Baxter UK launches carbon deliveries

Baxter Healthcare has launched carbon neutral deliveries of its products in a project that is being labelled as the first of its kind within the Baxter Europe company
Baxter Healthcare has launched carbon neutral deliveries of its products in a project that is being labelled as the first of its kind within the Baxter Europe company.

The pharmaceutical company says the project will offset its carbon footprint created by the total mileage between its distribution centre in Northampton and all Baxter customers by investing in renewable energy projects around the world. Baxter hopes that this measure will ensure that all deliveries are carbon neutral.

Baxter has supported two projects through the offset initiative, one of which is a wind power programme in India involving 22 new wind turbines at a number of sites in Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu, in southern India. The second investment was in a hydro power project in China, involving the construction of small and medium hydro power stations.

Harry Keenan, general manager of Baxter UK, said: "Baxter views sustainability as a long-term strategic approach to balancing business opportunities with social, economic and environmental responsibilities. We view this as integral to our business and our sustainability efforts naturally align with and support the company's commitment to saving and sustaining lives."
