Protecting the environment

When we challenge our impact on the environment,

We advance ways to protect it

Our Commitment

Our commitment to improving patient health comes with a responsibility to protect the planet we all share. In 2017, we were the first global MedTech company to set an ambitious target of carbon neutrality in our manufacturing and distribution sites by 2030.

In addition to this, we have officially joined the United Nations Race to Zero and Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign.

In doing so, Boston Scientific commits to setting science-based emissions reduction targets that will put us on a path to achieve net-zero emissions across our entire value chain by 2050.

Boston Scientific has achieved an important milestone on our path to net-zero by having our emission reduction targets approved by the SBTi. This accomplishment establishes us as one of the first companies in the Healthcare Equipment and Supplies sector to have science-based, verified net-zero Scope 1, 2, and 3 targets under the SBTi Net-Zero Standard.

Our Promise

There's no doubt about it. Climate change threatens our planet and our health. Boston Scientific is one of the first medical device companies to commit to carbon neutrality by 2030 at all of our manufacturing and distribution sites. Because health is our primary concern.

Sustainability in Action

Whilst our life-saving products help millions of people worldwide, they also have a carbon footprint. We have a responsibility to look for ways to reduce that impact which we do through our C3 strategy:


Using  less  energy

By investing in upgrading our sales office network we reduced our energy consumption by using LED lights, daylight control and presence detection.


Switching  to renewables

All the electrical power for our European Centre of Operations in Kerkrade, the Netherlands is sourced from European wind farms resulting in significant decarbonization of energy use at the site.


Offsetting  emissions

With carbon credits and emission offset projects for any remaining unavoidable emissions.

QUIZ Time! What does Carbon Footprint mean?

“A carbon footprint is the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions caused directly and indirectly by an individual, organization, event or product, and is expressed as a carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 emissions).”4 We reduced our carbon footprint by 52% since 2017.2
