Recipharm presents Annual International Environmental Award

Recipharm today presents its Annual International Environmental Award to Professor Klaus Kümmerer, Freiburg University, Germany, at an award ceremony staged at the Swedish National Pharmaceutical Congress.

Recipharm’s International Environmental Award is annually awarded for the best environmental performance or environmental innovation within the pharmaceutical industry or the academic world.

His highly recognised research, presented in numerous peer reviewed publications and his book "Pharmaceuticals in the Environment" has not only given new and important insights and environmental knowledge, but also presented sustainable solutions to society and the pharmaceutical industry."
