Making Strides in the Responsible Manufacturing of Antibiotics

SOURCE: Pfizer


Pfizer is committed to ensuring that the manufacturing, use and disposal of our products, including antibiotics, does not adversely affect human health or the environment. Core to this commitment is taking action to assess and reduce, as needed, the risk of antibiotics in wastewater from Pfizer and supplier manufacturing facilities

Responsible antibiotic manufacturing practices are part of Pfizer’s Pharmaceuticals in the Environment (PiE) Program. In 2018, our PiE program continued to focus on wastewaters from antibiotic manufacturing operations through the completion of environmental risk assessments. These assessments have been completed for all internal antibiotic manufacturing sites and all external suppliers in India and China; assessments are underway for all other antibiotic suppliers globally. As a result, Pfizer has enhanced, and continues to enhance, operational practices at both our own and supplier facilities. At some locations, further assessment, including sampling, is underway. In 2018, we also partnered with technical consultants to explore additional antibiotic wastewater treatment options. This year, Pfizer also continued our leading role as part of the Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Industry Alliance manufacturing group (the Alliance Manufacturing Group). In the infographic below, learn more about progress made in 2018 with respect to AMR Industry Alliance commitments.
