CPHI Webinar Series

Creating a Circular Economy for the Pharmaceutical Packaging Industry

What will this webinar address?

The pharma packaging sector is one of the most environmentally conscious segments of the overall pharma industry, driven in part by healthcare professionals and patients demonstrating an increased awareness of sustainable approaches to packaging materials, distribution and disposal.

Pharma packaging companies face the particular challenges of achieving a delicate balance between ensuring drug efficacy, patient safety, supply chain security and sustainability. This has led to significant innovation in the space, through development of reusable or recyclable materials, the decarbonization of operations and supply chains, and overall waste reduction.

But pharma companies cannot achieve sustainability goals by working in silos – instead, what steps can be taken to create a circular economy, supporting value chain collaboration and cross-industry partnerships, towards a common goal?

Key discussion points include:

  • The mechanics of creating a circular economy for the pharma packaging industry, from value chains to product design and development
  • Examples of cross-industry collaboration for waste reduction and recyclability
  • ‘Sustainability by Design’ – incorporating environmental consciousness into every aspect of packaging design and development
  • Innovative approaches to sustainable packaging solutions
