Since AbbVie first published this article in November of 2021, AbbVie has completed the development of our science-based targets. We submitted our proposed near-term 1.5°C targets to the Science Based Target initiative (SBTi) in August of 2022, and we are awaiting the validation of those targets.

Climate change is real.
As a company, we’ve taken several steps to secure our supply chain against the impacts of climate change, including making significant investments in energy efficiency, sustainability and resiliency projects. But to continue leading in our response, we recognize that we can – and should – do more. That’s why we’ve committed to achieving science-based targets for lowering emissions.
Through the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi), we’ll align with the latest climate science deemed necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement. This process will push us as a company, and each of us as employees, to be even more ambitious in reducing our environmental impact and to invest more critically in sustainable growth.
