All German sites of the pharmaceutical service provider will be supplied with green electricity moving forward
Vetter, a global operating Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) has reached another important milestone regarding sustainability. Beginning immediately, all German sites of the company will be supplied with only CO2 neutral energy from certified renewable energy sources. This action underlines the CDMO’s commitment to climate and environmental protection as an important element of its corporate responsibility.
As a partner of biotechnology and pharmaceutical customers both large and small, Vetter has been meeting high international sustainability requirements for many years.
Thomas Otto, MD, Vetter said, “Sustainability is a central pillar of Vetter’s corporate philosophy and our stance on this subject is firmly anchored within our organization. The supply of our German sites with green electricity is an important part of our company-wide program for environmental protection, energy management, and occupational health and safety. Our aim is to act holistically and develop our multi-faceted initiatives in these areas on a continuous basis.”
Within the next ten years Vetter plans to offset the company-wide use of natural gas, making it completely CO2 neutral. Unavoidable CO2 emissions are offset by investments in high-quality climate protection projects.
The largest sustainability project the CDMO recently implemented is at its state-of-the-art center for visual inspection and logistics, which received the international industry prize Facility of the Year Award (FOYA) in 2018 as a Facility of the Future.
