In a time of global uncertainty, ambitious climate action is as urgent as ever. Together with over 150 global corporations and backed by global NGOs, Lundbeck is reaffirming its science-based commitments to achieving zero-carbon economy and calling on governments to match this ambition.
Since 2006 Lundbeck has been working strategically to reduce our carbon footprint and other emissions. Lundbeck works with four overall categories of initiatives to reduce emissions and energy consumption: Optimization of existing buildings, plants and installations, investing in new low-energy machines and plants, shifts from conventional fuel to bio-fuel and general optimization reducing office spaces and buildings in use. Lundbeck is already recognized as a climate A-list company, and in addition to its own direct initiatives, Lundbeck seeks to participate in climate partnerships. To this end, Lundbeck joined the global movement “Business Ambition for 1.5°C” of companies aligning their business actions with the Paris Agreement. Further, Lundbeck is part of the Danish government’s Climate Panel for Life Science and Biotech to help provide industry-wide climate recommendations.
But the work does not stop here. Keeping the global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees will require ambition, creative thinking, and prioritization.
Human health depends on planetary health. We can and must protect both.
