Sustainable Design and Manufacture for Medical Devices

6 Oct 2022

Sustainability in medical technology, as in all industries, is increasingly no longer an option. It’s not a question of “if” – it’s a question of “how”. This seminar will give you an in depth understanding of what sustainability options exist, what the benefits are, what drives them, and how to choose which will work for your company. It will also provide practical advice on how to implement change.
