Catalent announced that 97% of its electricity usage across its global network is being procured from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, hydroelectric, and biomass with effect from July 1, 2021. Catalent will purchase renewable energy certificates for all of its sites operating in North America, South America and Europe, as well as the majority of its Asia-based facilities.
Catalent also recently signed a letter of commitment with the Science-Based Target initiative (SBTi), joining a growing list of companies setting actionable, science-based, greenhouse gas emission reduction targets to limit global warming. This commitment will include calculating and reducing direct and indirect emissions as the company continues to evolve and grow.
“As a leader in the growing CDMO industry, we need to demonstrate our shared commitment, sense of urgency, and value in contributing to the responsibility and long-term sustainability of the entire biopharma sector. Sourcing the majority of our electricity from renewable sources will contribute to our overall greenhouse gas reduction efforts, which is a significant milestone towards doing our part and meeting our science-based target commitment, and I could not be prouder of Catalent’s progress over the last several years in terms of our environment, social and governance strategy,” said John Chiminski, Chair and Chief Executive Officer at Catalent.
