Abstract

Generalisations or ‘rules of thumb’ are widely used in industry to make initial assessments on the sustainability impacts of products. This paper re-examines the principles underpinning these generalisations in assessing the environmental impacts of medicine manufac t ur ing network configura t io ns. Each princip le is illus tra ted through the application of selected methods, tools, and data using an exemplar case of a major non- proprietary analgesic. The findings identify the kind of generalised knowledge claims that are possible using alternative approaches, and which methodological issues may arise.
