Our Sustainability Strategy

Through our sustainability strategy, we mitigate business risks, reduce negative impacts, and address societal challenges where possible. We remain committed to UN Global Compact Principles, and contribute to seven of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

UN Global Compact

Lundbeck became a signatory to the UN Global Compact in 2009. We continue to promote initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to the 10 principles on human and labour rights, environment protection and anti-corruption.


Executive Management assesses Lundbeck’s business risks and opportunities and establishes our sustainability targets as communicated in our annual report.


We release an annual sustainability report describing in detail our sustainability performance and targets. For over a decade, we have reported on our sustainability efforts, challenges and contributions to our business, stakeholders and the societies we operate within.

SDGs that Lundbeck supports

Sustainable Development Goals

In 2020, we based the key aspects of our sustainability strategy on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We found we have a significant impact on seven of the 17 Goals:


  • Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being
  • Goal 5: Gender Equality
  • Goal 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities
  • Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
  • Goal 13: Climate Action
  • Goal 16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions

Key examples are Goal 3 that is closely linked to our corporate purpose and dedication to restore brain health and Goal 13 that drives our efforts to prepare for a zero emissions future. 


We will use our influence and act to promote Goals 5, 8, 10, 12 and 16. Across our sustainability actions, we are seeking partnerships with others to enable change and maximize impact (Goal 17).
