CDP result 2017
For many years, the strategy has yielded a number of tangible results. For instance, we have already reached our long-term target to reduce CO2 emission by 55% in 2020 compared to 2006. By the end of 2017 we had reduced our CO2 emission by 64%. This is made possible by taking an integrated approach where dedicated teams of engineers and maintenance employees challenge habits and conventional thinking in order to identify new ways of reducing energy use.
Lundbeck’s long-term CO2 reduction target is recognized as ‘Science Based’ by the UN Global Compact, the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), World Resources Institute and the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). This level of reduction in the CO2 emission is required for all nations to keep the global warming below two degrees in 2100, which is the official target of the signatories of the Paris Agreement, UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP-21).
For the second year running we were also recognized as world leading by being included in the Carbon Disclosure Projects climate A List.
Lundbeck strives to minimize the number of work-related accidents and are working systematically with root cause analysis and preventive actions. In 2017, we intensified our training to support the safety culture and raise awareness of working safe. We believe this contributed to the observed decrease in accidents per 1,000,000 working hours from 7.3 in 2016 to 5.9 in 2017. We are determined to reduce the number of accidents even further and will continue the training in work related risks and safety culture. We will also enhance our preventive efforts by analysing trends and sharing knowledge across our sites in 2018.
