Climate change is the biggest threat to world health, yet the healthcare sector’s climate footprint is estimated to be 4-5 % of global net emissions.
Finding ways to improve the environmental performance across the biopharmaceutical value chain is increasingly important for drug license holders and device manufacturers, their investors, customers, and their patients. However, there are still many parts of industry processes for which there is no clearly defined operating standard. Finding ways to tackle key issues in energy, emissions, plastics and materials, and water management has never been more urgent.
BioPhorum has a proven track-record of bringing together technical experts from across the globe to help industry build, share and embed best practices with the aim of improving productivity, reducing time to market, and improving regulatory coordination. Our members are now recognizing that many of these efforts also improve their sustainability footprint, and increasingly this is a dimension also for prioritizing workstreams within Phorums.
BioPhorum’s unique ability to build a strong coalition for change for an entire industry is therefore now being applied to the greatest challenge of a generation, supported by a Phorum dedicated to sustainability.
Our members are looking for us to enable the sustainability impact of workstreams across Phorums to be recognized and optimized. But in particular, through working together in BioPhorum Sustainability, members have designed a program of work that reflects the unique needs of the biopharmaceutical and medical device industries to deliver step-by-step improvements in several priority areas including raw materials, manufacturing, distribution and use, and end of life.
