The Walgreens distribution center in Moreno Valley, California, USA, launched a zero waste to landfill pilot program in fiscal 2016.
At Walgreens Boots Alliance we have the ability to drive large-scale initiatives and positively impact our environment, which is why we aim to protect it and do our part to ensure it flourishes for future generations. 

We assessed where we can make the greatest impact in the realm of environmental efficiencies, and identified three key goals. While our Company promotes safe drinking water initiatives through our community programs, we are not a high-use water industry, and therefore have chosen to focus on energy, waste and deforestation.

This section outlines our environmental efforts in fiscal 2016 and the progress we are making through our three Environmental Goals.



Energy
To reduce our energy consumption and Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions on a comparable basis* as defined by the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP)**

Waste
To reduce the waste we create, on a comparable basis*, and to contribute to the drive for increasingly circular economies through increased re-use and recycling

Deforestation
To develop plans to help achieve zero net deforestation by 2020, collaborating with other organizations in a global initiative

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals




 
*Excludes the impact of acquisitions, disposals and any significant changes in existing operations
**The GHGP, established by the World Resources Institute and the World Business Council on Sustainable Development (WBCSD), sets the global standard for how to measure, manage, and report greenhouse gas emissions; Scope 1 emissions arise directly from sources owned or controlled by the Company while Scope 2 emissions are those generated by purchased electricity, heat and steam consumed by the Company; Scope 3 refers to other indirect emissions
