The impact of Climate Change is an urgent global issue that continues to impact our future in a variety of ways. According to the World Health Organisation, Climate Change “threatens the essential ingredients of good health – clean air, safe drinking water, nutritious food supply, and safe shelter – and has the potential to undermine decades of progress in good health.” Through its partnerships with industry experts, customers, and end users, Vernacare are driving sustainable product development and introducing eco-conscious infection prevention solutions into a variety of healthcare markets.
One area where they are making a significant impact is through its newly developed 5th generation Sharpsafe® containers, which are now made using low carbon footprint recycled material.
With all its product ranges, it is extremely important that regulatory and quality standards, as well as industry guidance, are regularly reviewed and updated as new requirements are identified. Manufacturing methods and production materials are constantly evolving, which allows Vernacare to strive towards a more sustainable future, whilst ensuring high product quality is at the forefront of our improvements. The evolution of standards and guidance is paramount to allow continued growth and product innovation with sustainability at its core.
