Celebrating Earth Day 2021!

Xellia Pharmaceuticals (‘Xellia’), a specialty pharmaceutical company that provides important anti-infective treatments against serious and often life-threatening infections, is celebrating World Earth Day today!

Geelanie Briones, Senior Vice President, Quality EHS and Sustainability, commented:
“At Xellia, we are responsible citizens who make responsible choices and actions in our business and operations to reduce our impact on the environment. As Ernest Hemingway puts it ‘The Earth is a fine place and worth fighting for.’ We act to do our best to preserve the Earth and ensure it is a good place to live for future generations.

I highly appreciate that our Xellia sites and functions have identified different activities to support our long-term sustainability targets and thereby the UN Sustainability Development Goals.”

Xellia is committed to building an environmentally responsible and sustainable business across all its sites, ensuring that we are sourcing and manufacturing responsibly with long-term targets to improve our energy efficiency and carbon footprint. 

As part of Xellia’s 2025 Sustainability Targets, we commit to use 50% of energy from carbon neutral sources at our manufacturing sites and to recycle and reuse 50% of the waste generated from production.  To meet this goal, the Company is constantly looking for ways to improve its operations, products, and services, as well as in using chemicals and natural resources responsibly.
