TU-105: Using LCM to create shared value through healthcare and pharmaceutical supply chains
Every year, global health systems are consuming more products (including pharmaceuticals) due to increasing populations, aging communities and improved healthcare services. There is an urgent need for health systems to undergo transformative change and decouple resource consumption from health provision.
The pharmaceutical industry accounts for 10% of European GDP and reinvests up to 40% of total expenditure in R&D, which is one of the highest contributors to innovation from any single industry. Whether this innovation model promotes the development of sustainable products will be a key discussion topic in this session.
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a promising methodology being used to understand the environmental sustainability of products. Already there are many examples of its application across the product life cycle to produce innovative pharmaceuticals, medical devices and healthcare services. This session aims to showcase real industry examples of how LCA is applied to pharmaceuticals and medical devices, and highlight the significant opportunities that exist to reduce the environmental impact of healthcare. Furthermore, submissions on green procurement, sustainable healthcare service design and embedding Life Cycle Management (LCM) in end-to-end value chains are welcome.
