AmerisourceBergen is committed to recycling as well as the reduction of waste generation. We are taking innovative, strategic steps to create a more sustainable footprint. In most offices worldwide, we cut paper waste and look for opportunities to utilize digital communications.
Last year, we partnered with a waste management solutions company to help streamline and optimize our network. We now have better insight into our waste portfolio and can better strategize for reduction or diversion opportunities. In FY20, our US Human Health locations achieved 79% waste diversion.
AmerisourceBergen is also committed to sustainable packaging and removing single-use, petroleum-based materials like plastics and polystyrene foam from our operations and sourcing more ecological options. We utilize a sustainable, cold-chain packaging solution that includes reusable totes and plant-based, phase-change material ice packs across our human health distribution centers.
