Three children taking part in Red Nose Day 2017

Setting the pace on vital issues

Walgreens Boots Alliance is proud to be a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) leader, setting the pace on some of the most important issues of our day, from healthcare and combatting climate change to valuing diversity and fostering inclusion.

Our Company is privileged to distribute and dispense medicines to millions of people every day in communities around the world. Our customers rely on our pharmacists for information, support and advice; and they access daily living and beauty products at our convenient retail locations.

As a retail and wholesale pharmacy company we operate in markets in which ethical behavior is of utmost importance and we have a moral imperative to be a good corporate citizen. Our customers want products they can trust. Our employees want to work for a company that does the right thing. Society expects us to work with responsible, diverse suppliers and to show progress in reducing our environmental impact.

In order to be a catalyst for change we focus on initiatives that generate excitement and engagement among our customers and our employees. Millions of people join us to raise funds to combat child poverty on Red Nose Day. Still, access to healthcare is a serious issue, and we have a unique capacity to make a difference.

We support health and wellbeing in the communities where we operate, through our drug take back program, pharmacists specially trained to speak with people about cancer, free HIV testing days, flu shot vouchers and fundraisers for numerous health-related organizations. And we help provide lifesaving immunizations to remote areas of the globe through our ongoing partnership with the United Nations Foundation.

We are pleased to present in our full 2017 CSR Report annual data across our ongoing operations, including an independent review of specified indicators. The data show the results of our efforts to reduce emissions and waste, further diversity and inclusion and contribute to groups that work on addressing pressing global issues.
