In the run up to COP 26, KTN is holding a webinar: Net Zero in Medicines Manufacturing: Measuring and Reporting Carbon Footprint – What you need to know!

Webinar recording and slides are now available

Find the slides here.


The obligations around reporting carbon outputs are becoming increasingly challenging for all sizes of companies, as global net zero target deadlines draw ever closer and customers introduce sustainable procurement directives.

This free to attend webinar is aimed at medicinesmanufacturers to learn about systems and tools for measuring and reporting on Scope 1, 2 and 3 carbon outputs.  Manufacturers of medical technologies and organisations involved in supply chain are also very welcome.

This is particularly applicable to SMEs who want to find out more about carbon reporting structures and tools from organisations who have established systems.

This webinar will feature presentations and discussion from GSK, AstraZeneca and Pfizer on reporting and science-based targets, and why they are important, and what are the external demands.  We will feature practical application case studies on Scope 1 & 2, and explore the challenges and opportunities to decarbonise the whole value chain (Scope 3).  There will also be a presentation from NHS on forthcoming supplier guidelines.

The webinar is hosted by KTN Medicines Manufacturing Challenge Community in partnership with Innovate UKMedicines Manufacturing Industry Partnership and Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry.
