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 - Empire II

DCAT’s Research & Benchmarking Review Committee is currently fielding 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.

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?
