Addressing the Complexities of the Medical Waste Crisis Through Global Recycling

With the need to address plastic pollution, we partnered with Medtronic, a leader in sustainability in the MedTech sector, to understand if switching to recyclable packaging would create a meaningful diversion from landfills and oceans.

By aggregating available global datasets we identified recycling rates for 204 countries and territories, creating one of the most comprehensive #recycling datasets to date. We are excited to highlight our support for Medtronic taking meaningful steps towards a more #sustainable future by exploring global medical waste recycling opportunities and providing them the insights to #innovate in a way that truly moves the needle in addressing climate change.

Together we wanted to make informed actions around sustainability that result in the most meaningful impact on people and the planet.
