Materials and Waste

We take managing the byproducts of developing our therapies just as seriously as creating the therapies themselves.

To help minimize our waste stream, we continue to identify new ways in which to divert from landfills all materials and waste associated with our operations. We’re pleased to report that in March 2012 we achieved zero waste-to-landfill through a suite of projects that avoid, recycle and compost our waste or turn it into energy. Our goal is to maintain this status going forward.

For details on our materials use and waste reduction initiatives and performance, please see our 2013 Corporate Citizenship Report and Performance Data.
