Sustainable practices and approaches in Healthcare

July 4, 2023

Sustainability is quickly becoming one of the main focuses of the healthcare industry in Europe, with multiple legislations already in place, in addition to future measures that will further promote and require more sustainable solutions from medical companies.

These legislations will extend to medical devices, with the new regulations requiring companies to take on sustainable approaches with their products. Additionally, the procurement process of contracts is also putting a greater emphasis on sustainability, favoring suppliers with more environment-friendly approaches.

Key2Compliance offers comprehensive solutions that help companies reach their goals while guiding them toward sustainable practices.

The new and updated environmental legislations in Europe will soon require more sustainable solutions and approaches from suppliers when procuring contracts with hospitals, local governments, and other stakeholders within the supply chain.

Compliance does not only apply to regulations for medical devices, IVD, and pharmaceuticals, but also to more stringent environmental legislations in Europe. Companies must aim to minimize waste, eliminate harmful emissions, and use sustainable materials.

The healthcare sector accounts for 4-5% of global emissions. As inhabitants of our planet, we all have a role to play in preserving our environment. At Key2Compliance, we also aim to help our customers reduce their environmental footprint.

Key2Compliance can help your company with:

  • A tool for systematic environmental work that can be seamlessly integrated into your current QMS (ISO 14001)
  • Digitalization of your QMS, effectively reducing paper consumption and paper waste while boosting efficiency and productivity
  • Choosing materials that are both safe and environment-friendly
  • Validating your reprocessing workflow

Sustainability extends to a far greater and larger scope than compliance—it also extends to our environmental stewardship. With its large and significant environmental footprint, the healthcare industry can greatly benefit from more sustainable options and solutions. It is important for companies to recognize their responsibilities and do their part in creating a greener and more sustainable environment.

At Key2Compliance, we are strong advocates of sustainability, and we’d love to do our part in helping companies implement more environment-friendly practices and approaches.
