Why sustainable procurement?
As the world is currently facing one of the most daunting pandemics in history, procurement of medical products such as medical masks and gloves, ventilators, and respirators has increased drastically. The global health sector’s unified concern today is to prevent and provide a cure for COVID-19. Yet it is an indisputable fact that the delivery of prevention and treatment services can inadvertently contribute to major human and environmental health problems.

Every day, health care organizations make choices about the products and services they use, from medications, food, and hospital supplies, to the energy source used for lighting and powering operating rooms. The collective purchasing power of the health care organizations can shape the marketplace, increase demand for sustainable products, and embrace a broader healing mission.
