Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE) today announced the launch of its fourth integrated annual review (www.pfizer.com/annual), which summarizes the company’s 2013 financial, environmental and social responsibility performance.
Pfizer first combined the reporting of corporate responsibility activities, financial performance, and business strategy with its 2010 annual review, and since then, has continued to advance the integrated reporting of information relevant to all of the company’s stakeholders.
Pfizer Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ian C. Read said in his annual letter to shareholders that Pfizer had made clear progress on its mission to become the premier, innovative biopharmaceutical company. “In 2013, Pfizer achieved solid results for patients, consumers, and shareholders by maintaining our focus on developing new therapies, driving growth, and delivering value,” Mr. Read said. “Health care providers, regulators, and patients look to Pfizer to deliver medicines and vaccines that make peoples’ lives better,” he added. “By earning their trust, we also earn greater respect from society.”
In addition to summarizing the company’s financial performance, the annual review addresses the company’s progress relative to other key performance indicators, such as the number of top 20 diseases addressed by current and in-development Pfizer products, company efforts to improve access to medicines, and publicly stated targets achieved in the reduction of greenhouse gases.
