Our responsibility

Pfizer is the world’s largest research-based pharmaceutical company. We discover, develop, manufacture and market prescription medicines across more therapeutic areas than any other company in our industry. We provide medicines for many common illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, and for rarer conditions, such as types of cancer that afflict only small numbers of people.

As a healthcare company, Pfizer is committed to working to help people live healthier lives. This has always been a core part of our business, through our medicines, our work with the medical community and our extensive disease awareness and patient information programmes. We do, of course, have commercial priorities and a financial responsibility to our shareholders, but we also recognise that we have wider responsibilities to society. Working in partnership with our stakeholders and customers and playing an active role in the communities in which we live and work sit at the heart of our core values as a business.

Our contribution to the UK healthcare community reflects the commitment of our employees at our sites across the UK, and whilst in recent times we have dramatically reshaped Pfizer into more flexible, entrepreneurial and accountable customer-focused Business Units our values remain the same.
