Becoming an environmentally sustainable business
We strive to make efficient use of natural resources and to minimize the environmental impact of our activities and products
Our environmental efforts
We take our responsibility to protect the environment seriously – and we have already accomplished a lot. While Novartis Group sales have more than doubled in 15 years, our consumption of energy and water has increased at a much slower pace and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have been reduced. Our vision on environmental sustainability is underpinned by ambitious targets in four areas: energy and climate, water and micro-pollutants, materials and waste, and environmental sustainability management.
