Environmental Stewardship Program
Since 2015, Perrigo implemented the Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP). A core function of the ESP is to promote and drive environmental sustainability throughout Perrigo’s business globally through goal setting, projects and engagement. This starts with our operations and continues with our products and our supply chain.

Three Step Environmental Stewardship Strategy
Our Environmental Stewardship Program consists of a three-pronged strategy, aimed at advancing environmental sustainability on the areas we impact the most.
Using 2015 as a baseline, we’ve set goals to reduce our Greenhouse gas emissions, energy, water and waste by 15% by 2020.
We’ve set goals to improve packaging recyclability and efficiency, improve recycle labeling, and offer sustainable options whenever regulations allow.
Responsible Supply Chain
From Certified Sustainable Palm Oil to Sustainable Forest Packaging, we maintain goals and requirements in key areas of our supply chain.
Global Climate Change and Warming

Reduced Greenhouse gas emissions by 13% within our own operations
