Big Pharma gets green kudos for carbon-tracking

Posted on Carbon Offsets Daily, Climate Counts recently released a scorecard for pharma. Great news, pharma outscored media on a one-to-100 scale, with higher scores indicating greater commitment to the environment, top drugmaker AstraZeneca tallied a 76, with Johnson & Johnson on its heels at 75. Twelve more pharma companies scored 50 or higher. By contrast, top-scoring media firm General Electric (which owns NBC) boasted a 71, and second-placer News Corp. got a 63. In third place, Disney came in with a measly 25.

Because AstraZeneca scored so highly, do you think other organizations in Big Pharma will follow?

The Green Pharma Summit is about how Pharma is going green. Pharmaceutical companies are discovering that going green is not just for altruistic reasons, but that going green actually has benefits to the bottom line. Going green saves and makes money.
