Corporate responsibility is woven into the fabric of Lilly. It defines how we think and act, permeates all of our business areas, and is a vital part of our heritage.
Capping off another eventful year of corporate responsibility, today Lilly was named to The Civic 50, an annual list of America’s most community-minded companies. The Civic 50, an initiative of Bloomberg LP and Points of Light, was created two years ago to measure corporate civic engagement and to recognize companies that incorporate socially responsible practices and community leadership into their culture.
From our Connecting Hearts Abroad ambassadors who volunteer for service assignments in impoverished communities, to our employees donating their time and energy to community-minded projects during our Global Day of Service, to our focus on solutions for global health issues such as TB, we take this responsibility seriously both at home and abroad.
As we look ahead to 2015, we will continue to think globally while acting locally, using our resources, partnerships, and the passion of our employees to make life better for more people around the world. Here’s to another great year.
