Environmental

As part of our overall corporate responsibility, we pride ourselves on our commitment to environmental, health and safety matters in all aspects of our business. As a vertically integrated pharmaceutical company with worldwide operations, we believe that our adherence to applicable laws and regulations, together with proactive management beyond mere compliance, enhances our manufacturing competitive advantage, minimizes business and operational risks and helps us to avoid adverse environmental effects in the communities where we operate. We believe that we are in substantial compliance with all applicable environmental, health and safety requirements.

Among our environmental initiatives in 2008 were (i) implementation of projects aimed at reducing the usage of energy resources; (ii) expansion of our waste recycling projects; (iii) further implementation of ISO 14001, an environmental management standard; and (iv) increased attention to the principles of green construction.

switching to more environmentally friendly energy sources (solar power in Irvine, California and liquefied petroleum gas in Kfar Saba, Israel); and

 

   

implementing ISO 14001, an environmental management standard: three manufacturing sites have been certified as ISO 14001 compliant and other sites are presently undergoing a certification process.

In addition, on an annual basis, Teva sets forth objectives focusing on the decrease of energy consumption and water usage as well as improvement of waste disposal and treatment. These objectives are set forth in annual environmental work plans prepared for each Teva site.
