DCAT Research & Benchmarking Report: Supply Chain Sustainability

Executive Summary Presentation

Date/Time: Monday, March 21, 2022 - 11:30 AM to 12:15 PM
Location: InterContinental Barclay - Grand Ballroom

Earlier this year, DCAT’s Research & Benchmarking Committee fielded a survey to examine the driving factors surrounding sustainability and the progress being made towards sustainability in the supply chain (including manufacturing, packaging, and logistics) of the bio/pharma industry. DCAT Member Companies can now access the final complimentary report as a value-added member benefit.

For this program, learn of the key findings from the study and gain further insights from a panel discussion of select members from the DCAT Research & Benchmarking Committee.


  • Jim Miller, Consultant & Content Advisor, Drug, Chemical & Associated Technologies Association (DCAT)
  • Panelist; Ken Seufert, CEO, JRS Pharma
  • Panelist; Dave McCarthy, Senior Director, Sourcing and Enterprise Services, Pfizer
  • Panelist; Jin Seok Hur, General Manager, Novasep LLC

Program Highlights

The study examines the following:

  • Have Bio/Pharma companies articulated clear sustainability goals for themselves? For their suppliers? If so, what are the main objectives?
  • Have Bio/Pharma companies set specific, measurable targets for their supply chain and suppliers? If so, how are they measuring them?
  • Are Bio/Pharma companies requiring their suppliers to meet those targets or just encouraging them to do so? How much time have suppliers been given to meet the targets?
  • Have sustainability objectives and targets been integrated into supplier qualification processes? Supplier performance reviews? Regular supplier meetings?

This study is part of DCAT Research & Benchmarking, a complimentary, value-added member benefit providing in-depth studies that examine the crucial issues impacting the pharmaceutical manufacturing value chain and the pharma customer-supplier relationship.
