Environmental

Acceleron believes in protecting the environment, promoting the sustainable use of natural resources, and minimizing waste. Since 2016, Acceleron has supported an internal “Green Committee” that collaborates with our Facilities Team to identify and implement sustainability projects. In 2020, we hired a full-time Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) manager, in addition to investing in contracted EHS support, to facilitate a safer and more sustainable workplace. While the Company’s environmental efforts are still in the early stages of implementation, we have started to execute on a number of environmentally focused initiatives that will take place over the next one to five years. For example, in 2021, Acceleron will execute a company-wide initiative to minimize paper waste by approximately 10% to 15% by shifting to electronic record keeping. Acceleron is fully committed to executing on a wide-range of environmental sustainability plans, goals, and initiatives as we continue to build a leading biopharmaceutical company. We look forward to sharing our progress in the future.

Acceleron believes in making positive change in the communities in which we live and work. We pride ourselves on being a responsible company and encourage activities that promote good corporate social responsibility. We foster relationships with local organizations to which we provide charitable donations and promote volunteerism. We also encourage innovative science through educational and scientific grants and support policies that aim to advance science and prioritize patient needs. We also recognize the importance of protecting human rights and will never condone or permit human trafficking, child labor, or forced labor.

Accelerators are always encouraged to make a difference on their own and to spend time on causes they believe in. It takes all of us to sail forward.
