Celgene and the Sustainable Development Goals

Launched in 2015, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals created by the United Nations through a process involving its 193 Member States along with NGOs and the private sector. The goals contains a broad range of sustainable development issues, including poverty and hunger, improving health and education, making cities more sustainable, combating climate change, and protecting oceans and forests.

At Celgene, we recognize the importance of contributions from the private sector in reaching the SDGs and are strongly committed to supporting them. Celgene’s people, expertise, collaborations and financial resources help advance the SDGs with a particular emphasis on ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being (Goal 3). The following eight SDGs are the ones we consider to be most relevant to our operations and sustainability areas of focus:
