Gilead operates in many communities around the world. We believe our impact should be positive, enriching and sustainable. Our goal is to promote efforts that minimise our effect on climate change and lower our consumption of natural resources. We seek to increase renewable energy use and recycling efforts, lessen our contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and manufacture our medicines through the use of green chemistry practices, whenever possible. Sustainability is core to how we are working to build a better world with people, partners and communities around the globe.
To make good on our commitment to sustainability, Gilead has joined the world’s leading companies in pledging to reduce GHG emissions. Climate change presents a material threat to human health and environments worldwide. Gilead is committed to mitigating our impact by doing our part to improve our environmental practices though conservation and pollution prevention. This includes reaching our target goal to reduce our global Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 25% by 2025, compared to our 2016 emissions.
