The Biogen Idec Corporate Sustainability Council (CSC) is composed of a cross-functional group of executives who are responsible for setting the sustainability vision and strategy for the organization. The CSC reports to the company’s executive management team and is chaired by our CEO, George A. Scangos.
The CSC's strategy is guided by our Sustainability Policy, which was adopted in 2011 and lays out our commitment to operating in a manner that reduces our environmental impact, improves social conditions and promotes economic prosperity. The policy also requires the company to develop a long-term corporate citizenship strategy, including goals, objectives and targets, and an annual report on our progress.
Although the CSC provides overall strategic guidance for our corporate citizenship efforts, various Biogen Idec teams manage our individual corporate citizenship initiatives and champion improvements among employees and other stakeholders.
In early 2012, the CSC reported our environmental sustainability progress and performance to the company’s Board of Directors. Moving forward, we intend to report to the board on an annual basis.
