Biogen strives to minimize operational waste. We identify new ways of diverting materials and waste from landfills through projects that avoid generating waste altogether, recycle and compost waste or turn it into energy. In 2012, we achieved zero waste-to-landfill status. We’ve continued to maintain zero waste-to-landfill status ever since and have committed to doing so as part of our 2020 environmental goals.

For details on our materials use and waste reduction initiatives and performance, please see our 2013 Corporate Citizenship Report and Performance Data.
