Sustainability Performance Reports

In 2016, we set an ambitious goal to reduce our environmental impact by committing to a 20% reduction by 2020 (our 20/20 Challenge). In 2016, Allergan continued the journey to improve performance on this measure and being a more sustainable company, including by:

  • Implementing our Social Contract with Patients that improves access to safe, high-quality medicines
  • Reducing absolute greenhouse gas emission from our manufacturing/R&D operations by 11%
  • Reducing our energy intensity from our manufacturing/R&D operations by more than 10%
  • Recycling more than 75% of our waste
  • Increasing our employee engagement on health and safety issues, as measured by our Good Observation rate, by 30%
  • Reducing our occupational injury incident rate by more than 30%
Allergan has been recognized for these efforts, including receiving the ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence award from the Environmental Protection Agency and being named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index & Corporate Knights’ Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World.
