Preservation of natural resources represents one of our key commitments. Our Sustainability 2010 Goals, initiated in 2000, have resulted in significant progress in reducing Bristol-Myers Squibb’s environmental impacts worldwide. Since then, the company has met and surpassed the majority of its goals, including a 40 percent reduction in energy use, normalized to sales. As Bristol-Myers Squibb focuses on the future, our next generation of sustainability goals (through 2015), intensifies our commitment to sustainable, ethical and compliant global business practices.
