As a global biopharmaceutical company, our greatest contribution to society is making medicines that help people live longer, healthier, more active lives. This is the core of what we do. But our company vision – to improve global health in the 21st century – demands that we do even more. It call us to continue along our company’s distinguished path of giving back and lifting up in new and ever-better ways.
At Lilly, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) aligns business operations with social values: integrating the interest of all stakeholders into the company policies and actions. CSR focuses on the social, environmental and financial success of a company with the overarching goal of positively impacting the society, while achieving business success. It reinforces our commitment to operating ethically and fairly and with respect for the needs of local communities and of society at large.
The reach of our responsibility programs is global. Yet right at the heart of Lilly is a commitment to invest in the local communities in which we operate.
- Day of Service: Each October, about 20,000 Lilly employees spend a day out of the office, helping local communities around the world. Since the program launched in 2008, employees have given nearly 625,000 hours through Global Day of service initiatives, making it one of the largest single day volunteer programs in the world. Lilly Israel has joined the program since it started and has been fully engaged in different activities.

Lilly Israel has for many years provided funding to organizations in the form of independent grants in response to unsolicited request for supporting medical education, patient awareness, and other worthy activities that we believe will increase healthcare knowledge and performance, resulting in better patient care and proactive charitable contributions to help alleviate conditions caused by natural disaster or humanitarian or health emergency.
