Sustainability, a widespread, deep commitment towards industry, people and planet

Thanks to many years of experience on sustainable materials, Bormioli Pharma is able to offer up to ten different low-impact product routes. Coming to recycled materials, in addition to a progressive increase in the share of recycled glass in its production, the company is able to offer plastic containers obtained from polymers from highly selected separate waste collection.

As far as bioplastics are concerned, Bormioli Pharma markets containers made from residual fibers such as sugar cane or corn starch, some of which are completely compostable.

Other solutions are currently being developed and tested, such as the creation of an innovative plastic created from the recovery of carbon emissions, also introducing eco-design guidelines, encouraging less use of virgin materials, simplification of components and enhanced recycling.

Bormioli Pharma has announced an ambitious goal to be the industry catalyst towards more responsible solutions: the company has committed to achieve the goal to use 50% sustainable raw materials, such as recycled plastic, bioplastics and glass from recycled sources, while manufacturing its products by 2025, tripling its current 16% use of materials with low environmental impact.

Innovation, an open, agile model for the evolution of the whole healthcare system

Innovation is an important pillar of the collaborative approach proposed by Bormioli Pharma. For the company, innovation goes well beyond the walls of R&D departments, opening up to the contributions and ideas coming from start-ups, Research Centres, clients, suppliers and end users.

That’s why the company launched a couple of years ago Bormioli Pharma Invents, a program based on an Open Innovation approach. This model relies on some of the main drivers of change in the pharmaceutical primary packaging market: usability, connectivity, traceability and sustainability.

An open innovation approach is revolutionary for the pharma packaging industry. This means combining internal research capabilities assets with external contributors, building collaboration projects and identifying common ways to generate shared value.

Collaboration is the core of this open innovation ecosystem. Bormioli Pharma includes in its network internal and external stakeholders, also relying on specific Innovation Hubs and accelerators to stay on the edge of innovation.

Quality and Safety, essential preconditions for the pharma industry

Bormioli Pharma has adopted a rigorous approach to quality and the quality culture is widespread in the Company. Quality Assurance and Quality Control teams have a strong pharma expertise and Good Manufacturing Practices trainings are held frequently. Other key elements contributing to the quality assurance are a high focus on process control, a qualified supply chain, a continuous technical improvement and support to the regulatory process.
