Our planet

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 are committed to managing and reducing the environmental impacts of our operations and our products across their lifecycle.

We have set ambitious goals to reduce carbon, water and waste across our value chain – from the sourcing of raw materials and the impacts of our own labs and factories, to the use and disposal of our products by patients and consumers.


Our long term goal is to be carbon-neutral across our value chain by 2050.


To reduce our water impact, we are exploring ways to reduce water use across our value chain.
