As a next step in the evolution of Environmental, Social, and Government (ESG) factors at Labcorp, we joined more than 2,000 businesses and financial institutions in 2021 by committing to participate in Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), which drives ambitious climate action in the private sector by enabling organizations to set science-based emissions reduction targets.
decrease in energy per millions in revenue since 2019
invested in hybrid and electric vehicles in 2021
increase in waste recycled since 2020
One of our employer teams, the U.K. Go Green Team, successfully reduced C02 emissions through a polystyrene recycling program.
Previously, polystyrene waste was collected twice per week, with each collection requiring approximately 40 miles round trip. With new polystyrene recycling equipment at Labcorp’s Harrogate site the polystyrene waste is now compressed into small briquettes that weigh about four kilograms each. The briquettes are collected every four to six months and are recycled to be used in the construction industry.
