Patheon Cincinnati Regional Operations Recognized for Green Business Initiatives

DURHAM, NC--(Marketwired - February 24, 2015) - Patheon, a leading global provider of high-quality drug development and delivery solutions to the pharmaceutical and biopharma sectors, will be honored as a finalist for the Green Business Award by the Cincinnati Business Courier for its outstanding leadership in sustainable practices, at the Sixth Annual Green Business Awards Program on Thursday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m., at the Sharonville Convention Center in Cincinnati. Patheon is one of several organizations to be honored for sustainable buildings, practices, products and advocacy.

"We are thrilled to be recognized for our green development initiatives," said Nicholas Buschur, executive director and general manager at the Cincinnati site. "Our sustainability practices are in direct support of our commitment to provide customers with industry-leading, innovative solutions."

Patheon's Cincinnati facility has established a reputation within the community as a leader in sustainable, green initiatives through the use of ecological manufacturing solutions and waste reduction initiatives.

The site opened in 2003, in Reading, Ohio, and is dedicated to pharmaceutical development services and manufacturing. More than 600 employees participate in recycling programs, ensuring no materials go to waste, and also maintain a landscaped campus in which grass and debris are composted. Approximately 1,500 tons of solid waste has been diverted from landfills as a result of the Cincinnati site's recycling and compost programs since 2011. In reflection of Patheon's commitment to sustainability, the site will continue to evaluate reduction opportunities to further minimize negative impact on the environment.
