Business ethics

We are committed to upholding ethical principles and behaving with integrity in our activities to preserve the trust of the patients and the communities we serve, in a way that is ethical, sustainable and creates long-term value we establish and enforce clear rules in accordance with the legislative framework in each country where we operate, and we implement rigorous in-house systems to prevent violations of internal rules.

Our business ethics framework

Protecting patients' privacy

We have established robust in-house policies governing our relations with these key stakeholders—in particular, a policy on interactions with patients, patient advocates and groups. Sanofi receives personal health data from patients (for example from patients enrolled in clinical trials) all over the world, and we respect the highly confidential character of such information. We apply the highest standards for the protection of personal data, including the European Personal Data Protection Directive 95/46 EC and the United States HIPAA Privacy Rule in addition to local rules. To implement and enforce these rules, Sanofi’s Global Privacy Officer has established a number of policies, procedures and tools.
