Ethical Business

For more than 135 years, we have approached our company’s business with a deep sense of responsibility to those we serve—patients, physicians and other health care providers, shareholders, suppliers, business partners, employees, and the communities in which we operate. Our actions are grounded in our core company values of integrity, excellence, and respect for people.

As a leading pharmaceutical company, we look for answers to some of the world’s most urgent medical needs.  We discover and develop products through rigorous testing and in accordance with the highest scientific and ethical standards.  We strive to create products that fulfill the clinical promise of their Lilly label.

At Lilly, how we do business is as important as what we do. We strive to be a leader in corporate responsibility. We demonstrate our values through responsible business practices that reflect our commitments to strong governance principles; transparency; patient, customer, and employee privacy; ethical product promotion; and stakeholder engagement. Our participation in the public policy process also demonstrates our values and affects how we do business. Read more.
