We partner with pharmaceutical clients to help them address global supply chain disruptions, expand manufacturing capacity requirements, navigate changing regulations, and increase focus on ESG goals.

With over 30 years of pharmaceutical experience, we combine engineering, science, planning, design, economics, and execution to achieve our clients’ ambitions.

As the global pharmaceutical industry continues to grow, decisionmakers face challenges like ever-changing regulations, global supply chain issues, and increasing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) expectations.
Ramboll delivers engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) solutions to pharmaceutical and biotech clients worldwide. We work with pharmaceutical companies, their suppliers, and stakeholders to define and implement strategies for ESG, climate resilience, regulatory compliance, health and safety, stewardship, circularity, biodiversity, waste, water, energy, and other facility issues.
Environmental programmes
Through our multidisciplinary platform, we help pharmaceutical and biotech clients around the world address some of their most challenging environmental issues. This includes contaminants and pharmaceuticals in the environment (PIE), air quality, compliance, waste management, toxicology, and product safety and stewardship. We help you understand and manage the impacts of activities and products so you can respond to business, regulatory, or legal challenges effectively.
Decontamination, demolition, and repurposing
We are uniquely qualified to deliver the most technically challenging decontamination, demolition, and repurposing solutions for pharmaceutical and biotech clients around the world. Having worked on more than 200 sites and over 400 million square feet (37,000,000+ square metres), we help clients with master planning, design, environmental issues, implementation, and redevelopment and repurposing.
Tackle sustainability challenges
Whether you are driven by regulations, operational efficiencies, consumer differentiation, customer expectation, employee aspirations and stewardship commitments, we can help to align your sustainability objectives with business goals. We assist each step of the way, from strategising to implementation, to add value to your business and support where possible to make your goals a reality.

Trusted advisor through the project lifecycle

  • Environmental programmes
  • Decontamination, demolition, and repurposing
  • Water and wastewater management
  • Tackle sustainability challenges
  • Process manufacturing and area improvement

Water and wastewater management

Water is critical to reliably operate pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. Such operations require high-quality water supplies and treatment for production. Comprehensive wastewater expertise is required to manage significant organic loadings and other constituents of potential concern such as active pharmaceutical ingredients, emerging contaminants, and micro-pollutant endocrine disrupting chemicals.
Our experts are trusted by clients around the world to address local water and climate challenges, having worked across the water cycle from water resources and supply, processing, and treatment, to discharge and water quality protection.
