Energy Use and Emissions

We’re dedicated to reducing the amount of energy we use to both save money and lower our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Like any manufacturer with multiple locations, Biogen Idec uses a good deal of energy to power our processes, cool and light our facilities and run our computers and other technologies. Through more efficient technologies, employee-driven initiatives and the purchase of renewable energy credits, we’re able to more strategically manage our emissions and energy use.

For details on our energy and emissions reduction initiatives and performance, please see our 2012 Corporate Citizenship Report and Performance Data.
