We create value by making direct and indirect economic, social, and environmental contributions.
Globally GSK has long been committed to reducing its environmental impact. It was one of the first pharmaceutical companies to set ambitious environment targets in 2010. We are committed to managing and reducing the environmental impacts of our operations and our products across their lifecycle. We look at practices that incorporate sustainability into the core of our business and manufacture products in a responsible manner to protect the resources we need for the future.
Environmental sustainability - Healthy Planet, healthy people
We have implemented an environmental sustainability strategy across the entire value chain – from raw materials to product disposal. As we grow our business to bring innovative medicines to people across the country, environment sustainability continues to be a priority and we remain committed to reducing our environmental impact.
We have set two ambitious new environmental sustainability goals for 2030 - Net zero impact on climate and net positive impact on nature.
As part of our sustainability initiatives, our Nashik manufacturing facility has undertaken various initiatives for energy conservation that have resulted in reduced energy consumption. These include:
- installation of energy metres for all major areas and panels at site, with an energy monitoring system to identify and benchmark area wise energy consumption.
- conversion to biomass for boiler, consumption and controls optimisation for HVAC systems, boiler and water reduction.
- monitoring of noise levels, recycling of waste and monitoring of gaseous emissions from the boiler that have resulted in sustaining a high level of energy efficiency.
- segregation of our waste and partnership with government approved vendors for recycling, wherever appropriate.
As a result of our efforts, our Nashik facility runs on zero discharge basis with respect to water and treated affluent is used for gardening purposes.
