Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Sustainability 2010 Goals have resulted in significant progress in reducing the company’s environmental impacts across its global network of offices and facilities. Bristol-Myers Squibb is viewed as a leading sustainability-driven company, and the success of the company’s Sustainability 2010 Goals have helped contribute to this recognition.
Since announcing the comprehensive goals in 2001, Bristol-Myers Squibb has met and surpassed the majority of its goals. Key achievements include the reduction of total energy use, greenhouse gas emissions and water use by more than 10 percent, the reduction of non-hazardous waste by more than 20 percent, and the reduction of hazardous waste by more than 50 percent.
In two areas, the goals were not met: safety improvement was less than the goal targets and water use reduction in one water stressed country fell short of the goal. Water conservation and safety will continue to be strong areas of focus for the company.
Now, Bristol-Myers Squibb has set the course for the next five years through its next generation of goals. The Sustainability 2015 Goals intensify the company’s commitment to sustainable, ethical and compliant global business practices.
