Manufacturing and the environment
In 2017, we continued to focus on our globally managed first-tier suppliers in the API and formulation and packing (F&P) categories, as this is the group of suppliers with which we have a high degree of influence and collaborative opportunity. We work closely with these suppliers to set appropriate environmental standards and targets and to collect environmental performance data.
We capture environmental performance data for over 90% (based on spend) of our global outsourced manufacturing of APIs and F&P suppliers across our established brands.
