About the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Group
The Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative (PSCI) is a group of major pharmaceutical companies that formed to support pharmaceutical suppliers to operate in a manner consistent with industry expectations about ethics, labor, health and safety, environment and management systems.
As a first step, the PSCI created the Pharmaceutical Industry Principles for Responsible Supply Chain Management ("the Principles"). These Principles, address five areas of responsible business practices throughout the pharmaceutical industry's supply chain: ethics, labor, health and safety, environment and management systems.
The vision of the PSCI is that through the application of these Principles better social, economic and environmental outcomes will result for all those involved in the pharmaceutical supply chain. This includes improved conditions for workers, economic development and a cleaner environment for local communities.
As an industry, we will focus our efforts on positive social and environmental change, and building supply chain capacity. We intend to implement a process that solicits feedback from stakeholders outside of our companies as well.
