Amgen has a longstanding objective to conduct its operations in an environmentally responsible manner. We have successfully advanced our environmental sustainability program since 2007 while increasing our global production capacity and expanding our presence to approximately 100 countries.

By 2027, we are working to:1

  • Achieve carbon neutrality for Amgen-owned and -operated facilities and operations (Scope 1 and 2).
  • Reduce water consumption by 40% from a 2019 baseline.
  • Reduce waste disposed by 75% from a 2019 baseline.

We recognize that Amgen's impact and our commitment to sustainability extends beyond our own employees and facilities. Our 2027 ambition also includes a Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) Scope 3 supplier engagement target to engage with 73% of our suppliers by spend in key categories to support their adoption of science-based targets. This engagement targets approximately 67% of our Scope 3 carbon emissions (from a 2019 baseline) in accordance with the SBTi validation requirements.

Amgen's Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions targets and Scope 3 supplier engagement target were approved by the SBTi in 2022. 

Program Elements within the Healthy Planet Pillar

Our investment in environmental sustainability has not only reduced our impact on the planet but can also improve efficiency and create value, including by reducing operating costs and increasing resilience.

Our Supplier Sustainability Program is designed to ensure that our suppliers address quality, cost and reliability requirements, business ethics, labor and human rights, and environmental impacts.



  1. Carbon neutrality goal refers to Scope 1 and 2 emissions. Reductions in water and waste take into account only verified reduction projects, do not take into account changes associated with the contraction or expansion of the Company and are measured against a 2019 baseline.
