Created by the global index and data provider FTSE Russell, which is wholly owned by the London Stock Exchange Group, the FTSE4Good Index Series is designed to measure the performance of companies demonstrating strong Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices. Inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index Series is based on independent analysis of data from over 7,200 securities in 47 developed and emerging markets. This year, WuXi Biologics significantly improved its overall ESG score, as well as its score on each of the three ESG pillars.

Among the ESG efforts, WuXi Biologics has undertaken a firm commitment to decarbonization and a goal of reducing Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions intensity by 50 percent by 2030 from a 2020 base year. The company decreased its GHG emissions intensity significantly over the last three years, while also continuously improving its overall energy efficiency. In 2022, WuXi Biologics rolled out projects for promotion of renewable energy such as solar power throughout multiple China sites and has worked methodically to implement programs to reduce its environmental footprint at all its global sites. In addition, WuXi Biologics is also committed to driving green upgrades at all levels of its supply chain. The company is collaborating with its strategic supply chain partners to identify opportunities for accelerating efforts in support of long term sustainability goals.
