ESG Report & Goals

Our Commitment to the Future: Equity and Sustainability

BeiGene’s mission is to build the first next-generation biopharmaceutical company — one that expands the highest-quality therapies to more people around the world — through courage, persistent innovation, and challenging the status quo. Achieving our mission requires that we operate responsibly in all aspects of our business.

Our ambition is to be a leading corporate citizen, acting with courage, creativity, and discipline to ensure we are meeting the diverse needs of our stakeholders – from patients and colleagues to investors and our communities, as well as the environment. In 2021, we formalized our ESG function, led by a new Senior Director, Global Reputation and ESG Lead. We also launched a new ESG strategy and framework, Change Is the Cure, which will guide the development of goals and targets for our most material issues. We will provide ongoing updates about our efforts toward achieving our goals annually in our ESG Report.

United Nations (U.N.) Global Compact

BeiGene is proud to join the United Nations Global Compact as part of our commitment to being a responsible company. This commitment is to operate responsibly, in alignment with universal sustainability principles, take actions to support society, and report to the UN Global Compact annually on our ongoing efforts.

Joining the Global Compact is a reflection of BeiGene’s values and aligns well with our fundamental vision of bringing highly impactful and affordable medicines more broadly to people. As BeiGene grows its enterprise and reputation across geographies, we aim to do so sustainably and in partnership with the global public health community. This benefits both society and our long-term success.

As a global organization, BeiGene is aligned with the UN’s sustainable development goals. Specific to global gender parity, BeiGene will be supporting the UN’s Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP) which provides a strong framework to support companies when striving for gender equality in the workplace, marketplace, and community. Please stay tuned to hear more about goals to be announced in the upcoming ESG report to be launched in 2023 around U.S. workforce diversity at management levels, global gender parity (particularly at VP level & above), and Board diversity composition.
