We will encourage associates across our operations to adopt an environmental sustainability mindset.
We will work to understand how a changing climate will impact people's health and deliver environmentally sustainable medicines.
We will minimize the impact of our actions on the planet and invest in environmental solutions that also protect biodiversity.
Our Strategy and Targets
We aim to drive sustainability through our own operations, as well as those of our suppliers, and we have set ambitious targets to minimize our impacts on climate, waste and water.
Science Based Targets
Novartis is proud to participate in the Science Based Targets initiative, which champions science-based target setting as a powerful way of boosting companies’ competitive advantage in the transition to the low-carbon economy. The initiative is a collaboration between the not-for-profit CDP, United Nations Global Compact (UNGC), World Resources Institute (WRI) and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and is one of the We Mean Business Coalition commitments.
Novartis has committed to set science-based emissions reduction targets across our entire value chain that are consistent with keeping global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Within the scope of this commitment, we have joined Business Ambition for 1.5°C and have also become part of Race to Zero, the UN-backed campaign led by the High-Level Champions for Climate Action.
