Stericycle Sets 2045 Goals  

Stericycle, Inc., a regulated medical waste management and secure information destruction solutions provider, set a global environmental target to achieve net zero GHG emissions for Scope 1 and 2 in the United Kingdom by 2045 and globally by 2050.

The company’s employees also drove 2.3 million fewer miles in North America during the first half of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. This resulted in a reduction of 3,438 metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalent emissions through routing efficiencies.

Stericycle also launched its re-engineered one-gallon SafeDrop™ Sharps Mail Back and one-gallon CsRx® Controlled Substance Wastage containers in 2023, which use 40% less plastic compared to Stericycle's prior containers, lowering CO2 emissions associated with the manufacturing process.

Details were published in its 2023 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report, which highlights the company's progress in prioritizing safety and sustainability while advancing its strategic Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives. 

"Every day, our team members live out our mission of protecting health and well-being in a safe, responsible and sustainable way, and I'm very proud of our organization's commitment to set our first global ESG targets that will help guide our journey over the coming years," said Cindy J. Miller, president and chief executive officer at Stericycle, in a statement. "We will continue to be strategic in our approach to corporate social responsibility by prioritizing data-based solutions, accuracy and transparency to make a real and valuable impact on the world."

Stericycle strengthened its corporate governance practices by launching its global ESG Steering Committee, a cross-functional group of global leaders who collaborate to ensure effective alignment and accountability for ESG strategic initiatives. They work closely with the company's environmental justice (EJ) task force to better understand the communities where Stericycle operates.
