Pacbio's commitment to sustainability is central to our mission

PacBio realizes certain Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors create value and are highly relevant to our business and stakeholders. Therefore, we are embarking on a journey to unlock the transformational capabilities of ESG within our organization and embed them into our long-term business strategy. We aim to make a difference by organizing our sustainability activities under four primary pillars: Governance, Human Capital, Social and Environment.

Governance

Our Board of Directors is composed of leaders with significant experience in building world-class organizations. They bring focus, determination, and a passion for discovery, continually pushing our company to perform at the highest levels. Three of our nine directors are female, one self-identifying as “African American or Black”, as disclosed in our April 14, 2022, Board Diversity Matrix. We have established a cross-functional ESG Core Team made up of leaders in the organization to guide the development and implementation of our ESG strategy. This committee meets monthly and provides quarterly updates to the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee of the Board of Directors.

Environment

We are committed to minimizing the environmental impacts of our business operations and that commitment is embedded in our corporate values. We have an environmental policy to protect our people, environment and the business which is shared with employees during new hire orientation and is tied back to our corporate values. Training and development are provided to minimize risk to our people and the environment and rigorous waste reduction standards that aim to reduce, repurpose, or recycle when possible.
