PSCI feature in the Danish climate partnership roadmap for the Life Science and Biotech sector

PSCI feature in the Danish climate partnership roadmap for the Life Science and Biotech sector

20 Apr 2021

In 2019 the Danish government launched 13 industry-specific climate partnerships to enable sector-wide collaboration towards achieving the country’s goal of reducing their GHG emissions by 70%. Various PSCI member companies in Denmark participated in the Life Sciences and Biotech sector partnership and through discussion successfully included the PSCI Principles into the sector-wide recommendations related to supplier codes of conduct, highlighting those Principles specifically linked to positive environmental outcomes and reducing GHG emissions.

We are very pleased that the Principles have been included in the sector recommendations roadmap that was shared with the Danish government in March of this year. This is a fantastic recognition of the power of the PSCI Principles, collaboration, and sharing best practice with peers. You can find out more about the Danish government’s climate partnerships here and read the recommendations that include the PSCI Principles here.
