A Letter from Hervé
Dear Fellow Stakeholders,
We are proud to have formalized our Global Responsibility initiative. The first phase of this project has been to improve our public disclosure of ongoing environmental, social and governance (ESG) items. In this section of our website, I invite you to read about our ongoing activities in the following five key areas, each of which support Incyte’s sustainable, long-term growth in important ways.
PATIENTS: Incyte was founded on a commitment to finding solutions for patients in need. We support patients in the following areas: Access to Medicine; Patient Education & Awareness; R&D Excellence; and Patient Safety.
TEAM: Scientific breakthroughs are only made possible by attracting and retaining a motivated and talented team. We appreciate, celebrate and thrive on one another’s differences and strengths.
ENVIRONMENT: As an innovative company, we aim to use advances in technology to minimize our environmental footprint. In 2019, we launched Greencyte, a cross-functional and global team dedicated to seeking ways to minimize Incyte’s environmental impact.
COMMUNITY: We strive to give back to the communities in which we live and work. Our Incyte Involved program is comprised of three initiatives: the Incyte Charitable Giving Foundation; the Community Service Program; and the Matching Gifts Program.
SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS PRACTICES: We promote a culture that values integrity as well as ethical and responsible behavior in all aspects of our business, which helps to enable rapid responses to internal and external challenges and opportunities.
With my colleagues on the Executive Leadership team and with oversight from the Board of Directors, we intend to set both near- and longer-term goals in the coming year. This will form the next phase of our Global Responsibility initiative, and we look forward to providing updates on our progress.
With the level of uncertainty created by the global COVID-19 pandemic, the need to operate a sustainable business is more apparent than ever. I continue to be impressed with how smoothly the global Incyte team has adapted to the situation; they have done so with remarkable agility, tenacity and creativity. All Incyte associates that are able to are working remotely, enabled by our IT support and infrastructure, and critical laboratory operations have remained uninterrupted while the health and safety of our employees is safeguarded. We are proud that our preparation paid off as we continue our work amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
We look forward to keeping you updated on our Global Responsibility progress in the coming years.
