Stryker Sustainability Solutions will sponsor Practice Greenhealth’s new Greening the Supply Chain Initiative. The initiative engages businesses in meeting the emerging demand for more environmentally preferable purchasing practices for products within health care facilities, GPOs, and in the marketplace.

The Greening the Supply Chain Initiative aims to provide a set of common tools for purchasers, suppliers, and manufacturers to ensure environmentally preferable products are available, cost-competitive, and in demand as the industry shifts toward more environmentally and fiscally responsible purchasing systems.

“In order to create an efficient health care supply chain, key systemic changes are needed to help hospitals understand how to better manage financial and environmental resources,” said Lars Thording, Stryker Sustainability Solutions’ senior director of marketing and public affairs.
