Corporate Social Responsibility
True to its commitment to contribute to the improvement of public health worldwide, bioMérieux has a corporate sponsorship policy closely tied to its core activities. In 2007, the company devoted 2.7 million euros to corporate sponsorship.
bioMérieux supports the actions of the Mérieux Foundation, which has public interest status, and the Christophe and Rodolphe Mérieux Foundation, under the aegis of the Institut de France. Our company also works with different international organizations such as the Bill Clinton Foundation, the United Nations, the World Bank and the European Commission by supporting a variety of initiatives (financing of research projects and international programs, etc.). Through these different partnerships, bioMérieux hopes to make its know-how available for a medicine accessible to the world.
bioMérieux also supports cultural initiatives, particularly in the Rhône Alpes region in France, where the company is headquartered. It has been a sponsor of the Baroque Music Festival of Lyon and the Chaise Dieu annual music festival (France) for many years.
