Eli Lilly

"Eli Lilly & Co. has set a net zero target to become carbon neutral by 2030. Net Zero Tracker
This target covers only carbon dioxide and includes scope 1 and scope 2 emissions, but not scope 3 or historical emissions. Net Zero Tracker
The company's strategy is to reduce emissions as much as possible internally before considering offsets. Net Zero Tracker
From 2020 to 2022, they achieved a 23% absolute emissions reduction and a 13% year-on-year reduction from 2021. Net Zero Tracker
An interesting fact about their environmental policy is that they plan to source 100% of their purchased electricity …"

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.

Eli Lilly belongs to the sector Health Care.

Offsets

Last update for Eli Lilly & Co. by zerotracker.net: Sept. 5, 2023
Planning to use external offset credits Yes
Separate targets for emission reductions and removals No
Conditions on use of offset credits
  • Other conditions
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) Not Specified

Additional notes: Lilly does not currently partake in offsetting but does outline that it believes it will be a necessary part of their strategy to reach net zero by 2030. It maintains that its primary goal is to reduce emissions and replace carbon-intensive sources with clean energy sources.

However, they did not purchase any carbon offsets in fiscal year 2022 based on a decision-making process that is "based on the remaining emissions that cannot be eliminated" for a given year.
