2023 Corporate Responsibility Report

Woman sitting

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

Patients are at the heart of everything we do. Driven by a heritage of scientific excellence, we strive to promote a supportive healthcare ecosystem and ensure equitable access to the most innovative treatments for those living within our therapeutic areas so they can live fuller, healthier lives. One way we can do that is to ensure we are connecting diverse communities to our clinical trials.


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 advancing diversity, equity and inclusion, and fostering well-being, including how we support a holistic health approach through our comprehensive employee benefits.


True to our credo of caring deeply, Biogen, the Biogen Foundation and our passionate employees work together to strengthen health systems and serve communities around the world – through our programs, volunteering or giving. We are committed to advancing better health in communities, with a special focus on food insecurity.


Acting on our understanding of the deep links between health and the environment, we refined our sustainability strategy to focus on three core pillars: responsible product development, sustainable operations and engaged suppliers. We made progress in our environmental strategy with leadership demonstrated by our employees, with those in our Solothurn site championing sustainability.

Reinforcing Biogen’s culture of transparency and disclosure by sharing our ESG data.
