Gilead operates in many communities around the world. We believe our impact should be positive, enriching and sustainable. Our goal is to promote efforts that minimize our effect on climate change and lower our consumption of natural resources. We seek to increase renewable energy use and recycling efforts, lessen our contribution to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and improve chemistry practices. Sustainability is core to how we are working to build a better world with people, partners and communities around the globe.
Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions
To make good on our commitment to sustainability, Gilead has joined the world’s leading companies to reduce GHG emissions. Climate change presents a material threat to human health and environments worldwide. Gilead is committed to mitigating our impact by doing our part to improve our environmental practices though conservation and pollution prevention. This includes reaching our Science Based Target to reduce absolute scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 46% by 2030 from a 2019 base year, and also to reduce absolute scope 3 GHG emissions 15% over the same timeframe.
A Workplace for Tomorrow
When Gilead set out to design a new research building, the company had big aspirations. The aim was to not just deliver a facility that achieved the scientific ambitions of today but to build a space that would encourage researchers to focus on their scientific visions of tomorrow.
