Greenhouse gas emissions

What’s more alarming, is that pharma industry is one of the major CO2 emitters, surpassing even automotive industry[1]. Pharma companies have intensive supply chains, sourcing ingredients from all over the world and distributing drugs globally (though there are shifts to locate closer to the customers, with subsidiaries in the countries where drugs are sold).  Some pharma companies make efforts to optimize their supply chains to reduce transportation, but we need a bigger shift towards green operations[2].
