Chiesi supports the São Paulo Declaration on Planetary Health

Date: 27/10/2021


Chiesi is proud to have joined the São Paulo Declaration on Planetary Health, an unprecedented, urgent call to adopt a new holistic approach to the health and well-being of the people and the planet.

The Declaration, authored by the Planetary Health Alliance, a global consortium hosted within the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and the University of São Paulo, has been signed by over 250 organizations from more than 47 countries representing all sectors of society and it has been published online in The Lancet. Chiesi is the only pharmaceutical company that has endorsed the document.

It encourages everyone to play a role and clearly lays out instructions for how each person and group can contribute to the Great Transition: a deep, rapid, structural shift in how we live that optimizes the health and well-being of all people and the planet. Among the 19 stakeholder groups featured in the Declaration, a sample of what the planetary health community calls for includes:

  • Companies to invest in and implement plans for net-zero, Nature-positive businesses.
  • Governments to center planetary health in international, national, and local policies, recovery plans, and budgets, specifically in post COVID-19 plans and economic and environmental policies.
  • The health sector to reorient all aspects of health systems toward planetary health – from procurement, energy sources, healthcare efficiency, to waste reduction.
  • Media to tell the stories of those who are protecting Nature and fighting for justice and equity, hold those to account who are damaging the planet’s natural systems, and fight infodemics of misinformation.


By Endorsing the declaration, Chiesi had also the opportunity to emphasize its commitment to become carbon neutral by 2030 for our scope 1 and 2 emissions and by 2035 for our scope 3 emissions in line with our mission of improving the quality of human life, operating in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
