CEO message

CEO message

I want AstraZeneca not only to be valued as a source of great medicines, but also to be trusted for the way in which we do business worldwide.

—David R. Brennan
Chief Executive Officer

Our business is focused on making the most meaningful difference to patient health through great medicines.

What we do is important, but how we do it is just as important. As we drive our business forward, we must not lose sight of our fundamental commitment to doing business the right way. I expect people at all levels always to do the right thing, not just the easy thing - and to be motivated, empowered and supported in doing so.

Only by living up to our core values, wherever AstraZeneca has a presence or an impact, can we maintain the trust of our stakeholders and wider society that is so vital to our reputation and licence to do business.

The AstraZeneca Code of Ethics is our guide to understanding how our high- level values are to be translated into consistent actions worldwide. It provides guidance about what is expected of each of us, as we work to achieve our business goals. I expect you to study it closely and to live by its principles in your day- to - day business activities.

We are all responsible for making sure that nothing, including the need to meet targets, direct orders from a more senior employee, or pressure from colleagues, ever compromises our commitment to honesty and integrity.
