Envirotainer Academy was recognized because it provides free education to all stakeholders of the biopharma industry including Forwarders, Carriers, GHAs and Manufacturers, to help mitigate risks within the cold chain.
Educating the industry
Catherine Taylor, Academy Manager of Envirotainer, said, “We are delighted to receive this award from the BSMA in recognition of the Envirotainer Academy and our commitment to training. By offering free, accessible training and working closely with industry stakeholders, our goal is to improve knowledge and expertise throughout the cold chain.”
Envirotainer is a leading advocate of Good Distribution Practices and the largest provider of free education in the industry. In 2013, the online Envirotainer Academy was launched to increase educational opportunities for the industry. To further demonstrate their commitment, Envirotainer offers these courses for free.
Since its launch, there are now over 13,500 learners and 270 companies using the Academy to train their staff. The Academy currently offers basic and advanced level online courses in multiple languages and further supports training by offering instructor-led training, online videos, training aids, and posters to promote best practices.
The Bio Supply Management Alliance, which organizes the Conference, was born of the need to create a worldwide community of operations and supply chain management leaders and professionals in the biotech, biopharma, and biomedical device industries. Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, home to more than 400 bio firms, the Alliance provides a forum for collaboration, learning and best practice sharing of practitioners, executives and thought leaders in these uniquely demanding industries.
