WEBINAR: Targeting Hard to Recover Waste in Health Care

While many large institutions are making real progress toward zero waste goals, hospitals and other medical facilities have struggled to keep pace. Healthcare generates an enormous amount of waste, much of it long considered unavoidable and unrecoverable. That’s starting to change as more sustainability initiatives are finding viable options to capture blue wrap and other plastic packaging from OR’s, clinics, and labs. More importantly, some leading institutions are finding circular economy solutions to eliminate unnecessary single-use items. This free program will feature case studies of efforts being made by several healthcare institutions followed by an extended panel discussion. 

This webinar is part of Busch Systems' Green Thinking Webinar Series.
