“Decarbonize Pharma Now!” Banner

1. About

I have created the following protest banner demanding to decarbonize the pharma industry now. The banner contains the logo of the Paris Climate Agreement, the required reduction rate for carbon emission intensity of the global pharma industry following the Paris Climate Agreement according to Belkhir and Elmeligi (2019), and a statement on the ethical implications of developing, producing and consuming drugs using fossil fuels meaning that “curing some means killing others”.
