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.

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.
