For Environment

Society’s awareness and concern regarding environmental issues continues to grow, as does the technical ability to detect substances of synthetic or natural origin in our surroundings. Recent research,  with a focus  on surface waters, confirms the presence of low levels of pharmaceuticals in the  environment. The natural excretion of medicines   by patients is recognized as the main source of pharmaceuticals entering the environment. Improper disposal of medicines and effluents from manufacturing facilities can result in pharmaceutical substances entering the  environment as well, however  the  overall impact through human use  is much larger. GPI shares society’s desire to protect  the environment  and is taking steps to minimize the environmental impact of its activities and  products over  their  lifecycle.  We also  work  with  our  third party suppliers to ensure they are guided by our principles.
