In addition, our Helix® on-site stocking system helps consolidate shipments by tracking product use in real time and offers a net-zero emissions distribution method.

All 2020 Goals Achieved


Goals and reductions are indexed to revenue over 2015 levels.


One of the hardest things for people to wrap their heads around tends to be the idea that small wins add up to big victories. However, if we want to make a big difference for the future of our planet and its people, we have to overcome our indifferences towards so many small things in life.

– Mauro Ciglic, General Manager, Promega AG

Reducing Packaging Materials

We continually evaluate the sustainability of our packaging to use less paperboard, ink and adhesive, use environmentally friendly materials, and design for recycling or reuse while maintaining product protection and quality. Our environmentally conscious efforts include switching to smaller shipping boxes to use less materials, changing to unbleached shipping boxes with sustainably harvested materials and using biodegradable and recyclable air pouches that protect our products. In addition, we have implemented designs that minimize package air space and incorporate better insulating materials, efforts that reduced both shipment weight and the amount of dry ice.


Conserving Water

Promega evaluates initiatives to conserve water in manufacturing, landscaping and other everyday needs at all locations. Examples include collecting rainwater for cleaning and irrigating plants in Australia and water conservation projects at manufacturing sites in California and Wisconsin. Since 2015, water usage has reduced by over 50% as indexed to revenue.
