Leaving a lighter footprint
Through our commitment to the global movement for a healthier planet, we've implement daily actions at our manufacturing sites in Sanofi Consumer Healthcare:
We aim to have achieved a 70% reduction in CO2e emissions by 2025, across Scopes 1 and 2. Compared to our 2019 baseline and as of 2022, we have achieved a 41% reduction+. Also in 2025, we aim to have 100% of our electricity sourced from renewable sources, and have already reached 78%.+
We are working hard to reduce waste and increase circularity across manufacturing sites. By 2025 we aim to achieve zero waste to landfill and have a material recovery rate of 90%. At present, 7 out of 13 sites* have already achieved zero waste to landfill.
Preserving our planet's natural resources is key, and as of 2022 all manufacturing sites have adopted specific programs targeting pharmaceutical residues in water supplies, and those located in sensitive natural areas will simultaneously develop targeted biodiversity management plans by 2030. We also aim to reduce our water withdrawals by 20% by this time.
*Based on internal data by Sanofi Consumer Healthcare manufacturing sites on percentage of discards sent to landfill. Excludes high-temperature incineration and compliant disposal of non-incinerable waste.

We're on a journey toward more sustainable packaging for our products. By 2025, our carton boxes will be solely manufactured using FSC or SFI certified materials that follow practices to ensure our forests are protected.
