September 23, 2021 /3BL Media/ - In 2020, Biogen launched its signature Healthy Climate, Healthy Lives™ initiative, a groundbreaking $250 million, 20-year commitment to address the deeply interrelated issues of climate, health, and equity. Biogen is the first Fortune 500 company to commit to becoming fossil fuel free and established new emissions reduction targets in line with the Science Based Targets initiative, consistent with levels required to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.
Today’s progress report details the company’s efforts to go fossil fuel free, including engagement with its employees and suppliers, and ongoing collaborations with renowned institutions to improve health – especially for vulnerable populations most impacted by climate-related events.
