Commitment to environmental sustainability

Roche’s progressive approach to environmental protection and management reflects our strong commitment to risk mitigation and is intrinsic to our business.

We measure our impact on the environment using the eco-balance metric and strive to continuously lower it by consuming less energy, reducing emissions to air, using less water, and producing less general and chemical waste.

Antoine helps us improve care for people with MS

Antoine is passionate about helping people better understand multiple sclerosis (MS), a neurological disease affecting 2.9 million people. As a Roche patient expert, he regularly shares details about his life with MS to help us improve our delivery of care for people with MS. His resilience and positivity in the face of setbacks associated with MS are an inspiration for us all – reminding us to prioritise what truly matters in life.

“Living with MS provides a new perspective – I no longer worry about trivial matters. It alters your mindset and behaviour, and I believe it has improved my outlook on life.”

Women’s health achievements

Historically, healthcare has often overlooked women’s unique needs, leading to disparities in research, treatment and access. Roche’s #MyStoryForChange launched in 2023, addresses this by empowering women to share their health stories. The campaign has collected over 630 stories, transforming them into powerful agents of change. These stories illustrate the pressing need for a healthcare system that equitably understands and caters to women’s specific needs.

Freedom to Be

Let’s put health equity at the forefront because every woman, everywhere deserves quality healthcare. By giving women the Freedom to Be, we can change the facts to do better for ourselves, our loved ones and future generations.
