WBA colleague speaking to children at CSR event

A Message from Our Executive Chairman and Our Chief Executive Officer

At Walgreens Boots Alliance we believe we can be a force for good, leveraging our many decades of experience and our international scale to care for people and the planet.

We are proud to present our annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Report, communicating our progress on issues such as access to affordable and quality healthcare, helping to prevent opioid abuse, collaborating with industry partners to address packaging concerns, combating climate change and promoting diversity.

At Walgreens Boots Alliance we believe that we can drive business results while benefiting society, and for that reason, we focus on initiatives that contribute to our profit, generate enthusiasm, and positively contribute to society. We build customer loyalty and energize employees through initiatives and partnerships such as Red Nose Day, Macmillan Cancer Support, ME to WE, Vitamin Angels and Get a Shot. Give a Shot., while also helping children in need and supporting healthcare services around the world.

In 2018, Walgreens Boots Alliance carried out an externally facilitated CSR materiality assessment, which engaged numerous stakeholders, to determine the CSR topics where we have the most impact. This assessment guided us on the disclosures contained in this latest report and will steer us in the future as our CSR strategy evolves to address emerging issues.

We are humbled by the numerous ways that Walgreens Boots Alliance employees share our commitment to our CSR goals —in everything from raising funds for our cancer charity partners to innovating to reduce waste and energy use—and for that we thank them. We also thank our generous customers for supporting the causes we champion that help to reduce poverty and bring vital healthcare to children around the world.
