Key Performance Indicators
Pfizer is committed to enhancing its workplace safety and environmental performance and improving our transparency through reporting.
We accomplish this by measuring our performance, setting improvement targets, and disclosing publicly. We also set public goals related to issues of concern and significance to our business; for example reducing our greenhouse gas emissions.
Measuring and Monitoring
Pfizer measures, monitors, evaluates, tracks and reports environment, health and safety (EHS) performance metrics cconsidered relevant to our business and important in managing our global EHS Program. We do this through a combination of data collection and verification, internal audits, facility self-assessments and management system reviews that span the site, functional and corporate levels. We use key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure and externally report our global performance.
Our focus on measuring and monitoring EHS performance data enables us to highlight successes and identify program areas for continuous improvement, helping provide a picture of how our operations affect the natural and workplace environments and the communities where we are located. We are also working to better understand our extended product and operational footprint to identify opportunities to further mitigate our impact.
Pfizer's scope for data collection is directed by our EHS Standards. With the exception of smaller sources (leased R&D < 50k sq ft and Commercial / Logistics Centers > 100k sq ft), EHS performance data includes Pfizer manufacturing, R&D, commercial and logistics center facilities and excludes outsourced operations.
Environmental data is baseline-adjusted in accordance with the Greenhouse Gas Protocol for World Resources Institute's (WRI) Corporate Standard. Facility closures are included in the data set while divested units are not. Injury and illness data does not follow WRI since it is rate-based and is therefore, not baseline adjusted.
Disclosure and Performance Reporting
Pfizer emphasizes accuracy, transparency and usability when disclosing and reporting our EHS performance. We report annually on key EHS performance indicators, many of which follow Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) guidelines and consider the UN Global Compact Principles.
Our external website and Pfizer's annual integrated report, which highlights our financial, environmental and social performance, serve as the primary channels for publically disclosing our EHS performance. Additionally, we voluntarily participate in various sustainability questionnaires, such as those offered by Carbon Disclosure Project (carbon, water), Bloomberg (Climate Innovation Index), and Newsweek (Green Rankings).
