This is one of the reasons why we use a global energy management system (GEMS) to help ensure we meet energy reduction and greenhouse gas reduction targets.
This approach guides our work to deliver optimal network energy performance to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enable informed decision making on energy investment projects across our diverse regional footprint.
Boston Scientific’s European distribution centre is based in Kerkrade, Netherlands. Here, all our medical products are dispatched to hospitals across the globe.
All of the site’s electrical power is sourced from European wind farms and purchasing carbon compensated natural gas, resulting in net zero carbon for energy use for the site.
Lean and Green Star Program
Lean & Green is Europe’s leading program for sustainable logistics.
The program encourages organisations to achieve a higher level of sustainability by taking measures that not only yield cost savings, but simultaneously reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
We are pleased that Boston Scientific was recognised as a leader in this program in 2018.
Spotlight on: Kerkrade
The renovation, aligned with our global design guidelines, allows to reduce energy consumption through the use of LED lights, daylight control and presence detection, and provide a safer work environment, thanks to anti-allergic materials. The work spaces encourage formal and informal interaction with a seamless technological experience. The result is a new way of working, that promotes health and wellness.
