Big Phar­ma unites to help boost re­new­able en­er­gy for sup­ply chains in Chi­na and In­dia

The Sus­tain­able Mar­kets Ini­tia­tive (SMI) Health Sys­tems Task Force — a col­lec­tive of bio­phar­ma and glob­al health com­pa­nies — an­nounced Wednes­day that it is in “ad­vanced dis­cus­sions” with Chi­na and In­dia-based en­er­gy providers for them to bol­ster re­new­able en­er­gy ac­cess for sup­ply chains.

This col­lab­o­ra­tion is the first time bio­phar­ma com­pa­nies have worked to­geth­er on such an ini­tia­tive in Chi­na and In­dia, which make up 50% of the ma­te­ri­als for med­i­cines, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease. The ini­tia­tive, which was re­vealed be­fore COP28 starts on Thurs­day in Dubai, is a move to­ward glob­al net ze­ro health sys­tems.
