Lundbeck has achieved the highest recognition for its climate efforts by being listed on CDP's 2016 Climate A List. Companies all over the world have been reviewed, and only nine percent of the companies have made a big enough climate effort to get on the list.
“We are very proud that we have been placed on CDP's 2016 Climate A List. Since 2006, Lundbeck has reduced CO2 emissions by more than 50 percent, and we are pleased with this recognition of our efforts”, Executive Vice President, Supply Operations & Engineering, Lars Bang comments.
One of the reasons for Lundbeck’s inclusion on CDP’s 2016 Climate A List is that Lundbeck as one of the first companies in the world has set so called “Science Based Target” for its reductions of CO2-emissions. “Science Based Targets” is the new principle for working with emission reductions recommend by UN Global Compact, The World Wildlife Fund for Nature, World Resources Institute and CDP as the way companies should work if the world community shall reach the UN Climate Change Conference COP-21 goal of keeping global warming below two degrees until the year 2100.
Benefits for both environment and business
Lundbeck has carried through energy conserving activities for a number of years. On many of Lundbeck’s sites the company's energy consumption has been optimized and the mission is to always use the lowest possible amount of energy.
“In less than 10 years, Lundbeck has reduced the annual energy consumption cost with a two digit million DDK amount through green energy solutions. It is many small changes that create the significant accumulated saving. At Lundbeck we are committed to green initiatives benefiting the environment and Lundbeck's business”, Executive Vice President, Supply Operations & Engineering, Lars Bang comments.
