SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES

BUILD A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

Our approach to building sustainable communities

Our commitment to a better world extends beyond our labs. Making the world healthier through life-transforming medicines goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to a healthy planet. Through our environmental education, economic development and employee-volunteerism efforts, we work within our company and communities to positively improve our collective future.

We also aim to reduce our environmental impact by integrating sustainability into all aspects of our business. We are a global leader in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiatives that prepare students for science careers, and we make investments to support economic development in the areas where we live and work.

Leading in community involvement

As we expand in Ireland, so does our social impact. We support various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) initiatives, volunteerism and other meaningful causes through our Regeneron in the Community programme.

Environmental stewardship

Regeneron and all of our employees aim to facilitate future growth, be good environmental stewards and have a positive impact on our communities. Sustainable practices are integrated into our business strategy and our culture. As we continue developing innovative medicines and growing our team, we remain mindful of our environmental impact and we continuously look at ways where we can reasonably decrease our footprint. With this goal in mind, every individual is held accountable for complying with our environmental strategies.

We have set global environmental targets in four key areas to help inform our choices and actions, all with the aim of reducing our environmental footprint and building sustainable communities as we grow.
