Health system supply chain executives must keep sustainability in mind when partnering with manufacturers and sourcing requests for proposals (RFPs).
In this podcast, JHC Publisher Scott Adams talks to Rick Williamson, Vice President of Marketing, Channel Development for B. Braun Medical, about B. Braun’s sustainability initiatives. They discuss producing zero landfill waste, avoiding use of hazardous substances and contributing to the communities that B. Braun works in.
Also, Dawn Kentner, OEM Product Development Manager for B. Braun, talks about B. Braun’s focus on eliminating chemicals for concern such as DEHP and PVC plastic and working with suppliers to identify short-term safter materials. This often results in manufacturing changes and takes significant investment. B. Braun has invested more than $1 billion since 2019 to upgrade facilities and launch its latest IV solutions manufacturing plant.
