Journal of Business Chemistry (JoBC) – our June issue is online!

We are pleased to present the latest issue of the Journal of Business Chemistry (Volume 19, Issue 2) which is available at www.businesschemistry.org. We would like to thank all authors who contributed to this issue:

Janvee Garg´s and Anil Kumar Singh´s “An exploration of the ankle-biters and their role in business ecosystems” article contributes to the understanding of the term “ankle-biters” which is used for start-ups that challenge incumbents in established industries. They trace the term's etymology, propose a classification and give examples from different industries, e.g. the pharmaceutical industry.

Reporting the environmental footprint of chemical products is a huge challenge for companies. However, it´s increasing expected from society and the regulatory side. Lara Kämmerer, Denis Ludwig, Carla Mereu, and Ari Pankiewicz address this topic with their article “Product footprint reporting for chemicals companies”. They outline and compare two product footprint reporting frameworks: GHG Protocol’s Product Standard and the EU Commission’s Product Environmental Footprint.

Marcus Ehrhardt, Christine O´Brien, and Wilderich Heising ask the question “After COVID, what´s next for pharma supply chains?” in their commentary. At first, they look at the current structure of the pharmaceutical industry: A supply chain network with suppliers in all parts of the world with high dependence on certain countries. This enables cost reduction but leads also to management challenges and complexity. Another important influencing factor is the topic of sustainability, particularly climate change. As the majority of emissions in the pharma sector are scope 3 emissions, a look at the entire value chain is necessary. They close by outlining and summarizing levers to increase resilience and sustainability in pharma supply chains.
