The role of each stakeholder

cita The pharmaceutical sector is responsible for the design and the performance of SIGRE's activity

Pharmaceutical laboratories fund SIGRE’s activity and provide detailed information on the amount and type of packaging placed on the market in order to prepare the Annual Packaging Declaration. They are also responsible for innovating and implementing eco-design measures in medicine packaging to make it more environmentally friendly.



Pharmacists advise, inform and encourage members of the public to deposit packaging and leftover medicines in the Punto SIGRE located within the pharmacy. They are the interface between SIGRE and the public.




Distribution is a key element in the way SIGRE works: reverse logistics, which uses the same channel for collecting the waste products deposited in the Punto SIGRE as it does to bring pharmaceutical products to the pharmacy.
