This project provides a broadly applicable framework for instituting sustainable water-use strategies and water valuation approaches in the pharmaceutical industry. The primary goal was to identify strategies and develop guidelines to assist Merck & Co., Inc. in achieving sustainable water use at manufacturing sites around the world. The results of this project include a decision-making support tool applicable to any pharmaceutical company seeking to minimize its impacts on local environmental and water resources.
