Pfizer’s Green Journey – Company Footprint
Pfizer is on a Green Journey
Publish company environmental KPIs alongside
financial performance metrics in annual report
• Integrated report to shareholders includes:
• Greenhouse Gas Footprint
• Waste Generated
• Water Withdrawal
http://www.pfizer.com/investors/financial_reports/annual_reports/2012/performance.jsp
Gaining Efficiency – Site Operations
Achieved 5-yr Public Goal to Reduce Greenhouse Gas
Emissions by 20% after only 4 years
• Second time since 2000 that Pfizer has achieved its
target of cutting GHG emissions.
• Result of more than 1500 energy conservation
projects
• Achieved $85M in annualized project savings
• Every dollar invested recovered within 2 years, on
average.
Gaining Efficiency - Processes
A Decade of Green Chemistry
Case Study: Lyrica (Pregabalin) – process changes
 Process 1 (2005-2006)
Classical chemistry, carbon based solvents. Used to launch the product
 Process 2 (2006-2010)
Enzymatic chemistry, all chemical processes use water as solvent
 Process 3 (2010-present)
Enzymatic process, all chemical processes use water as solvent. One key
by-product which was incinerated in process 2 is now recovered and
converted to high quality product, albeit with a relatively high energy
process
Solvent, reagent and energy reduction gives a saving of 3 million tonnes
of CO2 emissions. Or equivalent to 500,000 US cars off the road for a year.
Green Chemistry
- Finding a better alternative through solvent selection.
Strategy
Encourage selection of “better” solvents by evaluating
the following characteristics:
–
–
–
Worker Safety - carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, reprotoxicity, skin
absorption, skin sensitisation and toxicity
Process Safety – flammability, potential for high emissions, static
charge, potential for peroxide formation, odour issues.
Environmental and Regulatory Considerations – ecotoxicity, ground
water contamination potential, EHS regulatory restrictions, ozone
depletion potential, photo reactive potential
Opportunities Identified
Use of better alternative solvents makes it safer for
workers, processes and the environment, where possible.

Gaining Efficiency – Product/Packaging
Formed Sustainable Packaging Team seeking
opportunities for reducing packaging weight,
optimizing designs, changing materials, and improving
pallet layouts
• Developed Green Package Design Checklist
• Thin gauging bottles and foils
• Eliminating extra PVC trays
• Eliminating inserts and individual cartons can
reduce overall packaging mass by 8%
• Smaller tablet that leads to less packaging
