Renewable Energy

Our Environmental Approach

Our purpose, to make life better, includes protecting and preserving the world we live in. Making medicines requires the use of valuable resources including energy, water and raw materials. We’re committed to reducing our environmental footprint. To track our progress, we measure and manage energy and water use, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and the generation of waste and wastewater throughout our operations. Lilly manages health, safety and the environment (HSE) under a ​​unified governance structure.
