Environmental, Social, Governance

Sanofi’s social impact strategy aims to build a healthier, more resilient world by ensuring access to healthcare for the world’s poorest people, and bringing a much needed focus to the development of treatment for childhood cancer. Integrated into the company’s Play to Win business strategy, Sanofi’s commitment to society will continue the fight against infectious diseases such as sleeping sickness and polio, while accelerating its goals to reduce the environmental impact of its products and its worldwide operations. Key to tackling the global challenges that face society are its people, who each have a role to play in building a diverse and inclusive workplace.
