focus on neuroscience, our deep scientific expertise, and our courage to take appropriate risks make us leaders in the research and development of medicines to transform neuroscience to benefit society. We recognize the challenges facing health care systems today, and we collaborate with regulatory authorities and customers such as health care providers and payers so that those in need can access our medicines. 

 

Biogen Foundation

The Biogen Foundation supports access to science education for diverse populations and to essential human services for children and families in the communities in which we work and live. Learn more about our commitment to sparking a passion for science and discovery.

 

Corporate Giving

Each year, Biogen commits significant financial support through a variety of corporate giving initiatives that positively impact the communities where we live and work. Learn more about our global grant and strategy giving.

 

Environmental Sustainability 

Our impact on the environment factors significantly into how we view our goals of improving the lives of patients and operating as a responsible and sustainable company. We carefully manage the way we use resources, striving to reduce, mitigate, and, in the case of carbon emissions, neutralize our footprint wherever possible. 

 

Cultivating Our Workplace

We empower our people to build rewarding careers and foster a culture of learning that pushes them to take the initiative and seek out growth opportunities. We value and support our people managers so they can effectively lead their teams. We are especially proud of our efforts to promote a diverse and inclusive workplace and to advance women in leadership roles.
