We are aiming to build a world that is healthier, a world that is better for everyone. This is why we interact with many other bodies and institutions which, like BIAL, want to achieve the sustained development of the planet and the construction of a fairer and more responsible society.
We are a member of the Global Compact. This is an international initiative to promote the sustainable progress of the world economy, uniting companies, governments and civil society. We are also a signatory to "Caring for Climate", a declaration by the member firms of the Global Compact which tries to find solutions for the climate problems afflicting the world.
BIAL is also member of EPIS - Businessmen for Social Inclusion and of ELO – Portuguese Association for Economic Development and Cooperation.
We are also actively engaged in supporting a number of humanitarian and social causes. We cooperate with a range of institutions on a yearly basis - hospitals, schools, universities, medical groups and patients' associations - which work to educate, raise awareness in, develop, and foster the wellbeing of society in general.
