Build long term relationship with our communities

In 2016 Sanofi launched the Stakeholder Committee. It aims to discuss the key topics impacting Sanofi and work with stakeholders on concrete action.

This committee is made up of around forty people representing the Company’s different external stakeholders (NGOs, patients’ associations, official bodies, healthcare professionals, researchers, business and finance professionals, trade unions, the media).

Working groups focus on four priority subjects: access to healthcare, the price of innovation, Sanofi’s approach to R&D and its socio-economic footprint in the geographies where it does business.
