PSCI's first ever virtual Spring Meeting

PSCI's first ever virtual Spring Meeting

15 May 2020

This week, the PSCI held its first ever virtual Spring Meeting, reaching more members than ever! Over 140 individuals from our 44 member companies and partners connected from 22 countries around the world to join us for a day of compelling plenaries from experts, updates about our recent achievements and upcoming projects, and interactive discussions on pressing issues.

We heard about challenges and opportunities for the PSCI from our Chair Caroline O’Brien, hosted a rich session on climate change and tackling scope 3 emissions with contributions from AstraZeneca, Carnstone, and a lively panel discussion with colleagues from the Pharmaceutical Environment Group (PEG). Novartis delivered a thought-provoking talk on Blockchain, and PSCI Vice-Chair Manjit Singh introduced the upcoming PSCI Strategy Review, not to mention the regular updates from our fantastic committee chairs.

Finally, we were honoured to welcome Professor Sir David King, founder of the Centre for Climate Repair at Cambridge University and former Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government, who shared his experience advising on the foot-and-mouth epidemic and climate-related issues in a fascinating opening talk.

All sessions were recorded and are available to members for replay on the event’s platform.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this first virtual meeting and we hope to see you all again very soon – online or in person!

Launch: 'The Link for Suppliers'

20 Apr 2020

With our supply chain under pressure and with limitations on travel likely to continue, delivering our activities virtually is now more important than ever.

We are therefore delighted to announce the launch of The Link for Suppliers, our online platform and community for suppliers.

This online platform will connect, engage, and advance suppliers around responsible supply chain issues, helping them access the PSCI’s tools, resources and training, and to engage in active dialogue.

The Link for Suppliers works in a similar way to The Link for Members, with content specially tailored to suppliers. This means that every time a supplier logs into The Link (which we hope will be often), they’ll find news, activities and resources relevant to them, building awareness of the PSCI Principles and progressing their responsible supply chain knowledge. Importantly, they’ll also gain access to their own audit dashboard, giving visibility and control to suppliers, and ultimately encouraging wider, more frequent and faster sharing of audits. Finally, The Link is the best way for suppliers to stay up-to-date on updates to our SAQ and Audit tools.

For more information on The Link for Suppliers, please read our announcement (available here).

Engaging suppliers is vital and we encourage PSCI members to support in the following ways:

  • Letting suppliers know The Link has launched: A template email (available to members here) for members to adapt and send to suppliers. It highlights the platform's benefits, and some of the useful resources and engaging content available on The Link.
  • Making The Link part of other supplier communications: Building it into messages and key documents such as the Code of Conduct, encouraging suppliers to use and engage with the platform.

We thank members for their support.

On behalf of the Board and Communications Committee and with thanks to the Pharmaceuticals in the Environment (PiE)/ Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) sub-team for their expert input, we are sharing the recently adopted PSCI Position Statement on PiE & AMR. It has been written to highlight the relevance of the PiE issue along the supply chain, to articulate PSCI's position on this high profile topic, and to help answer stakeholder inquiries. It includes an overview of all PSCI resources on PiE and AMR-related issues.
