Action & Accountability

As a company focused on improving the health of patients everywhere, impact has always been central to Teva. This comes to life through our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) strategy, which guides us in minimizing our impact on the planet, advancing health and equity and dedicating ourselves to quality, ethics and transparency.

In 2021, we took action by advancing our ESG efforts and strengthening the connection between ESG and our business—holding ourselves accountable to future progress.
