The Greening of the Cold Chain
Sustainability has become a buzz-word throughout the logistics space but it seems it has a variety of interpretations. It can range from using renewable resources in production, reducing energy use in operations, waste-reduction and more. The pharmaceutical industry is certainly no stranger to sustainability and is in fact facing mounting pressure from the public and governments to reduce its environmental impact. However, its dilemma may be considered a bit different from pressures that other industries are facing. For example, the pharmaceutical industry must balance safety standards while improving its environmental impact.
A growing number of pharmaceutical companies are establishing sustainability programs. Among them is Johnson & Johnson who has incorporated it into its overall strategy.
