At GSK we are on a mission. A mission to help people do more, feel better, live longer.

We know that healthy communities depend on healthy people, and healthy communities are the backbone of strong, sustainable societies. But the plain fact is that there are still millions of people without access to basic healthcare, there are thousands of diseases without adequate treatments and there are millions who suffer from everyday ailments.

We want to change this. That’s why we are harnessing our scientific expertise, our partnerships and our global reach to develop and make medicines, vaccines and consumer healthcare products for people who need them.

As a business we have responsibilities to society, and society has expectations of us. Our goal is to meet those responsibilities and expectations – and, where possible, exceed them.

Behaving responsibly does not compromise commercial success, but enables it. By doing what business does best – in our case, developing new products and improving access to them – we can deliver strong, sustainable performance and help improve the lives of people all over the world.

This is a big challenge. It means that we’ve had to change the way we do things – often quite radically – and we will continue to change, as we look for new ways to improve the lives of patients and consumers.”
