Environmental management is an integral part of Sanofi's mission to preserve life.
Today, Sanofi is minimizing the potential environmental impacts of its business through its environmental sustainability program, Planet Mobilization, an approach that covers the entire lifecycle of its products, from the raw materials used in production to their disposal by patients.
By promoting an environmental culture across its sites worldwide, Sanofi strives not only to raise awareness but also to provide employees with the tools to allow them to take into consideration the environment in all decision-making processes.
This also includes working with its suppliers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and overall environmental impact and create more sustainable sourcing of raw materials.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our age and has an enormous impact on people’s lives and health. The rise in the earth’s temperature can lead to extreme weather conditions, food shortages, difficulties in accessing drinking water and increased air pollution, as well as creating favorable conditions for the spread of vector-borne diseases such as malaria, or increasing pollen-related allergies.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that between 2030 and 2050 climate change will cause an estimated 250,000 additional deaths each year. To limit the consequences of global warming, the United Nations presents carbon neutrality as the solution to counterbalance the buildup of GHG in our atmosphere.
