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 researches, with a focus on surface waters, confirm 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 developing according to our principles.
