Mission impossible?

Germany must become more sustainable and climate-friendly. The three pillars of sustainability (ecology, economy and social affairs) now play an important role in all areas of society and the economy. But how should pharmacy work be made more sustainable? Pharmacies are important basic providers which have to be supplied regularly, are open at night and on weekends, and have to cope with courier services. In this respect, the question arises to what extent climate protection can be implemented in the health sector at all.

Proven experts discussed the fact that sustainability doesn’t have to be a contradiction in everyday pharmacy life, citing numerous examples from best practice.
