Eli Lilly and Company recently published its latest Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) report, highlighting its progress towards ambitious sustainability goals.

These highlights include:

The company achieved a more than 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions between 2020 and 2022 despite significant business growth during the same period.
