We engage in philanthropic giving as part of our sustainability efforts
Roche has a rich history not only in healthcare innovation, but also in philanthropic giving.
Roche’s approach to philanthropic donations and non-commercial sponsorships mirrors our sustainable business model and innovation culture.
When assessing projects, we focus on the potential impact rather than on cost. Impact is the measure of value and success.
Philanthropic donations are decided by local management of the affiliate concerned. However, donations involving more than one country are handled by Roche’s Corporate Donations and Philanthropy group.
Decisions are made in line with the Roche Policy on Philanthropic Donations and non-commercial Sponsorship.
Roche employees support philanthropic initiatives, e.g. the annual Roche Children’s Walk, which brings together employees in all time zones to raise money to support vulnerable children across the globe.
As part of its commitment to society, Roche supports its employees who personally engage in community activities, such as the Roche Secondment program that enables Roche employees to support non-governmental organisations with their knowledge on healthcare-related topics.
