Society has increasingly high expectations for ethical behavior from global healthcare companies – expectations that very often go beyond what is legally required. We are taking steps to ensure our standards align with these expectations.
Code of Ethics
Novartis is committed to ensuring our associates are empowered to do what’s right. On September 01, 2020, we introduced a new Code of Ethics for Novartis. Created by our associates, for our associates, our new Code is a collection of our commitments to ethical standards across our business.
Novartis publishes an annual Novartis in Society ESG Report (formerly our Corporate Responsibility Report) prepared in accordance with reporting frameworks including the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI). The Novartis in Society ESG Report shows progress on environmental, social and governance topics and demonstrates the company’s commitment in global health and corporate responsibility.
