A responsible healthcare organization has developed appropriate environmental, social, and governance practices. Increasing pressure from investors and national environmental regulation has led the healthcare industry to enhance their efforts of gathering data and report on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and their carbon footprint. Waste generated in manufacturing or hospital system environments can be considered hazardous material that can infect health workers, hospital patients and the general public. Additionally, the need to understand materiality and recyclability of products manufactured by or used by the healthcare sector, seems to be a growing concern for the industry.
A significant proportion of the healthcare industry’s sustainable impact can be achieved by engaging suppliers in improving their environmental, social and governance (ESG) practices. All these points, in addition to other enhanced efforts from the industry, further amplifying the importance of managing environmental impact and ensuring your organization is sustainable is key to maintaining operational resilience.
