We know sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our market as a whole. Running CPhI & P-MEC China gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impacts environmentally, socially and economically in our host city. We want to make our event more responsible and play a role in helping our markets improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in our sector.

Our Three Aims:

Our Charity Support

We are proud to announce International Medical Corps as CPhI & P-MEC China’s official charity partner. International Medical Corps is a global humanitarian non‑profit organisation that provides relief, healthcare, clinics and training to bring medical services and infrastructure to areas that need it most. International Medical Corps is a perfect fit for the event, and we’re very proud to support their vital work.

CPhI & P-MEC China is part of Informa Markets and the Informa Group. Sustainability at Informa focuses on the long term impacts we have on customers, colleagues, the communities we work in and the environment. Many of our stakeholders are clearly telling us that sustainability (social, economic and environmental) is something that is no longer a nice to have but a necessary part of any event. We want to make sure we’re meeting those expectations and we believe that being sustainable is the right thing to do. We also recognise that it’s not just about the way we produce our events and products but recognizing that we have a role to play in providing a space to work in partnership together with our markets to inspire the sustainable development of the industries we serve.  This is an ongoing process for us and we’re looking for ideas of how we can improve.
