As a science-based company, we believe that supporting environmental stewardship efforts are critical for a healthy planet. We believe that the health of our planet has an impact on the health and well-being of people everywhere, and that our actions have the potential to affect people and the environment not just today, but well into the future.
Celgene is a growing company with increasing global demand for our innovative therapies and a robust development pipeline. Given our respect for our environment, it’s critical that we grow responsibly and with the goal of long-term sustainability. We must employ sound decision-making that reflects our values, and seek to mitigate our operational impacts on the environment. To advance our long-term sustainability approach, we seek opportunities to minimize our global carbon footprint, develop programs that reduce waste, implement water and energy conservation practices, and maintain our compliance with water quality and environmental regulations.
In early 2016, Celgene’s Sustainability Committee identified four actionable and measurable environmental goals that are of material importance to Celgene and for which new 2020 improvement targets were set: greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, electricity sourcing, water withdrawal, and waste generation.
Celgene’s environmental management approach incorporates best practices and programs related to energy, water, waste, transportation, and supply chain operations within our company.
