SWEDISH SUMMARY: Nu har Pfizer Inc:s årsredovisning för 2013 publicerats. Redovisningen innehåller såväl finansiell som icke-finansiell information (bland annat "hållbarhetsinformation"), dvs en redovisning som rör sig i riktningen integrerad rapportering. Läs bland annat om Pfizers koncerngemensamma miljömål inom områdena global uppvärmning, avfall, och vatten.
Pfizer Inc's annual report for 2013 is now accessible on-line. The report contains both financial and non-financial data, i.e. a step towards integrated reporting. On today's blog post I like to guide you to the sustainability information specifically. I think it is an interesting read. You will find, among other things, some discussions on Pfizer's Corporate Environmental Goals:
- 20 % decrease in Green House Gas Emissions by 2020 (as compared to 2012)
- 15 % decrease in Waste Generation by 2020 (as compared to 2012)
- 5 % decrease in Water Use by 2020 (as compared to 2012)
The 2020 public goals are presented like this in the report:
"We constantly assess our business practices and advance those that we believe produce measurable value for society and our business, while minimizing risk to our shareholders. Our strategic approach focuses on reducing energy and water consumption in addition to innovative ways to manage waste. Our “green journey” focuses on three areas key to our business: ENERGY — mitigating climate change and its impacts WASTE — minimizing the environmental impact of our products and processes WATER — managing water resources sustainably For a comprehensive view of our contributions to a sustainable future, see here. Also, by the end of 2015, Pfizer plans to announce targets that it believes have the potential to result in meaningful environmental improvement across our supply chain by the end of 2020."
If you have followed my blog over the years you know that I am proud especially on Pfizer's energy and climate change record. I have used the figure below several times in blog posts showing the reduction in green house gas emissions from 2000 to 2007 (roughly 20% in aboslute numbers),
and then another 20% decrease between 2007 and 2012 (which we reached already by 2011). And now we strive to cut by another 20%. That's something which makes me proud of the company I am working for!
