Our Approach to Corporate Responsibility

Today, being a leader in any industry requires more than strong business performance; it demands purpose, the commitment to serve the needs of a broad range of stakeholders, and the desire to utilize our strengths for a greater good to bring about positive change in the communities where we live and work.

At McKesson, everything we do is centered around this philosophy. Our Corporate Responsibility Report is a testament to our unwavering commitment to live our values in support of our customers, our communities and each other — and to drive social and environmental action to support the health of our economy and our planet for generations to come.

Investing in our employees

We aim to be an employer of choice and maintain an inclusive environment, and are committed to fostering equal opportunity, pay equity, inclusion and diversity through processes that drive equitable pay decisions and eliminate unexplained pay inequities.

Delivering quality products

Our ICARE shared principles are the cultural foundation of our Company and we work hard to deliver medical and pharmaceutical products to our customers and the patients they serve. We also work with private-label suppliers across the globe who must agree to McKesson Sustainable Supply Chain Principles, which cover compliance with appropriate laws along with adherence to strict policies on protecting workers, preparing for emergencies, identifying and managing environmental risk, and protecting the environment.

Supporting healthy communities

We work to create healthier communities through access to care, and by giving back — both with our money and with our time. To further our mission, we provide opportunities that encourage and support employee volunteering and giving.

Creating value for our shareholders

Integrity and compliance are foundational to our culture and critical to our long-term success. Building on that foundation, we know that good corporate governance advances trust among our shareholders, business partners and employees, promoting transparency in our company and contributing to sustainable growth. Our robust approach to corporate governance helps us drive long-term growth and create shareholder value in all areas, including social practices and environmental stewardship.

Driving environmental stewardship across our enterprise

Communities thrive in a healthier environment. That’s why we’re sharpening our focus on environmental actions, including energy efficiency programs, renewable electricity use, and transportation efficiency improvements. McKesson also recognizes that climate change is one of the biggest challenges society faces in the 21st century, and it has a direct and significant impact on human health.

Our Corporate Responsibility Report is a deep dive into our corporate responsibility efforts during FY20 (April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020). When examples and actions are outside that timeframe, it is noted in the text. We issue a report each year. Our report covers our commitments and progress in the countries where we operate. That includes our work in the United States, Canada and Europe. Our business in the Netherlands (Brocacef Groep) and our administrative office in Vilnius, Lithuania are not included in the report scope. Some programs described in the employee and community sections do not currently apply to employees in our CoverMyMeds and Rexall businesses, with the exception of the Taking Care of Our Own Fund, which is available to Rexall employees.

We remain committed to improving our ESG performance and increasing our transparency on salient ESG issues. As such, we will map our upcoming report to certain recognized frameworks, including those established by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). This report will be published by December 31, 2021.
