Environmental Targets

Climate Change and Energy Saving
  • – Mid-term: Reduce Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions intensity (tonnes/RMB10,000) by 50% by 2030 (base year 2020)
Water Management
  • – Reduce water consumption intensity by 18% by 2025 from the base year 2019
  • – Implement Water Excellence Stewardship (WES)* on our priority sites by 2027
Climate Change and Energy Saving
  • – Long-term: Achieve net-zero emissions from overall operations by 2050
Waste Management
  • – Reduce waste intensity, including hazardous and non-hazardous waste by 10% (tonnes/RMB10,000) by 2027 from the base year 2022

Climate Change and
Energy Saving

WuXi Biologics stands firmly committed to decreasing our energy use and reducing emissions. In addition, we shoulder the responsibility to minimize our carbon footprint and build business resilience against climate change.

 

In June 2023, the company committed to Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), achieving a new milestone in its net-zero journey.

 

  • Governance

    Governance of climate-related issues is incorporated into our comprehensive ESG structure to ensure that climate change is considered equally with other material ESG issues in our strategy-making process.

     

  • Strategy

    The Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) guides our understanding of risks and opportunities that may arise from climate change, and we developed our Climate Change Policy accordingly.

     

  • Risk Management

    We are working both internally and externally to minimize and mitigate identified material climate risks. The process for identifying, assessing, and managing climate-related risks are essential elements of our current risk management system, which is aligned with the COSO Enterprise Risk Management Framework – Aligning with Strategy and Performance.
