Pharma’s ecopill: Sustainable packaging as a new recipe for the planet | News

Pharmaceutical (pharmaceutical) companies are increasingly using sustainable packaging materials to replace traditional materials, with the aim of reducing their environmental footprint. This move is driven by both regulatory requirements and environmental, social and governance objectives.

Merck Life Science has replaced single-use glass bottles with reusable steel drums for chemical transport. This change reduces CO2 emissions and eases the logistical burden of waste processing for customers.

“This shift in the Indian industry is largely driven by regulations and customer demands, especially from major importers in Europe and the US,” said Atul Barjatya, director, head of sales, solvents, inorganics, safety and essentials, and diagnostics.
