Harnessing eco-design for medicine to bring about sustainable and responsible innovation
We make firm commitments with respect to the impact of our operations on society and the environment. We do so all throughout the medicine life cycle through our EcoDesign by Servier program.
To develop the road map for the program, we used life cycle analysis methodology to assess the environmental aspects of medicines—i.e., through the design, extraction of raw materials, production, distribution, usage and end-of-life disposal.
The program helps to take better account of social and environmental considerations such as climate change, biodiversity and natural resources, in accordance with efficacy and therapeutic safety requirements.
We have also developed the “Green Score” system for use within the Group, which integrates the principles of sustainable chemistry, including ecotoxicity and climate impact. By 2023, 100% of new chemical syntheses will be given a Green Score.
Target set for EcoDesign by Servier
We pledge to integrate eco-design principles to packaging for new brand-name medicines, in accordance with pharmaceutical regulations, between now and 2025.
