SkyCell Annual Sustainability Report 2023

Our Vision

Paving the way for Sustainable Pharma Logistics

The pharmaceutical industry’s reliance on air freight for logistics contributes to its substantial carbon footprint, with 71% of healthcare’s global emissions attributed to its supply chain. Inefficient packaging in the pharma cold chain increases landfilled waste, need for resources and overall emissions through spoiled medicine.

At SkyCell we pioneer advanced hardware and software solutions for secure global transportation of temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals, aiming to lead the industry towards zero medicine loss and zero CO2 emissions. Our commitment extends to guiding customers in emissions reduction through logistics analysis and leveraging proprietary knowledge.

Sustainability management

Among the top 1%

SkyCell’s commitment to sustainability covers not only products and services but also internal management practices. Since 2021, we have assessed our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) management through the EcoVadis rating system.

Achieving the Platinum Medal in 2024, positioning SkyCell among the top 1% of all assessed companies within the same category. This endorsement by EcoVadis is accompanied by our achievement to enable a typical SkyCell customer to avoid over 60.000 tons of CO2 in 2023, equivalent to taking more than 14.000 cars off the road. 


Sustainable for you and the planet

At SkyCell we embrace the circular economy principle. By managing the full lifecycle of our solutions, we reduce landfill and save resources. We use durable and recyclable materials in the production stage, and we design and maintain our containers, so they are reusable for dozens of shipments. 

Our hybrid containers, maintain inner temperatures for up to 270 hours, all while prioritizing sustainability. SkyCell’s containers are reused numerous times before being dismantled for reuse of parts or recycling. Featuring lightweight, durable materials and an easy-to-repair design ensuring longer lifecycles.  

The exceptional reliability, the reduced volumetric weight, and a remarkable CO2 reduction throughout the logistics lifecycle, including reverse logistics, position the hybrid containers as a prime choice for environmentally conscious pharma transport. 

We analysed the impact of our 1500X container in two transport scenarios, read more about it.
