28 November 2023 | Brussels, BE
Health Care Without Harm (HCWH) Europe is excited to announce our one-day event focusing on Circular Healthcare in Brussels, Belgium, open to any healthcare professionals who want to learn more about Circular Healthcare. We invite you to join us for this training session aimed at transforming how we approach healthcare practices and implementing principles from the waste hierarchy in the sector.
This event is tailored for healthcare management, procurement, sustainability, waste management professionals, and healthcare practitioners who want to learn more about Circular Healthcare. It's a must-attend for those passionate about reducing waste in the healthcare sector.
Why is Circular Healthcare important?
The traditional linear consumption model in healthcare poses significant threats to our health and the environment. Approximately 5.2% of global carbon emissions can be attributed to the healthcare sector, a large part of these emissions stemming from the supply chain – the production, transport, use, and disposal of goods and services.
Single-use products are a major contributor to this issue, fostering a disposable culture that amplifies waste, emissions, and human health risks. As plastic use surges, so does the prevalence of hazardous chemicals like endocrine disruptors, which pose heightened risks to vulnerable populations such as children, pregnant women, and chronically ill patients.
Join this training to:
- Learn how to reduce plastic and its impacts on health and the environment.
- Discover how to prevent waste and introduce reusable alternatives in healthcare settings.
- Explore how to eliminate harmful chemicals from healthcare products and processes.
- Engage in discussions on sustainable procurement and circular business models for healthcare.
- Network with fellow Circular Healthcare practitioners and innovators from across Europe
Spaces for the training are limited, so we encourage you to register as soon as possible to reserve your spot. HCWH Europe will confirm your participation. After registration, we kindly ask you to complete a short survey to evaluate your familiarity with Circular Healthcare. Your answers will be taken into account to shape the program.
Join us in Brussels on 28 November 2023 for a transformative event on Circular Healthcare!
