Standardized environmental criteria

Sustainable procurement guide: Annex 6

Description

(Sustainable procurement guide) To reduce human health and environmental impacts of products purchased in health care, the standardized environmental criteria support identifying and purchasing sustainable products. The criteria address two important impact areas: chemicals of concern and waste reduction.

Practice Greenhealth has developed guidance for the criteria that explains to suppliers and health care organizations the intent, rationale, and applications to products. This includes technical details for manufacturing.
