Managing environmental impacts

Indivior’s approach to managing its environmental impacts has been developed at a local level in line with its activities at each site. The main area of risk is linked to Indivior’s Fine Chemical Plant (FCP) in Hull, UK, where buprenorphine is produced using raw materials and a seven-stage process, which involves the use of hazardous chemicals. The FCP’s environmental management plan comprises a process of continual improvement to ensure the plant operates in line with the expectations of the UK regulator and good industry practice. The plan considers all aspects of the plant’s operations and potential or actual effects on the environment. It is governed by the FCP’s Environmental Permit, Consent to Discharge Permit, and ISO 14001:2015 certification.

Key focus areas within the FCP environmental plan include:
 

Indivior’s remaining major sites consist of:
 

Measurement methodology

Indivior’s greenhouse emissions are calculated by an expert external service provider. The method used to calculate GHG emissions is the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard (revised edition), together with the latest emission factors from recognized public sources including, but not limited to, BEIS, the US Energy Information Administration, the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change. Indivior’s baseline year is 2015 and Indivior applies the Operational Control method.

Energy saving measures

Indivior’s sites have shown a reduction in energy usage and emissions as a result of home-working following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the first quarter of 2020. Many of Indivior’s sites monitor energy use as a consequence of cost control measures. The use of equipment is regularly reviewed for opportunities to reduce energy use and emissions by local and group managers. One feature is the operation of a 25KW solar farm at Indivior’s R&D Center of Excellence in Hull in the UK.
