December 12, 2016

2016 Social Responsibility Award Excellent Company and the 2016 China’s Best Corporate Citizenship Award The Company of the Year trophies


Sanofi China was recognized "Excellent Company" for the second year in a row at the 9th CSR Award Ceremony. "Changing the world through responsibility" was the main theme for this year’s event, which was hosted by the Xinhua News Agency and the Research Center for CSR of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

This excellence award reflects the subsidiary’s innovative programs to promote access to healthcare in the counties. For instance, the creation of the Primary Care Business Unit in 2011 has enabled people in more than 1,200 Chinese counties to access healthcare services without having to travel to metropolitan areas.

In addition, Sanofi China was awarded "Company of the Year" at the 13th China Corporate Citizenship Forum during the Corporate Citizenship Award Ceremony – one of the oldest and most prestigious CSR awards in China. Sanofi China thus became the only healthcare company to win this award at the Forum’s 2016 edition.

These two awards underline the commitment of Sanofi China in terms of Social Responsibility, equal access to healthcare and innovation policies.
