We consider and respect Government Officials as important stakeholders
Government officials play an important role in society, e.g. by establishing and maintaining the necessary conditions and institutions for economic stability, social cohesion and environmental protection as well as for providing access to healthcare for their citizens.
Roche is convinced that a proactive, honest, transparent and responsible dialogue and engagement between government officials and the private sector is a fundamental aspect of good public governance. All employees working with government officials are expected to follow our Good Practice Guidelines on Working with Government Officials, understand the specific additional limitations that may apply and act in an appropriate ethical and professional manner.
Any support of a political party, especially financial contributions, must be in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
