Concern for our global environment is a core Abbott value. It's a long-standing, year-round commitment focused on a set of ambitious goals for reducing our impact on the environment. We're working toward a 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, a 30 percent reduction in total water intake, and a 50 percent reduction in total waste by 2020*.
Building on this work, Abbott employees have long celebrated Earth Day and World Environment Day with events at work and in the community. But these aren't one-day activities. Rather, they reflect our deep and lasting dedication to making the world a better, healthier place for future generations.
