Merck Pledges To Cut GHG Emissions 12% By 2012

merck2.jpgMerck plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its global operations by 12 percent by the end of 2012, using 2004 as its base year.

Karen Klimas, vice president, Global Safety and the Environment, explained that Merck’s target is an absolute goal, meaning that the Company’s greenhouse gas (GHG) initiatives will not only need to reduce 12 percent from 2004 levels, but will also need to offset 100 percent of any emissions due to increased production in order to achieve a net 12 percent GHG reduction over the period.

Klimas noted that Merck is on target to reach a 25 percent reduction in intensity of energy demand from the baseline year of 2004 by the end of 2008 (measured in million BTUs per unit area).

The announcement was made as part of Merck’s participation in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Climate Leaders program, which Merck joined in 2006.
