Astellas, Eisai, Daiichi Sankyo, and Takeda Partner to Reduce Environmental Burden in Pharmaceutical Packaging
Astellas Pharma, Eisai, Daiichi Sankyo, and Takeda Pharmaceutical said they would work together to make pharmaceutical packaging less harmful to the environment.
Under the agreement, the four companies will collaborate to increase the use of sustainable pharmaceutical packaging by disseminating information on technologies like compact packaging, recycled packaging materials, and recyclable packaging materials, as well as more eco-friendly alternatives like blister packs made of biomass-based plastic instead of plastic derived from petroleum.
Astellas, Eisai, Daiichi Sankyo, and Takeda want to ensure that this collaboration is good for society and that business activities are in line with the global environment.
In the future, the four companies want to invite more companies to join them in reducing their impact on the environment.
