The incorporation of sustainable practices in the pharmaceutical industry has matured greatly over recent years, what key differences have you noticed in the last year regarding significant developments?

“Pharmaceutical industry being one of the key pillars of healthcare has been in the forefront of environmental sustainability. Over the last year, there has been a lot of focus on packaging and devices on making it either recyclable or reusable or reduce towards sustainability.”

What do you see as the greatest challenge to overcome in increasing sustainability and circular economy for drug delivery devices in the pharmaceutical industry at the moment?

“There are different aspects of sustainability, some are more difficult to achieve than others being in healthcare industry as well as current regulations. For example there are several advisories prohibiting use of recycled materials and for good reasons.”

What are your thoughts on the developing regulatory environment for circular economy in the pharmaceutical industry and how is this currently impacting your role?

“Historically packaging & devices focus was on FDA and equivalent regulatory bodies, however over the years due to new environment regulations the scope has expanded to consider sustainability aspects as well and maintaining the balance between them.”

What current hot topic will you be addressing in your presentation and what would you say makes it relevant to 2022?

“I will be speaking on sustainability opportunities in packaging & devices focusing on regulations.”

How would you like to see the drug delivery device development industry developing for a more sustainable future and where do you think the biggest growth area will be in 2022?

Access to drug device is still limited and there is an opportunity for sustainable growth in this area towards improving healthcare. While doing the same, we need to take sustainability into consideration and the industry is moving in that direction.

What attracts you to attend the Sustainability for Drug Delivery Devices Live 2022 Focus Day and are there any presentations you are particularly looking forward to?

“The emphasis of the conference is Sustainability and is something what the industry is focusing and look forward to the deliberations on subject.”
