Pharma in China and India: Market-Specific Social Risks and Opportunities

Emerging markets are increasingly pivotal in the growth of the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical companies operating in these markets, whether global or domestic players, are exposed to market-specific social risks that affect public health and may also pose material financial risks.

Sustainalytics and guests discussed the material social risks facing both global and local players in the pharmaceuticals industry. The discussion focused mainly on operations in China and India, which are key growth markets for the industry.
