Sustainability issues in the pharmaceutical industry are now more relevant than ever. Pharmaceutical Information Centre brings together Nordic pharmaceutical industry actors to discuss environmental impacts of medicines.

Nordic Medicines Sustainability Forum 2021 covers a wide range of stages in the life cycle of a medicine, from manufacturer to the patient and disposal of the medicine. The event will present cases how pharmaceutical companies respond to the challenges posed by the environmental impacts of medicines and what issues need to be considered at different stages of a medicine's life cycle.
