CSR Strategy

CSR is an integral part of Sanofi’s core business strategy. By building a pragmatic and innovative approach to meet today’s CSR challenges, it contributes to value creation and improving our business.

Our CSR Governance

The Sanofi Board considers issues related to the Company’s strategy, in line with its concern for the interests of shareholders and other stakeholders, and CSR issues.

A CSR Cross-functional strategy Committee (CCC) was set up in 2017 to identify projects or topics that need to be discussed at the Executive Committee level.

Our CSR agenda focuses on the four key areas which have the greatest significance to our activities and our stakeholders: Ethics and Transparency, Access to Healthcare for the Underserved, Engage with Communities, and Healthy Planet.
