Environmental sustainability

In October 2018, we launched a Centralized Waste program involving the removal of individual waste containers from offices to promote environmental consciousness and reduce our contribution to landfills.

In November 2020, as a global biopharmaceutical company we announced ambitious new environmental sustainability goals in both climate and nature, aiming to have a net zero impact on climate and a net positive impact on nature by 2030, across our entire value chain – from lab to patient. We’ve set clear and measurable targets to help achieve these goals.
