Environmental challenges have never been more critical or more urgent
than they are today.
Growing consumption, industrialisation and urbanisation threaten not only the sustainability of the environment we live in, but also the health of people around the world.
Every year we use billions of litres of water and large amounts of energy and resources to manufacture medicines. Our CO2 emissions continue to rise, especially in transportation.
We distribute hundreds of millions of vials and injection pens to people who need them – and demand for our life-saving treatments is growing. Our products are made of high-quality materials, but after use, most of them end up in landfill.
This puts us at the frontline of some of the biggest environmental issues: climate change, water and resource scarcity, pollution and plastic waste.
To lead the way, and be at the forefront of change, we have taken a bold and broad, company-wide approach to solving environmental issues.
We have adopted a new environmental strategy with the aspiration to have zero environmental impact.
We focus on our use of electricity, how we design our products and our suppliers.
Being a part of a bigger movement is the only way we will achieve zero environmental impact.
