Teva Releases Innovation and Social Responsibility Highlights

Leading Global Pharmaceutical Company Recaps Latest Milestones, from
Bolstering Digital Healthcare Start-Ups to Creating Tailored Treatments

Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd.
(NYSE and TASE:TEVA) released its Corporate
Social Responsibility Highlights
today. In one year, Teva—the
world’s largest generic medicines maker and recognized leader in
specialty pharmaceuticals—launched more than 315 new generic medicines
to more than 200 million patients, in over 60 countries. Additionally,
Teva is on target to launch over 1000 new generic medicines in 2016 and
nearly 1500 new generic medicines in 2017 as well as 27 new specialty
products by 2019.

“We remain committed to ensuring that our medicines are available and
adapted to serve global and changing healthcare needs,” said Teva
President and CEO Erez
. “The highlights released today demonstrate our evolution
over the last few years as we make healthcare accessible for billions of
people around the world and seek to reduce the burden on national
economies and investing in development to bring new therapeutic options
to patients.”

Teva’s work in decreasing generic prescription drug prices in the U.S.,
saving billions for the UK National Health Service, lowering greenhouse
gas emissions and other recent insights into the company’s social
responsibility and innovation efforts can be found in Innovating
for Better Health: Teva Global Corporate Social Responsibility Highlights

Highlights include:

  • Creating the next generation of health startups. In January
    2015, Teva, in collaboration with Phillips Healthcare, launched Sanara
    . It is the first partnership of its kind in
    Israel. The venture capital incubator committed to investing
    approximately $26 million to support 40-50 early-stage digital
    healthcare and medical device companies in the next eight years
    To date, out of 400 applications, four companies have received
    funding, with two receiving full licensure in the digital health and
    respiratory space.
  • Enhancing patient treatment methods. Teva scientists are
    playing a unique role in developing innovative therapies by
    taking already known molecules and repurposing and transforming them
    for better efficacy, safety and improved patient compliance. Current
    new therapies are in advanced stages of development and include a
    long-lasting, ready-to-use treatment for schizophrenia
  • Personalized
    . Teva’s pharmacogenomics research in Israel is
    working to identify specific genetic modifications among similar
    communities. The potential exists to develop targeted treatments that
    can prevent serious diseases in populations with similar genetic
  • Supporting women in leadership positions around the globe. At
    Teva, 49 percent of total management at all levels, and 35
    percent of executives and senior management
    are women. Research
    from 2015
    on business diversity shows that around the world just
    22 percent of senior roles are held by women, compared to 19 percent
    in 2004.

These milestones align with the announcement of Teva’s Target Zero
vision to achieve zero incidents, zero injuries and zero releases into
the environment. As part of this vision, Teva pledged to reduce energy
consumption by 20 percent and reduce greenhouse gas emissions 15 percent
by 2020. Between 2012 and 2014, Teva cut greenhouse gas emissions by six
percent and reduced water usage by 17 percent in 2014 alone.

Each year, since 2011, Teva has responded to the climate change
information survey by the Carbon
Disclosure Project
, most recently scoring a 96B out of a highest
possible score of 100A.

“These highlights demonstrate Teva’s continued commitment to offer real
value to patients and healthcare systems around the globe,” said Iris
Beck-Codner, Group Executive Vice President, Corporate Marketing
Excellence and Communications. “The report also highlights our sustained
efforts to preserve the environment, as well as our steadfast commitment
to ensure that Teva employees achieve their fullest potential in a
healthy work environment. As a whole, it reflects the progress we’ve
made, our vision for the future and our belief that the global
healthcare industry must play an increasingly integral role in creating
accessible, innovative and sustainable solutions for people everywhere.”
