Removing Barriers that Limit Equitable Access to Healthcare

Amgen’s latest ESG report tracks the Company’s progress across four categories: Healthy People: We focus on removing barriers that limit equitable access to healthcare so that people can live their healthiest lives.  In 2021, for example, the Amgen Safety Net Foundation1 provided $2.2 billion2 of the Company’s medicines, at no cost, to uninsured or underinsured patients in the U.S.Healthy Society: We work toward a more just society for our employees and the people we serve. In 2021, no-cost science education programs funded by the Amgen Foundation reached more than 27 million students and educators globally, inspiring the next generation of innovators and helping to level the playing field for those who traditionally have lacked access to world-class science education.Healthy Planet: We prioritize sustainability and aim to minimize our environmental impact to preserve natural resources for generations to come.  Amgen made continued progress last year toward its goal of achieving carbon neutrality in our operations by 20273. A Healthy Amgen: We hold ourselves to high standards in our operations – working to ensure our actions and culture reflect Amgen values.  In 2021, Amgen added an ESG goal to the Company’s goals for our annual incentive plans to focus our entire Company on activities supporting achievement of our 2027 environmental sustainability targets and to strengthen and improve the Company’s diversity, inclusion, and belonging efforts.  To further our progress, Amgen has included an ESG goal again for 2022.
