Societal Impact

Investing with impact

As a leading life sciences investor, we have an opportunity to drive positive societal change. We have a strong preference for investing in companies and assets that can improve the health of society and champion sustainable consumption and production.

We have identified three societal impact areas of focus that are particularly important to us. These are the areas where we can truly make a difference by leveraging our strong legacy, mission, life sciences expertise and our investment network.

The framework we use in establishing our impact focus areas is based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This ensures that our activities are truly anchored in what needs to be done to meet the critical needs of society and the planet.

We believe that we are uniquely positioned to invest and deliver considerable positive societal impact within the following areas:

We also have established three further focus areas based on three additional SDGs which we find embody our standards as a responsible owner. These closely align to our values of Performance, Respect and Responsibility, and they help us to ensure that our investments are working for the greater good.
