MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Promega Corporation, a global biotechnology manufacturer, today announced publication of its annual Corporate Responsibility Report of sustainable practices and resulting trends through the previous year. The 2019 report documents how, over the last three years, an overall culture of sustainability resulted in an 8% reduction in the company’s carbon-to-revenue footprint.
“We not only spend time reinforcing why [sustainability] is important, but also examine how we achieve these results, and for us this begins with each person at Promega,” says Promega founder and CEO Bill Linton. “Promega employees, tapping into their own unique passions and expertise, have been the source of many innovative and meaningful ideas. These ideas, in turn, have helped our company invent new products, recycle materials, create innovative health programs, exceed customer expectations and support local communities. Someone sparked an idea and the rest of us fanned the flame.”

- Designing and building highly efficient facilities globally with aggressive sustainability goals and strategies, including current projects in Germany, the United Kingdom, and Madison, Wisconsin.
