How the Industry Can Make an Environmental Impact

Large manufacturers who produce the drugs and devices that we use in surgery are uniquely positioned to make an environmental impact by reducing packaging, making instruments reusable, and streamlining their manufacturing and distribution process. Many companies share the priority of preserving our world for the future. Several have already implemented significant environmentally friendly changes and continue to prioritize internal efforts to lower their carbon footprint.

Because we believe that companies are not competitors but collaborators when it comes to the environment, we invite them to share their challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned.
