The International Pharmaceutical Aerosol Consortium

Who We Are

In 1989, IPAC was formed in response to the mandate of the Montreal Protocol. The mandate was designed to combat substances that deplete the ozone layer and address the contribution of inhalation products to climate change. 


The consortium strives to ensure global environmental policies that are relevant to inhaled therapies, are both patient-centric and appropriately balance patient care and sustainability efforts and objectives.

What We Do

IPAC is a consortium at the forefront of inhaled products and environmental policy issues.  The coalition is comprised of AstraZeneca, Boehringer Ingleheim, Chiesi Farmaceutici, GSK, Kindeva, Organon, Cipla and Teva. 

IPAC engages in policy issues around the world.  The group actively engages in international dialogues with subteams working in the United Kingdom, European Union, United States, and internationally.
