Merck | Our Approach to the Sustainable Development Goals

“We are honored to play a role in the global efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Through our ongoing commitments to address important health challenges, including maternal health, HIV/AIDS, cervical cancer and neglected tropical diseases, we are mobilizing the best of our company to help save and improve lives around the world.” ~ Kenneth C. Frazier, Chairman and CEO

While all of the SDGs are essential to foster sustainable development, and are being addressed by our company, we have prioritized seven global goals as being the most connected to our work. As a health care company, our efforts are most aligned with SDG 3—Good Health & Well-Being—with six other SDGs having significant relevance to areas in which our company can make an impact. Addressing the SDGs is both a responsibility and an opportunity, a lens through which we can identify ways to contribute to societal needs while strengthening our business. Learn more here.
