Walgreens Boots Alliance was formed on 31 December 2014 following the combination of Walgreen Co. and Alliance Boots GmbH. Walgreens Boots Alliance fiscal year end is 31 August consistent with the year end of Walgreen Co. The combination on 31 December 2014 means, except where otherwise indicated, the examples of CSR activity for Alliance Boots are for the eight-month period from 1 January 2015 to 31 August 2015.
Prior to the creation of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Alliance Boots published Corporate Social Responsibility data. During fiscal 2015, we commenced a process to capture CSR data for the Retail Pharmacy USA Division.
