The AMR Industry Alliance is a diverse coalition of over 100 life sciences companies and associations working with stakeholders to address antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
SustainAbility worked closely with the AMR Industry Alliance to develop a measurement framework and deliver the very first report on the progress made against its commitments.
The Alliance was established to support proactive actions taken by companies, enable coordination across the entire life sciences industry, and help hold the industry accountable to commitments it has made in the Davos Declaration and Roadmap towards the goal to address this challenge.
SustainAbility worked closely with the AMR Industry Alliance to develop a measurement framework and deliver the very first report on the progress made against its commitments, as well as the remaining challenges. SustainAbility supported the AMR Alliance in three key areas:
1. Creating a reporting framework underpinned by robust metrics
SustainAbility reviewed comparable best practice reporting frameworks and leveraged existing research insights to develop a reporting framework validated by the AMR Industry Alliance Working Groups and Board. We finalized the reporting metrics, defined methodologies for measurement, and developed reporting framework launch materials.
2. Data Collection and Analysis
SustainAbility designed and launched the AMR Industry Alliance Survey and led the data collection process, liaising with data contributors at member companies and providing ongoing support to ensure quality survey responses. SustainAbility aggregated and analyzed the submission results.
3. Writing and designing the AMR Industry Alliance’s first progress report
SustainAbility synthesized the survey results into key takeaway messages and findings in the Alliance’s first report on progress. SustainAbility authored the report, with review and input from the Working Groups and Board. We worked with the Alliance’s Secretariat to produce a final designed version ready for launch and publication.
“The WHO welcomes the continuing commitment of the AMR Industry Alliance to hold to account those companies that have expressed their public commitment to address AMR through the Davos Declaration on AMR and also the Industry Roadmap.”
