Biogen Puts $250M Toward Protecting the Climate, Human Health, Social Justice

October 23, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


With its commitment to eliminate fossil fuel use by 2040, Biogen aims to accelerate progress on improving air quality and addressing the harm being done to vulnerable communities around the world.

The pace of progress moves fast, especially when it comes to sustainability. For corporate commitments around climate, what was groundbreaking just a few years ago can be sorely lacking today — as the consensus need for stronger, bolder action grows.

In 2014, Biogen — a multinational biotechnology and health company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts — was praised for its then-industry-leading climate-neutrality pledge. Just six years later, the company has gone even further — committing to completely eliminate the use of fossil fuels by 2040; to address climate change, but also something that is often given less attention when it comes to sustainability — human health.
