In September 2015, a new era of global development began when the United Nations (UN) officially launched its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to transform our world and "leave no one behind" by 2030.
The UN has called for broad-based support of the SDGs, including active involvement by the private sector. To make a significant and sustainable impact, the public and private sectors, as well as civil society stakeholders, are seeking to align activities and work together. Pfizer is committed to helping facilitate industry engagement and aligning our corporate objectives to accelerate impact for healthy individuals and patients across the globe.
At Pfizer, our purpose – to bring innovative therapies to patients that significantly improve their lives – forms the basis of our commitment to all 17 of the SDGs, particularly Goal 3 – delivering Good Health and Well-Being. Every day, we use our knowledge, expertise and resources to find new ways to positively impact public health, which in turn advances other global development objectives. We call this approach to global health Entrepreneurship for Good, and we are committed to using it to help achieve the SDGs.
Throughout this report, you’ll see the SDG icons to highlight the work we are doing across Pfizer to meet these achievements by 2030.
