Hospitals Reduce Costs with Eco-friendly Procurement
EcoAid pioneers the development of greener, cost-effective solutions for hospital and medical environments.
When analysing procurement options, the Western Sydney Local Health District was able to adapt the single-use products in many cases to using products made from sugarcane. This simple shift in focus not only provides ongoing savings - but also reduces the network's carbon footprint.
A truly win-win solution.
