Baxter’s Carbon Neutral HQ Uses Renewable Energy

Deerfield, Illinois [] In a keynote address to nearly 600 attendees at the 2007 Ceres Conference in Boston, Baxter Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert L. Parkinson, Jr. announced that Baxter has committed to continue to incorporate renewable energy sources into its sustainability strategy. Baxter’s headquarters campus (100 acres) relies on electricity for 98% of its energy needs, which will be offset through the purchase of the renewable energy certificates (RECs). Parkinson noted that some Baxter facilities use alternative or renewable energy, such as solar, biodiesel and biomass. To offset the emissions associated with Baxter’s natural gas use, the company has purchased credits on the Chicago Climate Exchange.
