General information

In the run up to COP26, where we will see the UK at the core of the United Nations’ sustainability agenda, we are delighted to announce that our Foresight Committee will be hosting a live panel discussion that will bring together industry leaders and experts to discuss what sustainability really means for the pharmaceutical and healthcare communications industry.

Through a panel of speakers and open discussions with audience members, the educational and informative session will cover:

  • What the pharmaceutical industry is doing and needs to do in relation to its sustainability agenda
  • The reputation and communication needs, challenges, and opportunities for the pharmaceutical industry in sustainability
  • How pharmaceutical company goals will affect communication agencies as businesses in their supply chains

The panel includes environmental experts representing agency, industry, and media perspectives:

  • Jaclyn Kaminski, VP, Global Director of Sustainability, McCann Worldgroup: Jaclyn is responsible for embedding sustainability throughout McCann Worldgroup’s global business strategy; her remit includes leading McCann Worldgroup’s Net Zero transition, developing an internal sustainability education strategy, global partnership strategy, and client engagement.
