Thanks for sharing that, Ruth! From the article:

We also estimated how much the pharmaceutical sector would have to reduce its emissions to comply with the reduction targets in the Paris agreement.

We found that by 2025, the overall pharma sector would need to reduce its emissions intensity by about 59 percent from 2015 levels... it is interesting to note that some of the 15 largest companies are already operating at that level, namely Amgen Inc., Johnson & Johnson and Roche Holding AG.

If those performance levels are achievable by some, why can't they be achieved by all?

These three leading companies are also the ones with the highest level of profitability and revenue growth in the whole sector.

By our calculations, the pharma market is 28 percent smaller yet 13 percent more polluting than the automotive sector.

Bill Nye just made the best climate video!

Bill Nye the Science Guy offers a NSFW demonstration, replete with swearwords, on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. (The rest of the show is about the Green New Deal; I'll definitely watch that as well!)
