The Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Initiative (PSCI) is a group of pharmaceutical and healthcare companies who share a vision of better, social, environmental, and economic outcomes in the communities where people buy. They believe that collectively PSCI members can share knowledge and expertise across our industry to drive complex, global change more effectively than any one organization alone. They have joined forces to promote responsible supply chain management and better business conditions across the industry.
The vision is to establish and promote responsible practices that will continuously improve social, health, safety, and environmental sustainable outcomes for supply chains. This includes:
- Fair and safe work conditions and practices
- Responsible business practices
- Environmental sustainability and efficient use of resources
The mission is to provide members with a forum to establish industry principles that guide ethics, labor, health & safety, environmental sustainability, and management systems practices to support continuous improvement of suppliers’ capabilities.
