This week was very special for us at Viatris. Over the past days, we have engaged with our European stakeholders as part of #EUGreenWeek 2021, which has been focused on the EU’s Zero Pollution Ambition. And June 5 marks the celebration of World Environment Day – the United Nations’ day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action to protect our environment. Environmental and human health are interconnected. Protecting the environment is critical to our mission to empower people worldwide to live healthier, at every stage of life.
