ESG is a crucial driver for capturing opportunities and remaining ahead of vulnerabilities.

How ESG is improving operational excellence in clinical trials?

ESG can address some of the biggest health-related challenges worldwide including access to healthcare. It can simplify the patient journey and extend accessibility across more diverse patient populations while safeguarding scientific integrity, which is critical to overall drug development.

The ESG initiatives can maximise trial efficiency through protocol automation and improve social elements by making it easier for patients to join clinical trials, irrespective of their location, mobility, and economic issues. It can help in improving the carbon footprint of pharmaceutical companies by various methods such as reducing the need for patients to travel.
