Sustainability has risen to the top of the corporate agenda in many industries, including the medical device market. Part of the push toward environmental stewardship is coming from healthcare systems, with Europe leading the way.

This goal was backed by many NHS suppliers at the recent COP26 conference2 — a positive signal for the medical device industry’s commitment to reduce emissions.
