Sustainability

At Bristol-Myers Squibb, sustainability means conducting our business to help patients prevail over serious diseases in a manner that contributes to economic growth, social responsibility and a healthy environment now and in the future.

Bristol-Myers Squibb has been setting sustainability objectives and reporting on results since the 1990s, when we began reporting on environmental objectives.  This focus was broadened in 2000, with the launch of our Sustainability 2010 Goals, to include social issues.  In 2009 we introduced our Sustainability 2015 Goals, which addressed a fresh set of issues and targets, while continuing to focus on a number of key areas.

Find out about our current Sustainability 2020 Goals which align with the company’s strategy and with programs underway across the organisation focused on innovation in support of research and development, patient access, our employees, our supply chain and the environment. 

We are proud of our accomplishments and, at the same time, mindful that we must continue to improve if we are to fulfill our Mission and Commitment.

Bristol-Myers Squibb Australia is a member of the Australian Packaging Covenant. This Covenant outlines commitment by governments and industry to the sustainable design, use and recovery of packaging.

The Covenant is a voluntary initiative by Government and Industry to reduce the environmental effects of packaging on the environment. It is designed to minimise the environmental impacts arising from the disposal of used packaging, conserve resources through better design and production processes and facilitate the re-use and recycling of used packaging materials.
