General

(a)
Amgen has included data from 16 facilities covering energy and carbon, water and waste. The facilities represent approximately 88 percent of Amgen's worldwide facility space based on total square feet. Included facilities are in Thousand Oaks, California, U.S.; West Greenwich, Rhode Island, U.S.; Juncos, Puerto Rico, U.S.; Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.; South San Francisco, California, U.S.; Cambridge and Woburn, Massachusetts, U.S.; Burnaby, Canada; Breda, Netherlands; Dun Laoghaire, Ireland; Uxbridge and Cambridge, United Kingdom; São Paulo, Brazil; Yenibosna and Sekerpinar, Turkey; and Tuas, Singapore. This includes leased buildings where we have operational control over building infrastructure, including utilities.

(b)
Measurement and verification of conservation and reduction projects for energy and carbon, water and waste are based on adaptation of the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP). Project measurements are conducted using reasonable means, including direct measurements and scientific estimations as appropriate. Values for conservation and reduction projects represent year-over-year, cumulative and continuing avoidance based on a 2007 baseline, then re-baselined in 2012 to match the next-generation 2020 Target design.

(c)
Immaterial changes to 2007–2018 data may have occurred due to refinements in calculations. All changes have been confirmed through a documented change control process.

Energy

(d)
Direct energy use results from the operation of equipment that is owned or controlled by Amgen at the facilities listed in note (a). Data on the use of natural gas, propane and diesel in boilers, furnaces and HVAC are recorded from utility bills or purchase records. Data on the use of diesel in emergency generators are recorded from purchase records or meter readings and, in some cases, estimated from run-hours. Utility bills recorded in units of volume are converted to energy. Energy from emergency generators recorded as run-hours is estimated using the manufacturer's specified fuel-feed rate for each generator.

(e)
Indirect energy use results from purchased energy in the forms of electricity and steam at the Amgen facilities listed in note (a). Data on the use of electricity and steam are recorded from utility bills.

Carbon

(f)
Scope 1 carbon emissions result from direct energy sources defined in note (d). Additional Scope 1 Carbon emissions from sales fleet, executive air fleet and fugitive emissions from chillers, coolers and HVAC are found in the Other Carbon category in this data summary. Carbon emissions from natural gas sources are calculated using the U.S. EPA's Center for Corporate Climate Leadership Emission Factors for Greenhouse Gas Inventories (9 March 2018) for all U.S. sites; the 2017 B.C. Best Practices Methodology for Quantifying Greenhouse Gas Emissions for Amgen's facility in Burnaby, Canada; and the U.K. Defra's GHG Conversion Factors for Company Reporting (Standard set for 2018) for Amgen's other international facilities. Carbon emissions data from propane and diesel fuel sources are calculated using U.S. EPA's Center for Corporate Climate Leadership Emission Factors for Greenhouse Gas Inventories (9 March 2018). Carbon data from direct energy sources prior to 2011 were calculated using emission factors from the Greenhouse Gas Protocol Cross-Sector Tools-Stationary Combustion-V.1.0 (July 2009). Scope 1 emissions that are not included in this data summary include process-related emissions from cell respiration (carbon as a by-product) and pH adjustments (CO2 injection). Analysis of these sources in 2013 showed that cell respiration and emissions from pH adjustments are negligible (less than 0.1 percent of our total carbon emissions).

(g)
Scope 2 carbon market-based emissions result from indirect energy sources defined in note (e). Carbon emissions from purchased electricity are calculated using emission factors from U.S. EPA eGRID Summary Tables 2016 for all U.S. locations except Amgen's facility in Puerto Rico, which are calculated using The Climate Registry Emission Factors for "U.S. territories (not an eGRID Region)" (May 1, 2018), and Amgen's facility in San Francisco, which are calculated using a supplier specified emission factor. Carbon emissions from purchased electricity for Amgen's facilities in Singapore, Brazil and Turkey are calculated using emission factors from the International Energy Agency's CO2 emissions from fuel combustion 2018. Carbon emissions from purchased electricity for Amgen's facilities in the United Kingdom and Ireland are calculated using supplier specific emissions factors. Carbon emissions from purchased electricity for Amgen's facility in British Columbia, Canada are calculated using regional emission factors. Carbon emissions from purchased electricity for Amgen's Netherlands facility are covered by a renewable energy certificate. Carbon data from purchased steam is calculated using an emission factor provided by the supplier for Amgen's facility in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Carbon data from indirect energy sources prior to 2011 were calculated using emission factors from U.S. EPA eGRID2007 Version 1.1 for U.S. facilities.

Other Carbon

(h)
The Other Carbon category contains additional Scope 1 and Scope 3 carbon emissions that are tracked. Carbon emissions from our executive air fleet and sales fleet are calculated using emission factors from the U.S. EPA's Center for Corporate Climate Leadership Emission Factors for Greenhouse Gas Inventories (9 March 2018). U.S. sales fleet fuel use and mileage data are collected at the pump for Amgen leased vehicles. Carbon emissions generated from miles driven by U.S. Beginning in 2017, sales fleet encompasses our U.S. sales fleet and international fleets. This represents approximately 90 percent of our sales fleet based on distance driven. Carbon emissions from our commercial business travel are calculated by Amgen's travel provider. Carbon emissions from Amgen's material transportation have been provided by the carrier using their own specific methods. Fugitive emissions from process equipment (e.g., refrigerant from refrigeration and HVAC equipment) are calculated using emission factors from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Processes are in place to maintain chillers, coolers and HVAC equipment to prevent unintended emissions.

(i)
Scope 3 carbon emissions are a consequence of the activities of the company but occur from sources not owned or controlled by the company. Scope 3 carbon emissions that are currently tracked include emissions from Amgen's commercial business travel (air and rail), upstream material transportation, staff commuting, fuel-related activities and disposal of waste.

(j)
Commercial business travel was not tracked in 2007 or 2008. Material transportation was not tracked from 2007 to 2011. The accuracy of carbon emissions tracking from chillers, coolers, and HVAC improved in 2013 and will now be reported going forward.

Water

(k)
Immaterial discrepancy between values for total water fate and total water withdrawal is due to rounding and compilation of individual facility totals.

Waste

(l)
The recycle rate is the total routine recycled, composted and reused weight divided by the total weight of routine waste.

(m)
Treatment means the physical, thermal, chemical or biological processes that change the characteristics of the waste in order to reduce its volume or hazardous nature, facilitate its handling or enhance recovery.

(n)
Nonroutine waste constitutes waste generated outside the normal operations of our facilities and consists mainly of construction and demolition waste.

Fleet

(o)
Emissions and fuel use avoided are the result of improvements in fleet efficiency from years 2007 through 2012 based on a 2007 baseline and years 2013+ based on a 2012 baseline. Beginning in 2017, sales fleet encompasses our U.S. sales fleet and international fleets. This represents approximately 90 percent of our sales fleet based on distance driven.

Compliance

(p)
Environmental notices of violation (NOVs) reported that resulted from agency inspections.

Bureau Veritas North America, Inc., has provided limited assurance of the accuracy of Amgen's data for energy use, greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 and Scope 2), water withdrawal and fate, waste quantities and disposition, environmental notices of violation, recordable case rate and days away case rate. Please see our Independent Verification Statement  for additional information.
