We are committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
In September 2015, the General Assembly of the United Nations unanimously adopted “17 Sustainable Development Goals” as part of the “2030 Sustainable Development Agenda” to eradicate poverty, protect the planet and drive prosperity for all. The agreement represented an important milestone for advancing to the next phase of sustainable development with numerous stakeholders.
In alignment with our own strategy, Roche is committed to supporting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals which aim for better health and prosperity for all.
Our main goals are to use natural resources consciously and economically, to ensure that resources are given the opportunity to be recycled and renewed, to produce zero waste with clean technologies, and to be instrumental in the continuity of sustainable development.
In addition to being a preferred company within the scope of our corporate strategy, we aim to provide a happy working environment and to be a company that attaches importance to the environment and social social responsibility.
The reflections of our social responsibility approach are not limited to the field of healthcare; we also carry out high quality and pioneering works with our services in the fields of infrastructure, environment and education. We will continue to improve the quality of life with our global understanding and local creative solutions.
