GRI Index

This index contains Standard Disclosures from the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The GRI guidelines offer a useful framework to help companies standardize their sustainability reporting.

We measure and report on our overall energy and carbon, water, waste, and sales fleet fuel efficiency performance. We include data gathered from 19 manufacturing, research and development, and distribution facilities in North America, South America, Eurasia, Asia and Europe, representing approximately 94 percent of our operations—based on our facilities’ square footage. The remaining square footage includes primarily administrative offices. Recently acquired facilities are outside the scope of our reporting.

Our 2016 environmental data have undergone limited assurance by Bureau Veritas North America.

The index summarizes Amgen’s disclosures in relation to the GRI G4 indicators.
