At Gilead, we work to ensure the impact we have on our communities is positive, enriching and sustainable. This is why, in the communities around the world in which we operate, we are always introducing new ways to minimize our impact on climate change and reduce our consumption of natural resources — like increasing the amount of renewable energy we use, reducing our water consumption, increasing our recycling efforts and improving our chemistry practices. Operating sustainably and making a positive difference for our patients is our mission and our mindset, and it will always be one of our highest priorities.
To make good on our mission, Gilead Sciences has joined forces with the world’s leading companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The greenhouse effect 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 through conservation and pollution prevention, which includes reaching our target goal to reduce our global Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 25% by 2025, compared to our 2016 emissions.
