To ensure we can continue to deliver high quality products to patients and consumers in the future, we must protect the natural resources we need to make them today.
We have set a new environmental target to reduce our environmental impact by one quarter by 2030. Within this, we aim to*:
|By 2025||By 2030|
|Reduce our operational carbon emissions (Scope 1 and 2)||15%||20%|
|Reduce our value chain carbon emissions (Scope 3) per £ billion revenue||-||25%|
|Source electricity from renewable sources||45%||60%|
|Reduce our total water use at each high-risk site||20%||30%|
|Waste repurposed for beneficial use||80%||100%|
GSK is also making a contribution to environmental challenges by sharing knowledge and resources through our participation in the UN Caring for Climate Initiative and the UN CEO Water Mandate, a business-led movement to advance water stewardship and sanitation.
