Amgen focuses on areas of high unmet medical need and leverages its expertise to strive for solutions that improve health outcomes and dramatically improve people’s lives. A biotechnology innovator since 1980, Amgen has grown to be one of the world’s leading independent biotechnology companies, has reached millions of patients around the world and is developing a pipeline of medicines with breakaway potential.
While bringing innovative medicines to people suffering from serious diseases is the best way Amgen can contribute to the greater good, we know that society confronts multiple challenges and we are working to do our part to address them. Our efforts fall into four categories:
- Healthy People – We focus on removing barriers that limit equitable access to healthcare so that people can live their healthiest lives. In 2021, for example, the Amgen Safety Net Foundation provided $2.2 billion* worth of Amgen medicines at no cost to low-income Americans.
- Healthy Society – We work toward a more just society for our employees and the people we serve. For instance, Amgen is a founding member of the OneTen coalition, comprised of leading companies with a collective goal over the next 10 years to hire one million Black Americans into good-paying, family-sustaining jobs.
- Healthy Planet – We prioritize sustainability and aim to minimize our environmental impact to preserve natural resources for generations to come. In 2021, for example, Amgen announced plans to invest more than $200 million to become carbon neutral by 2027, while also reducing our water use by 40% and our waste generated by 70%.
- A Healthy Amgen – We hold ourselves to high standards in all we do to ensure our culture and products reflect Amgen values. Every year, for example, all Amgen employees around the world complete a comprehensive Code of Conduct training to reinforce how we must interact with each other, as well as with physicians, regulators, government officials, and other external stakeholders.
