Over the last 40 years, sustainable development has emerged as a new paradigm of development to maintain the human-ecosystem equilibrium, which requires the integration of environment, economic, human society, politics and cultural aspects. Indena, a leader in the development of active pharmaceutical ingredients of botanical origin, is deeply committed to the development of a completely sustainable model, including the creation of sustainable factories and monitoring of the supply chain to respect social and ethical aspects. In line with this mission, Indena has launched multiple projects, such as the Boswella serrata Project in India, the Terminalia Sericea Project in Tanzania, and especially the “school for everybody” in Madagascar. This project, started in 2015, has been designed to help the local populations of Alaotra Mangoro, one of the main regions that cultivate and harvest the medicinal herb Centella asiatica, by providing teaching material, training and infrastructures. Thanks to its commitment, Indena aims to make the whole industry progressively more credible, reliable and risk-free, becoming a model of safety and reliability worldwide.
