Catalent Publishes Third Annual Corporate Responsibility Report
SOMERSET, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Catalent, Inc. (NYSE: CTLT), the global leader in enabling biopharma, cell, gene, and consumer health partners to optimize development, launch, and supply of better patient treatments across multiple modalities, today published its Corporate Responsibility (CR) Report for its most recent fiscal year, which ended June 30, 2021. The report is the third since Catalent launched its CR strategy to address a wide range of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) topics related to its business.
The fiscal 2021 report details Catalent’s approaches and achievements in innovation, quality, supply chain responsibility, environmental sustainability, talent, and enhancing its relationship with its communities; as well as charting its performance relative to the standards set by the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB) standard for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries and, for the first time, the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
Building on years of continuous improvement since Catalent began focusing resources on ESG issues, this year’s report shares new progress in key areas such as carbon emissions, diversity and inclusion, and community investment. The report also covers Catalent’s significant contribution in manufacturing COVID-19 vaccine doses at unprecedented speed, while continuing its commitment to customers in producing more than 70 billion doses of other medicines spanning over 7,000 products.
“We set out our initial corporate responsibility goals in 2019, knowing that the mission ahead was going to be a long-term project that would require combined efforts across the whole Catalent team, as well as dedication and hard work to find meaningful solutions to issues of great importance,” commented John Chiminski, Chair and Chief Executive Officer of Catalent. He added, “No one could have predicted the events of the last two years on a global basis, but, in what has been another extraordinary and challenging year, we have made great progress in a range of areas, including emissions reduction and diversity and inclusion, while remaining steadfastly true to our core values of always putting people and patients first.”
The report highlights Catalent’s achievement in fiscal 2021 of an earlier goal to reduce Scope 2 carbon emissions by 15% and its new commitment to science-based targets that will reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions 42% by 2030 from Catalent’s fiscal 2020 baseline. Additionally, as of July 1, a significant majority of Catalent sites are powered by 100% renewable electricity. The company also committed to no residual active pharmaceutical ingredient in its wastewater above Predicted No Effect Concentration by fiscal 2024, a standard that exceeds all known regulatory requirements.
As noted in the report, Catalent’s philanthropic giving was the highest ever, exceeding $1 million, in part due to its support of local relief efforts during the COVID-19 crisis; as well as investing in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education; and donations to organizations that serve patients, with a focus on underserved communities. Catalent’s leadership diversity has increased, and the company is committed to continually working to improve diversity and an inclusive culture at all levels and transparently share data. These commitments are reinforced by the company’s growing Employee Resource Group network, which reached 45 chapters across eight global communities during fiscal 2021.
