Sea level rise due to global heating is already having a severe impact on many communities worldwide. Its progression is difficult to predict but is likely to impact many critical parts of the medicines supply chain. Here the engineering challenges presented by sea level rise are explored.

This is one of a series of webinars on the subject of sustainability in the pharmaceutical industry. It is being organised jointly with IMechE and ISPE, being hosted by IChemE. The programme is aiming to: increase participants awareness of issues, solutions and techniques in making pharma more sustainable; increase awareness of sustainability in pharma; and provide a forum for debating the issue.
