Commitment to citizenship

As a global company, our commitment to corporate citizenship and environmental sustainability reflects the best interests of our patients, our stakeholders and the communities we serve.

Corporate Citizenship at Biogen

Our commitment to improving lives goes beyond our therapies toward contributing to solutions for societal challenges.

Support that goes beyond medicine

We support patients and those who care for them with a range of helpful services, financial assistance and other programs.

Supporting science education, serving communities

We are dedicated to promoting access to science education and essential human services for children and their families through the Biogen Foundation.

Creating opportunities through grants

  • Partners in Possibility

    The Biogen Grants team strives to create opportunities through educational grants, corporate sponsorships, fellowships, exhibits, charitable contributions and in-kind donations.

    We collaborate with a wide range of patient, medical and scientific organizations that share our mission of improving health and facilitating access to therapies. Our U.S. and international grants programs provide meaningful opportunities for these communities to gain knowledge, better understand treatment choices and advocate for patient health and wellbeing.

  • Medical Education

    Our medical education programs aim to catalyze the power of science through support of educational grants and scientific programs for healthcare professionals. These include both accredited and non-accredited educational activities that promote improving care and outcomes for patients worldwide in several therapeutic areas. 

  • Medical Fellowships

    Our medical fellowships support talented clinicians early in their careers with the goal of propelling the next generation of care. We sponsor both emerging and established programs designed to train multiple sclerosis and hemophilia specialists, with a strong focus in the clinical arena. 

  • Charitable Contributions

    It is our goal to help create and inspire new opportunities for patient communities. We support patient-focused organizations and programs through general donations that both empower great ideas and give back to the communities to which we are so dedicated. 

  • Sponsorships & Exhibits

    Through corporate sponsorship, advertising opportunities and other means, we support a wide range of activities for the medical, scientific, patient and local communities, including industry conferences, health fairs, annual meetings and fundraising efforts. These events are invaluable opportunities for us to directly engage with and respond to our communities. Many Biogen employees provide hands-on support for the events through volunteer engagement.

Shrinking our environmental footprint

As we grow, we strive to be, in a way, smaller. A smaller environmental footprint can make a bigger impact in the communities in which we live and operate.

Our commitment

Our approach to environmental sustainability focuses on carbon neutrality, water and waste.

Carbon neutrality

Biogen became a carbon neutral company in 2014 and maintained that status in 2015 with a commitment to continue doing so moving forward.

  

How we do business

At Biogen, we focus on acting responsibly in all aspects of our business, working to ensure honesty, fairness and integrity.
