What will this webinar address?

Work is being done, but the pharma industry must target its entire value chain if it wants to make a real dent in truly reducing carbon emissions – Darcy Jimenez, healthcare reporter, Pharmaceutical Technology

Sustainability is no longer a ‘nice to have’ for the pharma industry; patients, health care professionals’ governments and shareholders all have a hand in directing pledges to achieve net zero in the not-too-distant future.
Whilst promising progress has been made in establishing programmes and initiatives to address environmental concerns, many goals are ambitious and pharma companies must collaborate wherever possible to share best practice, reduce impact and create circular economies.
Join the latest edition of the CPHI Webinar series to explore the current progress of the industry’s path to net zero, diving into best practices and forecasting future solutions to help the industry move towards a greener future.

  • Who are the sustainable market leaders? Who can we learn from?
  • 2030, 2040 or 2050? A look at different pledges and action plans for achieving ambitious goals
  • Considerations on making your value chain carbon neutral
  • Best practices in utilising green technology
  • What is needed in meeting greener supplier standards?
  • Highlighting Pharmaceutical household waste from medicines that expire or remain unused and best practices in reducing antimicrobial pollution
