We’re accelerating outcomes to improve lives

Every moment matters when it comes to life-changing care. Using our leadership and expertise, we’re bringing together an end-to-end approach to pharmaceutical care to help our partners go faster in R&D, expand reach into new markets, and transform the patient experience.

Expanding our impact on access, innovation, and outcomes

At Cencora, delivering solutions that help change patients' lives for the better is just the beginning of how we make a difference in the world. We're also committed to advancing our environmental, social, and governance (ESG) initiatives to create healthier futures. We make a global impact in these areas by empowering our purpose-driven team members, developing resilient and sustainable operations, and creating healthy communities for all.

We help our communities recover, grow, and thrive

Beyond our solutions offerings, we make healthcare more accessible to those who need it most through a wide range of philanthropic and volunteer activities. With the help of the Cencora Impact Foundation and our team members giving back in meaningful ways, we’re able to focus our attention on underserved communities and respond quickly in crisis situations.

Improving communities by partnering with small and diverse businesses

Through our supplier diversity program, we’ve supported more than 1,500 companies certified as small business enterprises, small businesses in underutilized areas, and companies where the ownership is mainly minorities, women, people with disabilities, veterans, or LGBTQ+. These businesses are the backbone of job creation and economy stimulation in underserved areas, and we’re eagerly growing our program to help as many communities as we can.

We're prioritizing protecting the environment

Making a big impact on human and animal health requires an even bigger commitment to environmentally sustainable operations. The health of our planet is equally important, so we continually implement best practices across all areas of our business in energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emissions management, waste management, and responsible packaging to ensure the only mark we leave behind is positive change.

Greenhouse gas emissions reduction

Cencora is committed to a science-based target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 54.6% by FY32 and engage our suppliers. Cencora completed 11 lighting retrofit projects in FY22 at our facilities and began a global renewable energy assessment to evaluate options to expand our renewable energy portfolio.

Waste management, recycling, and sustainable packaging

Cencora advanced its Getting Drastic with Plastic campaign, removing more than 230 metric tons of single-use plastic secondary packaging, since starting the campaign in 2019. Cencora also diverted 52,000 pounds of plastic stock bottles through American Health Packaging's recycling initiative.

Our team members are at the center of everything we do

None of this would be possible without our 46,000+ purpose-driven team members and their tireless efforts to create healthier futures. We do everything we can to provide them with world-class workplaces, equitable compensation, and a range of benefits for individualized physical and mental well-being. We’re also focused on fostering an inclusive culture that ensures everyone’s voice is heard and each individual feels a sense of belonging. The more our people flourish, the more empowered they are to improve the lives of millions of others.
