August 03, 2020 – Practice Greenhealth and the Greenhealth Exchange (Reston, VA) announced the release of “Greenhealth Approved,” a new, national program which will allow healthcare purchasers to easily identify sustainable alternatives to the products currently purchased.
The Greenhealth Approved seal utilizes the expertise and measurement criteria developed by Health Care Without Harm as the program’s underpinnings. The new program enables suppliers with environmentally preferred products to submit information about those products for review against a transparent set of attributes, Greenhealth says. If appropriate, the product(s) may utilize the Greenhealth Approved seal to signal to the market that it has successfully met the criteria.
Greenhealth Approved products will be listed on the program’s website along with information about the vetting criteria and the application process.
The work done with suppliers to submit data for vetting and administering other aspects of the program will be coordinated by the Greenhealth Exchange team. Suppliers interested in setting up a call to learn more, can do so through an online calendar.
Healthcare procurement professionals can refer to the website when looking for products that have been vetted and approved for use of the seal.
