Corporate Governance

Three long established core values guide Lilly in all that we do:

  • Integrity - We conduct our business consistent with all applicable laws and are honest in our dealings with customers, employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers, competitors, and the community.
  • Excellence - We pursue pharmaceutical innovation, provide high quality products, and strive to deliver superior business results. We continually search for new ways to improve everything we do.
  • Respect for People - We maintain an environment built on mutual respect, openness, and individual integrity. Respect for people includes our concern for all people who touch or are touched by our company: customers, employees, shareholders, partners, suppliers and communities.

Building on these values, Lilly embraces the principles of good corporate governance, implemented through strong, independent, and diverse membership on our board of directors.

Over the years, we have consistently sought to implement best governance practices. In today's climate of concern over corporate accountability, it is more important than ever that we continually earn investor confidence. We will do this by remaining a leader in good corporate governance and providing clear, consistent, and truthful communication about our performance.
