Acting for Environmental Sustainability

We continue to minimize the potential environmental impacts of our business through our environmental sustainability program, Planet Mobilization. Our approach covers the entire lifecycle of our products, from the raw materials used in production to waste disposal. This also includes working with our suppliers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), minimize their overall environmental impact, and more sustainably source their raw materials.

The Sanofi Vietnam team has created an eco garden to foster environmental awareness and employee engagement.

Stepping up our game
in 2021

  • Sanofi was recognized by global environmental non-profit CDP for its actions, leadership and transparency on climate change and water stewardship.

  • We have accelerated our efforts to address climate change and intend to achieve net zero GHG emissions across all operations and the entire value chain by 2050, with an interim target to reach carbon neutrality across all scopes of emissions by 2030. In alignment with the global ambition to stop global temperatures rising by more than 1.5°C, our carbon reduction objectives are validated by the Science Based Target initiative, a partnership between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, the World Resources Institute, and the World Wildlife Fund.

“Taking urgent action on climate and water stewardship is more vital than ever. That's why we're proud to be recognized by CDP in its Climate and Water A lists, for our commitment to climate change and corporate transparency.”

Energize initiative targets global supplier

In 2021, we united with nine global pharmaceutical companies-AstraZeneca, Biogen, GSK, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Novartis, NovoNordisk, Pfizer and Takeda-to help our shared supply chains adopt 100% renewable energy and reduce GHG emissions.

Engaging our employees

In 2021, the Tribe, a 2,000-strong network of employees from all aspects of the business across 77 countries competed for a chance to implement their own ideas to reduce Sanofi’s environmental footprint.

Of the 161 novel ideas pitched to the €3 million Planet Mobilization Fund, three teams-comprising members from France, Belgium, Italy, Vietnam, and Ireland-saw their projects financed and implemented on Sanofi’s sites with the objective of replicating these pilot projects worldwide.
