SterilMed and Stryker Sustainability Solutions were recently selected as founding members for Practice Greenhealth’s (PGH) Environmentally Preferable Purchasing (EPP) Business Leadership Coalition, a group of 15 leading businesses in the health care sector that have been brought together by Practice Greenhealth to assist hospitals and others in the sector to promote the purchase of products and processes that are less hazardous to the environment. According to the PGH press release, the 15 founding members pledged in their initial statement of intent to “closely examine their own supply chains in order to identify practices, processes, materials or social considerations that may impact the products offered to the health care sector. They will also share best practices uncovered in their own businesses in “an honest effort to bring about positive change both internally and externally.”” AMDR is proud of both companies for their stewardship to the environment and commends the other 13 members for their commitment to reduce unnecessary waste generated by the health care industry.
