The Driving Force

The pharmaceutical business supply chain includes API, bulk drug, drug intermediate and Pharma formulation manufacturing units, warehouses, logistics and other service providers.

Stakeholder pressure from investors, shareholders, customers and non-profits to push sustainability into the supply chain has significantly increased in recent years. The recently launched Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines also requires an increased focus on sustainability throughout the supply chain.

Responsible practices improve the integrity of a brand, ensures business continuity and manage operational costs.
