Environment & Climate Change

Information about Indivior’s climate change strategy, governance, risks and metrics (except for the performance information recorded below) is recorded within the TCFD statement. 


Indivior’s Fine Chemical Plant (“FCP”), which is located in Hull (UK) is the location which represents Indivior’s main area of environmental risk. Buprenorphine is manufactured at this site using raw materials and a seven stage process involving the use of hazardous chemicals. 


The FCP has an environmental management plan which focuses on performing a process of continual improvement in line with the requirements of the UK Environment Agency and good industry practice.
The site’s operations are governed by the FCP’s Environmental Permit and its ISO14001:2015 certification.

Indivior currently does not have emission reduction targets. Indivior will consider introducing these after it has introduced a regular internal emissions reporting system during 2022.


Emissions in 2021

The noted rise in Scope 3 emissions within the table below is due to a methodology change to include additional upstream emissions associated with energy generation and fuel production in line with good practice. The noted Scope 1 rise is the result of greater activity levels at Indivior’s UK sites in 2021 (lower in 2020 because of the greater effect of the global COVID-19 pandemic).
