Corporate Social Responsibility
At Allergan, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is more than just a “good idea.” For more than 20 years, we have maintained some of the highest CSR standards in the industry, focusing our efforts on sustainability initiatives in the areas of energy use, environmental protection and employee health and safety. Our employees around the world are encouraged to “think local,” to develop innovative programs that respond to the needs and concerns of local communities as well as continuing our broader efforts to create a greener, healthier environment. These efforts include a comprehensive approach to reducing energy use – for example, making smaller batches of pharmaceuticals – enabling us to trim our overall energy consumption, even as the company continues to grow. The cumulative effect of these and other sustainability programs has resulted in a significant overall decline in the generation of waste and greenhouse gases. In addition, Allergan is one of only a handful of pharmaceutical companies to be a part of the United Nations Global Compact, which sets important guidelines in the areas of human rights, labor, the environment and anti-corruption.
