Sustainability is at the heart of Ziccum’s strategic, business and operational focus. We support the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals and believe that our technology could ultimately play a role in driving them forward. With a focus on 6 key goals, we aim to place the UN SDGs at the heart of everything we do, and how we do it.

Increase global immunization coverage

We believe that innovation in vaccine formulation, and particularly thermostability, can play an important role in increasing coverage of both current - and next-generation vaccines.

Decrease energy consumption during manufacturing

We believe that ambient drying would not be a carbon-intenisve unit of production for vaccines and biopharmaceuticals, and could enable significant energy reductions.

Pandemic preparedness – ramp up vaccine manufacturing capacity

Exigency to meet future challenges & to prevent interruption of existing childhood immunization programmes during pandemic times

Equitable access to vaccines

Not only a moral imperative – the economic cost for the absence of global vaccine access is higher than the cost for ensuring it

Crack the vaccine cold chain

New more thermostable vaccines with fewer cryogenic freeze- and cold-chain requirements could help drive fewer carbon emissions from the pharmaceutical industry.

Global cooperation on vaccine innovation

No single organisation on its own can transform vaccine formulation and production enough to reduce cold chain dependency. Industry cooperation is key. Ziccum looks to actively partner with innovative partners in vaccine formulation.
