The Verdict

Datwyler is shortlisted in our Environmental Impact category in the 2021 Excellence Awards for various initiatives it has taken to reduce its carbon footprint. Principal among these was as a founding member of the Alliance to Zero initiative, which brings together eight companies from across the pharmaceutical supply chain in an effort to comply with a target of net zero emissions by 2030.

The company has already made strides towards this goal transitioning a number of its production plants to renewable electricity including those in Pregnana, Montegaldella, Viadanica, and Karlsbad-Itterbach. With this and other moves the company suggests it has reduced emissions by 12,200 tonnes per year from 2021 and that 40% of its total electricity consumption now comes from renewable energy sources.
