Lilly Operating Responsibly

At Lilly, our corporate responsibility efforts are part of the fabric of who we are, part of our efforts to make life better for people around the world. Our heritage shapes who we are and informs what we do today – and tomorrow. Since our founding by Colonel Eli Lilly in 1876, we have pioneered medical breakthroughs like human insulin, the polio vaccine, and many other therapies. We’ve also set a high standard for giving back to our communities.

How we do business is as important as what we do. Underpinning everything we do are our values of integrity, excellence, and respect for people, which were laid out by the Lilly family long ago and still guide us today. We demonstrate our values through responsible business practices that reflect our commitments to strong governance principles: transparency; patient, customer, and employee privacy; ethical product promotion; and stakeholder engagement.

You can also see these values in our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint and create a better tomorrow for future generations. The medicines we make require the use of valuable resources, including energy, water, and raw materials. Lilly takes a holistic approach to understanding and managing our environmental impacts across the product life cycle. We are deeply committed to conducting our business in an environmentally, socially, and financially responsible manner.
