CPHI Podcast Series: An insight into the Chief Sustainability Officer

In the April episode of the CPHI Podcast Series we have a focus on sustainability, where Digital Editor Lucy Chard finds out what it means to be a Chief Sustainability Officer in the pharmaceutical industry from Nic Hunt, Global Head of Sustainability at Nelipak Healthcare Packaging

Nelipak Healthcare Packaging is a leading global manufacturer of rigid and flexible packaging solutions for medical device, diagnostic, pharmaceutical drug delivery and other demanding applications.

Nic Hunt is excited by the opportunities for materials science to make the world safer, healthier and give a better quality of life. Nic feels lucky to be involved in materials from paper and polymers to carbon fiber, he has been asked to lead divisional functions and businesses across North America and Europe for Berry Global, Amcor, Jabil & Jay H Ge. He moved to focus on sustainability from a corporate strategy leadership role and thinks building a sustainable economy as probably the biggest business challenge we currently face.

In the podcast we discuss what it means to be in the role of a Chief Sustainability Officer, how the role is set to develop along with more established sustainability teams. The role they provide is so integral to the overall health of a pharma company, the pharma supply chain and subsequently the health of the planet. Hunt's optimism about the industry making real changes to how they work and meeting goals such as Net Zero really comes across, with the outlook for the future of sustainability in pharma a bright one.
