The Highest Standards

Eco Program

  • 1

    billion pounds of paper recycled in 2022*

  • 38

    million pounds of pharmaceutical waste safely disposed*

  • 101

    million pounds of sharps waste plastic from landfills*

For the past 10 years, using state-of-the-art technology, we have developed a solution that reduces 90 per cent of landfill waste per device* and converts it into clean electric energy.

Healthcare professionals and clinics can make an environmentally sound decision as well. This not only enhances their role as responsible healthcare providers but also raises awareness about the significance of sustainability in their practice.

When patients choose sustainability for their fertility journey, they contribute to a greener future while receiving the highest standard of care.

Slim Packs

Emphasizing our commitment to sustainability, we have developed a Slim Pack that is 40 per cent smaller than previous packaging. This not only optimizes space but also contributes to a more sustainable packaging solution.

With Slim Packs, CO2 emissions were successfully reduced by 33 per cent through enhanced transport efficiencies.* This reduction in
emissions is a direct result of our ongoing efforts to improve sustainability across our supply chain.

As healthcare professionals and clinics, we understand the importance of making environmentally sound decisions when prescribing or choosing fertility products. At EMD Serono, we believe that sustainability and healthcare go hand-in-hand.


Less Waste

As part of our dedication to sustainability, we have implemented cryo-packaging that transforms the way products are packaged and transported. They are designed to eliminate the need for single-use packaging.

What does this achieve?

  • We significantly reduce the amount of waste generated from packaging materials.
  • This not only benefits the environment but also aligns with our values of responsible resource management.
  • Temperature-sensitive fertility products require special care during transportation to maintain their effectiveness. Cryo packaging provides the necessary protection while ensuring that the carbon footprint associated with packaging is minimized.
  • HCPs and clinics can minimize the management of disposal packaging.

This helps optimize a clinic’s operational efficiency and eliminates the unnecessary occupation of valuable clinic space. This sustainable packaging solution also allows them to focus on providing exceptional patient care without worrying about the logistical challenges associated with packaging waste.  

Our global commitment

  • 2040

    is the year by which we aim to achieve climate neutrality.

Our climate targets by 2030

  • -50%

    By 2030, we intend to reduce our direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions (Scope 1 and 2) by 50% (2020 baseline).

  • 80%

    We aim to cover 80% of our purchased electricity with renewables by 2030.

  • 52%

    We have pledged to lower our indirect emissions along the entire value chain (Scope 3) by 52% per euro value added (2020 baseline).
