Boehringer Ingelheim

We are Boehringer Ingelheim – a different kind of pharmaceutical company.

Family-owned. Purpose-led. Innovation-driven: We serve mankind by improving health for people and animals.

Making new and better medicines for humans and animals is at the heart of what we do. Our mission is to create breakthrough therapies that change lives. Established in 1885, we have always been independent and family-owned, meaning we have the freedom to pursue our purpose – identifying health challenges of the future, and targeting areas of need where we can do the most good.

By working collaboratively, we accelerate the delivery of medical breakthroughs to transform the lives of patients now, and for generations to come.

In the UK we do this through scientific innovation – taking on the biggest challenges in medicine. We invest in sustainable healthcare – planning for the long term alongside the NHS and our partners in the veterinary world. We support digital transformation by partnering with innovators to drive healthcare improvements.

We are committed to tackling the challenge of climate change and are a certified carbon neutral organisation. We serve local and global communities through our social impact programme and we support social entrepreneurs who find healthcare solutions for the most vulnerable.
