Webinar: Pharma and the healthcare Paradox - Corporate Sustainability in the pharmaceutical industry
Although vision statements of all pharmaceutical companies reflect on saving and improving lives, the sector accounts for a significant fraction of global (air) pollution, impacting global health. Up to now, there was relatively little pressure on the pharma industry to become more sustainable, but times are changing with the Paris Climate Agreement on our heels. Some companies are already operating at the level needed to meet the Paris climate accords, but time is running out for the laggards. This webinar will give an overview of where the pharmaceutical industry stands today with regards to sustainability, demonstrating some hurdles, best practices and tips for companies to address the healthcare Paradox.
