Innovations that can reduce the impact of healthcare on the environment
Healthcare is one of the most polluting industries, responsible for nearly 5% of total global greenhouse gases and generating over a tonne of waste per hospital bed each year. The COVID-19 pandemic has also greatly exacerbated the use of single-use plastics which have limited potential for recycling.
BMJ Innovations is planning a special collection of papers in 2023 to showcase the innovations that can reduce the impact of healthcare on the environment.
