At GSK responsible business is how we do business. Our mission is to improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better, live longer.

To achieve this mission we are adapting our business model and pursuing a strategy that delivers sustainable performance through innovation and expanding access, driven by our values.

We report key information on our approach to responsible business alongside our financial performance within the Annual Report. Our Responsible Business Supplement (PDF) provides a greater level of context and detail of our work against our responsible business commitments.

How we operate is just as
important to us as delivering financial performance."

Sir Andrew Witty, CEO, GSK


In 2012 we developed 23 forward-looking commitments across the four areas of our responsible business approach. They aim to address global health needs and are aligned with our strategic priorities and our values.

For information on how we are progressing against our commitments in each of our four areas read our Responsible Business Supplement (PDF)

Health for All

We are tackling some of the biggest global health challenges by promoting open innovation to meet unmet medical needs, making our medicines and vaccines more accessible, and strengthening healthcare systems.

Our Behavior

Our values underpin everything we do – from ensuring rigorous safety standards in the development and manufacture of new medicines to interacting ethically with healthcare professionals, patient groups and political stakeholders.

Our People

We aim to create a safe and inclusive workplace where everyone at GSK can feel able and inspired to realize their potential and help us meet global health challenges.

Our Planet

We aim to reduce environmental impacts across our value chain while extending access to our products for the people who need them – by minimizing our carbon footprint, reducing local water impacts and cutting operational waste.
