Our Mission is our purpose

We set science in motion to create a better world, helping to create life-changing therapies that improve patient outcomes across the globe.

Through our mission we achieve our commitment to innovation, diversity and inclusion, and sustainability. Our social and corporate responsibility is reflected in our people, the products we create, the transformative services we provide, and the integrity with which we serve our shareholders, business partners, suppliers, customers, and communities.

Achieving Our Purpose:

To further our commitment to creating a better world for all our stakeholders, we are aligning our Corporate Social Responsibility pillars with a number of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These SDGs will help focus our efforts on areas where Avantor can create a positive impact on our business and our stakeholders.

Avantor has introduced a set of metrics to tangibly measure our steps towards achieving our purpose and fulfilling our values. We intend to continue to track and publish these metrics, as well as other financial, environmental and social metrics, every year to assess the impact of our business and operations on our shareholders, customers, and communities.
