We at Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals believe in playing an active role as socially responsible community partners. This means growing our business by setting corporate responsibility and sustainability goals for the future, built upon industry-leading initiatives.
Our commitment to sustainability is exemplified by our energy goal to reduce kilowatt-per-hour energy consumption by 20 percent by the end of the 2018 fiscal year. Since the start of the program, we have exceeded all targets by investing more than $26 million in capital toward energy and waste reduction projects. Examples of our efforts include:
- Heating and cooling upgrades which, along with innovative controls and heat-recovery systems, have generated significant savings at the U.S. headquarters
- The elimination of a coal-fired boiler at one of our major facilities, improving energy efficiency and reducing waste generation and greenhouse gas emissions
- Lighting upgrades at most locations
- Exceeding a target of reducing total waste by 20 percent, compared to baseline 2010
We are committed to designing products and processes that minimize our environmental impact while meeting the needs of our customers. Our product development process spans from extraction of raw materials to final disposition. We are dedicated to understanding product life cycles and their impact.
