The complexity and risks found within the global pharma supply chain cannot be understated and key stakeholders from customers to regulators and investors are increasingly expecting the industry to both manage ESG risks and embed sustainability throughout the value chain. This can only be achieved through industry-wide collaboration that establishes shared frameworks for what a responsible supply chain looks like. The Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative (PSCI) and our membership of 70+ pharma and healthcare companies are leading this collaboration. Through our Shared Audit Program, we are putting ESG into practice and building responsible supply chains.
