Join us on Thursday 11 March 2021 from 16:00 to 17:30 CET for a webinar organised by the Association of Medical Device Reprocessors (AMDR) with Fraunhofer-Institute UMSICHT as keynote speaker.
Hospitals are not yet fully engaging in the potential of the circular economy. New evidence identifies a solution – which EU member states can readily adopt.
Please join the webinar, “Promoting a Circular and Affordable Health Care System in Europe” to gain insights about new evidence that shows how greenhouse gas emissions from hospitals could quickly, easily, and efficiently be reduced. The panel provides a great opportunity to recognize the urgent need for the health sector to join the circular economy movement and discuss evidence-based solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including the use of remanufactured medical devices.
