  • Sadly we had one road traffic related fatality in 2018. Refer to the 2017 Annual Review for explanation of the injury rate increase noted in 2017. Factors leading to this increase were not repeated in 2018. The primary cause of injuries and illnesses recorded in 2018 related to slips, trips and falls, and ergonomics.
  • Applies to facilities within Pfizer's operational control as compared with a 2012 baseline. Data are baseline adjusted, reported absolute, using reporting boundaries per the WRI GHG Protocol. The 2012–2017 GHG data was independently verified to the limited assurance level. The verification of the 2018 GHG data will be completed in 2019. In both 2017 and 2018 we met our 2020 goals for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, waste reductions, and water conservation. While we expect some fluctuations in our environmental sustainability performance due to business changes in 2019 and 2020, we are confident that we are in a position to develop new goals in 2019 that align with the strategic objectives of Pfizer's three business units. Through 2020 and beyond we will continue to focus on emission and resource reduction projects. Expanded environmental reporting will be posted on later in 2019.
  • Key suppliers currently include 126 major contributors to our external environmental footprint, strategic collaborators with Worldwide Research and Development, and those suppliers we anticipate having continued involvement with. Key suppliers represent only a portion of Pfizer's overall supply chains for goods and services and we continue to look for opportunities to broaden our influence on our supply base.
