New Release | White Paper on Green Air Pharma Logistics Project, Highlighting Sustainability Index for Airport-to-Airport Transportation

Pharma.Aero unveils the White Paper marking the completion of its first in the series of projects delving into sustainability challenges within healthcare supply chain logistics.  The document showcases the findings of the Green Air Pharma Logistics Project with a Focus on Green Lane, and introduces a comprehensive index – the Lane Sustainability Readiness Index (LSRI) – to measure the sustainability readiness of stakeholders across the airport-to-airport supply chain.

The GAPL Project was a collaborative effort aimed at identifying key quantitative and qualitative indicators defining a green air lane, involving various stakeholders along the supply chain, including life science manufacturers, airports, airlines, cargo handlers, and solution providers.

The project proposes the Lane Sustainability Readiness Index as a tool to support life science companies and freight forwarders to integrate sustainability considerations into freight procurement and lane assessment processes, as part of their efforts in achieving Scope 3 targets. Additionally, it is aimed at supporting freight forwarders and airlines in developing low-emissions products and value propositions aligned with their customers’ sustainability goals.

“The decarbonization of air transportation is a multifaceted journey,” remarks Ms Jaisey Yip, project lead, Vice President of the Cargo Business Division at Changi Airport Group – a strategic member of Pharma.Aero. “Beyond the life science industry, the Lane Sustainability Readiness Index (LSRI) is cross-sectoral and aims to provide value to all stakeholders within the air cargo value chain.”

Ms Yip adds, “The GAPL project paves the way for Pharma.Aero and the industry to explore new avenues towards more sustainable air logistics. We anticipate the LSRI’s application beyond the airport-to-airport boundary.”

Sara Van Lerberghe, Pharma.Aero Projects Coordinator, emphasizes the project’s collaborative methods, leveraging the collective expertise of Pharma.Aero’s global membership: “We commend all our members and partners for their invaluable contributions to this project. Their dedication was pivotal in acquiring firsthand insights into industry sustainability objectives and identifying essential indicators for evaluating lane sustainability readiness.”

Pharma.Aero acknowledges that sustainability is a rapidly evolving concept and remains committed to updating the LSRI to meet the industry’s evolving needs. The project also outlines potential spin-off projects aimed at achieving sustainable air pharma logistics, including developing a centralized digital platform and expanding beyond airport-to-airport scope.

Special thanks to all our Pharma.Aero members and partners contributing to this forward-thinking project.
