Corporate Responsibility

Accepting Challenges to Improve the Health of Humanity

Stemming from the core values of Alnylam, our approach to corporate responsibility embodies our “Challenge Accepted” philosophy. Our corporate responsibility mission statement—“Accepting challenges to improve the health of humanity”—helps articulate how we approach our work each day. It describes our commitment to tackling unprecedented and complex challenges, taking courageous action, and using our business as a force for good.

Four core beliefs guide our ongoing corporate responsibility work:

We believe in the noble pursuit of working to improve the health of humanity.

We believe science has the power to solve our many complex social, health, and environmental challenges.

We believe diverse, inclusive, and equitable environments are essential for achieving breakthroughs.

We believe all communities deserve access to health solutions and social support.

These beliefs inform our Corporate Reponsibility as a company, and as advocates for five key areas of focus: patients, science, employees, communities, and our planet. Each of these has a guiding imperative, dedicated leadership team, and accountabilities to track and manage our impact.

Patients: We Strive to Improve Patients’ Lives and Enable Access to Potentially Life-Changing Treatments

Put simply, patients come first. Alnylam teams throughout the world address issues related to disease education, diagnosis, treatment access, affordability, and equity. By actively listening to patients, their families, and caregivers, as well as healthcare providers and payers, we work to improve the patient journey every day.
