Our Approach To
At Regeneron, we use our unique knowledge and expertise for the benefit of society, the economy and the environment. By addressing issues that matter most to our business and society, we can build resiliency and improve our world. The focus of our responsibility remains: Doing Well by Doing Good.
Our 2025 global goals span three strategic focus areas
In 2020, we announced our next generation of responsibility goals which span across our three strategic focus areas. We engaged internal and external stakeholders and used leading corporate responsibility frameworks, including the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to help guide the development of these 12 goals.
