Sai Life Sciences joins the ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable
Sai Life Sciences today announced its induction to the ACS Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable (ACS-GCIPR) as an ‘Associate Member’. The company has been committed to increasing the adoption of Green Chemistry principles in its process development and instituted its inaugural ‘Green Chemistry Awards’ last year, to recognize and celebrate teams that make notable contributions towards greener processes. Joining the ACS-GCIPR will allow the company to interact with large pharma and other CDMOs to further share and develop best practices in Green chemistry and sustainability
Welcoming Sai Life Sciences into its fold, an ACS-GCIPR spokesperson said, “The ACS GCI Roundtable is delighted to welcome Sai Life Sciences into its membership. As one of a few CDMO companies in our membership, their enthusiasm in catalysing the integration of green chemistry and engineering in the pharmaceutical industry is another heartening sign that adoption of Green Chemistry principles is indeed gaining momentum. We look forward to their active participation in the important work of the roundtable.”
Established in 2005 by the American Chemical Society’s Green Chemistry Institute, the Pharmaceutical Roundtable’s activities are driven by the shared belief that green chemistry and engineering is imperative for business and environmental sustainability. Its member companies come together to catalyse innovative approaches to improving process efficiency and product quality through green chemistry and engineering.

The company also received 5-Star rating for Excellence in EHS Practices at the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) South awards 2019.
