Medline launches 2 sustainability programs

Medline launched two sustainability programs focusing on reducing waste, according to a Dec. 2 press release.

The Green Product Portfolio will make it easier for healthcare providers to find and buy green products, the release said. It includes more than 40 product types that meet Medline's standards, from perioperative care to patient gowns.

The Sustainable Packaging Lab is a group of employees who will tackle packaging waste, the report said. The lab expects to roll out four new projects by the end of next year.

"There is a culture change happening to find ways to make their supply chain more sustainable," Hannah Anderson, a Medline sustainability specialist, said in the release. "Being a primary medical supplier partner, we are well positioned to help customers develop meaningful and actionable strategies to improve the health of patients in the communities they serve through sustainability."
