Environment

At Teva, we’re actively working to address our environmental impact.

Recycling waste, saving energy and reducing our carbon footprint are all priorities for us.

Some examples of what we are doing at our sites to address our environmental impact are:

  • Improved recycling facilities, including paper, plastic, metal and cardboard
  • MDF pallet tops recycled and processed into biomass fuel, which powers hospitals and other industrial sites

We care about our environmentEnergy and lighting are current priorities for our environmental team – two major contributors to both CO2 emissions and costs. We’re constantly evaluating our environmental impact and looking at how and where improvements can be made.

It’s not just the big things – little changes can make a big difference too:

  • A computer left on overnight for a year creates enough CO2 to fill a double-decker bus
  • Switching office lights off at night can save enough energy to heat a home for almost five months
  • A 2°C increase in office temperature creates enough CO2 in a year to fill a hot air balloon

Our Working Environment

We’re committed to the protection of colleagues, contractors, visitors, communities and the environment in all of our locations and providing a safe and healthy environment in which to work.

We’re proud of the five star rating we achieved after a British Safety Council audit. Organisations around the world use this ratings scheme to benchmark themselves against current best practice to enable continual improvement.

Putting health and safety first: Both our distribution centre in Castleford and our solid dose packaging site in Eastbourne have achieved OHSAS 18001 standards.

The OHSAS 18001 standard is internationally accepted as a method of assessing and auditing occupational health and safety management systems. Developed by leading trade and international standards bodies, it provides a framework for organisations to instigate proper and effective management of health and safety in the workplace.

Minimising our environmental impact is something we take very seriously: Both our distribution centre in Castleford and our solid dose packaging site in Eastbourne have achieved ISO 14001 certification.

ISO 14000 is a family of standards related to environmental management that exists to help organizations minimize how their operations negatively affect the environment (i.e. cause adverse changes to air, water, or land), and comply with applicable laws, regulations and continually improve how they operate.
