We are pleased to have the opportunity to comment on select federal agency climate
adaptation and resilience plan submissions to the Council on Environmental Quality. The
Association of Medical Device Reprocessors (AMDR) provides comments specifically in
response to the U.S. Veterans Health Administration, the Department of Health and Human
Services, and the Department of Defense to address climate change by reducing greenhouse
gas emissions in the health sector.
AMDR is the global trade association representing the interests of regulated, commercial
medical device reprocessors. We write with a simple, evidence-based solution that reduces
greenhouse gas emissions from the supply chain at hospitals, reduces costs and improves
supply chain resiliency – a solution that is not addressed in the climate adaptation and
resilience plans from the noted departments. . .
