The Coalition for Sustainable Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices (CSPM) is a working group of pharmaceutical and medical device companies, who, with NHS England want to enable the transition to more sustainable healthcare products and services. We do this through promoting best practice and developing sustainability tools and guidelines to reduce the environmental impact of our products. CSPM is committed to make significant progress in understanding and implementing changes that will lead to more sustainable healthcare practices because the implications of climate change and environmental degradation pose a risk to healthcare systems and crucially, to human
CSPM serve as a catalyst to reduce our carbon impact across the product lifecycle through the use of sector specific carbon foot printing guidelines developed by the coalition. We also explore better ways of delivering health outcomes for all as a means of addressing climate change and the
impacts associated with it.
