ESG Report 2022

At Biogen, we pioneer science to defeat complex and devastating diseases. We believe our business is a force for good through the patients we serve, the innovations we advance, the jobs we create and the communities we support. True to our purpose, we are continuing to serve humanity through science while advancing a healthier, more sustainable and equitable world.

Access & Health Equity

We believe everyone deserves access to a supportive health ecosystem that enables them to live the healthiest, fullest life possible. That’s one reason why we work fearlessly to promote access and health equity. Our strategies include increasing representation of diverse patient populations in clinical trials and throughout the development process, addressing affordability and pricing, and providing medicines to those in need, including a baby in Kosovo who was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)


Achieving success in developing innovative and groundbreaking medicines requires a workforce that feels supported to perform their best and is celebrated for who they are together and as individuals. Across Biogen, we focus on promoting career opportunities and well-being and on advancing diversity, equity and inclusion, including the development programs we have to support women leaders in the organization, like Hani Houshyar, Head of Global Product Development and Commercialization for zuranolone.


We continue to make strides in reducing the environmental impact of our products, operations and supply chain. Recognizing that community clinics are being disproportionately impacted by the results of climate change, we provided support to help frontline community health clinics become more climate-resilient


True to our credo of caring deeply, Biogen, the Biogen Foundation and our passionate employees work together to inspire students, strengthen health systems and serve communities around the world. We are committed to inspiring the next generation of scientists, like Jadah Depina, who is part of Biogen’s STAR Initiative.

CEO Letter

I joined Biogen as President and CEO to lead a purpose-driven company that is focused on patients and willing to tackle the healthcare challenges from which others have shied away. Since joining I have met many people living with the diseases that we are addressing, underscoring why our work matters and how many people are counting on our medicines.
