Over The Counter 9 May 2023: Progressing The Global Self-Care Industry’s Sustainability Agenda With GSCF’s Padmaja Kamath
In this episode, HBW Insight speaks to the Global Self-Care Federation’s director of regulatory and scientific affairs, Padmaja Kamath, about the organisation’s sustainability work. In 2019, GSCF published its Global Charter for Environmental Sustainability, which represented, Kamath notes, the global consumer healthcare industry’s “first commitment to drive sustainable self-care.” Kamath updates us on the progress of the charter, which calls on GSCF members to pledge to make progress on one or more of three key sustainability areas: plastics and packaging, pharmaceuticals in the environment and CO2 footprint. We dive a little deeper into some specific challenges within these areas, such as recyclable blister packs and supply chain emissions, with Kamath pointing also to an upcoming GSCF webinar on the latter.
