Avantor Updates Emission Progress

Avantor, Inc., a global provider of products and services to the life sciences and applied materials industries, reduced its Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions by 9.6% compared to a 2019 baseline. 

This represents progress of more than 50% toward the company's 2025 reduction goal. Details were provided in its 2022 sustainability report highlighting the company's significant progress in innovating for a sustainable future.

The company reduced its GHG emissions by lowering energy consumption (electricity, gas and fuels) and seeking renewable and other lower-impact energy sources, worked to protect the environment by preventing pollution from production and logistics, avoiding or minimizing waste generation and promoting the use of environmentally preferable products and packaging and monitored and managed the environmental impact by tracking energy and water use, waste generation, recycling and other related activities and taking action to reduce the impact.

Avantor also engaged with key stakeholders on important environmental issues and served as a reliable partner for customers and suppliers, including identifying ways that the company’s services and products can reduce environmental impact.

“We are proud of the progress we have made to implement responsible and sustainable business practices as part of our Science for Goodness platform," said Michael Stubblefield, President and CEO of Avantor in a statement. "As a company focused on advancing science to create a better world, we recognize our immense responsibility to invest in sustainability for all our stakeholders. By measuring and reporting our progress against our goals, we demonstrate Avantor's commitment to transparency, accountability and positive impacts to better our environment and society."
