Sustainable, biodegradable and Eco- Friendly Packaging: A Paradigm Shift in Healthcare Packaging

Sustainable packaging is defined as packaging that is safe for individuals, as well as the environment, while meeting all requirements for performance, cost and ease of fabrication. Further, the product should be specially designed in order to minimize usage of raw material and optimize energy use.

The term sustainability is derived from the Latin word sustinere, which means to hold or support. The continuously growing pipeline of pharmaceutical drug candidates has inadvertently led to an increase in the demand for product packaging solutions. Further, the gradual shift of the healthcare industry from the one-drug-treats-all model to a personalized approach, coupled to the growing complexities associated with modern pharmacological interventions, has compelled packaging providers to identify innovative sustainable packaging solutions.
