Amgen Inc.

"Amgen Inc., a company based in the USA, has set a net zero target of achieving 100% carbon neutrality across Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2027. Net Zero Tracker
The company has not specified what gases are covered by its target. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting aspect of their environmental policy is that for operations where carbon emissions cannot be eliminated, Amgen supports additional projects that sequester or avoid greenhouse gas emissions. Net Zero Tracker
However, they had not purchased credits in 2019, according to their 2020 CDP report. Net Zero Tracker

Sector Benchmark

Note: Latest GHG and revenue data (based on tradingview.com) are used to calculate GHG emissions intensity by sector. The color scale of each bubble depends on the GHG intensity (GHG emissions per 1 million USD revenue). Sectors follow the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS) that organize companies based on their primary business activities. The 11 sectors are : Information Technology, Health Care, Financials, Consumer Discretionary, Communication Services, Industrials, Consumer Staples, Energy, Utilities, Real Estate, and Materials.

Amgen Inc. belongs to the sector Health Care.
