LFB takes concrete action to control the environmental impact of its work.
A policy of reducing secondary packaging was set up in 2009, which means several tonnes less isothermal and refrigerated packaging produced each year.
LFB’s supply chain is being rationalised, aiming at a fourfold reduction in greenhouse gas emissions produced by transporting its medicinal products.
