Leading the way in pharmaceutical corporate social responsibility

As a member of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Alliance Healthcare takes healthcare corporate social responsibility very seriously. We touch millions of lives every day, delivering healthcare and supporting communities through our business values and day-to-day operations. As a result, we’re in an excellent position to have a profound and positive effect on the world.

Community

We aim to be a responsible neighbour in local communities and have a positive effect on global health through large-scale, long-term initiatives. We are taking action in several areas:

  • Health and wellbeing: To support the health and vitality of our communities.
  • Cancer programs: Mobilize our resources and partnerships with Vitamin Angels UK, Action Medical Research for Children and the EORTC to fight cancer.
  • Supporting young people: Enable young people to achieve their potential, wherever they’re from.

Environment

Walgreens Boots Alliance has a significant impact on the environment, but through our commitment to corporate social responsibility in the pharmaceutical industry, we can also drive large-scale initiatives to reduce that impact. Here’s what we’re doing to help protect and preserve the environment:

  • Energy: Reduce our energy consumption on a comparable basis, as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP).
  • Waste: Reduce the waste we create on a comparable basis and contribute to the drive towards circular economies through more recycling and re-use. We are currently working towards reducing the use of single-use plastic secondary packaging within the UK business by 60% by September 2021.

Marketplace

At Walgreens Boots Alliance, we aim to do business fairly and with integrity, and accountability to our customers is at the heart of our approach. We’re pursuing three key goals in this area:

  • Transparency and traceability: Enable the transparency and traceability of the ingredients used in our product brands. 
  • Ethical sourcing: Protect human rights and support diverse suppliers by driving ethical sourcing practices across our supply chain.  
  • External stakeholders: Work collaboratively with key external organizations to engage in issues that have the greatest social relevance for the communities we serve.

Workplace

As part of our commitment to pharmaceutical corporate social responsibility, we are striving to create a workplace that makes our employees feel supported, appreciated, and valued both inside and outside the workplace:

  • Employee health and wellbeing: Proactively support the health and wellbeing of our employees. 
  • Equal opportunities: Deliver equal opportunities for everyone across employment practices, policies, and procedures.
  • Health and safety: Improve our approach to health and safety for both colleagues and customers.
