Fabien Thibault

Global Manager, Product and Packaging Sustainability
Merck Life Sciences

Packaging engineer by training, I developed packaging for new Merck products for 10 years before joining the Corporate Responsibility group in 2015.

I am in charge of enhancing product and packaging sustainability across the Life Science division of Merck, managing and enhancing its Design for Sustainability program, creating awareness across all business areas and supporting project teams throughout the product development process. I am responsible for helping project teams identify environmental hot spots and opportunities for improvement, defining project objectives and articulating customer demands. I am also enhancing packaging sustainability by defining and implementing global packaging sustainability strategy and objectives — developing sustainable packaging guidelines, and enhancing and creating packaging recycling programs.
