The events of the last 18 months have resulted in the greatest public health challenge of our generation, but the impact of the #ClimateEmergency has the potential to be greater still, damaging our planet irreversibly. We know the climate crisis is impacting human health – from air pollution to flooding, extreme heat to drought – and we are seeing a rise in chronic conditions such as heart disease, lung cancer, and respiratory illnesses. At AstraZeneca, we are on track to achieving our ambition of zero carbon emissions from our global operations by 2025 and ensuring our value chain is carbon negative by 2030. We’ve already reduced our greenhouse gas emissions by 60% since 2015. This year, with G7, G20, and COP26, there is a unique opportunity to achieve greater global collaboration. 2021 is a critical year and we are at a critical point. We have an opportunity to ‘reset’ to create a more sustainable world - together.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AstraZeneca (Coimbatore) in Aug 2020


    It was comprised of 3 rounds. 1st round was a MCQ round. It had questions from OOPS concepts, Java, Data structures and some questions from Logical reasoning. 2nd round was a technical HR. Questions were based on our resume. You have to be familiar in the concepts in your course certifications you have mentioned too. And in the final round also there were some questions from resume and general HR questions.
