Getinge sustainability

A sustainable offer


EcoDesign is a core part of Getinge’s sustainability efforts. It enables us to take the environmental impact over a product’s entire life cycle into account; from extraction of raw materials to production, distribution and use, all the way to recycling and disposal. We have also created a process for presenting the product’s environmental impact in a simple and useful way.

sustainable development goals

Supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals

The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) point out the direction for our efforts. We have identified the goals that are the most relevant for our operations. Goal #3 “Good health and wellbeing” is directly connected with our products and solutions, but there is also a focus on goal #8 “Decent work and economic growth,” goal #12 “Responsible production and consumption” and goal #4 “Quality education.

Designing products for a sustainable health care

Through the EcoDesign principles, our products’ environmental impact over the product life cycle is taken into account: from extraction of raw materials to production, distribution and use, all the way to recycling and disposal.

This approach is becoming increasingly more important as the market requirements were changing towards product environmental aspects in purchasing by acute care hospitals, laboratories and larger industries.

Shaping the sterile workflows of tomorrow

The GSS610H Steam Sterilizer is an excellent example of how Getinge integrates sustainability in the product development. The sterilizer is designed to process a high volume of instruments in a short time – and since process time and media consumption is optimized for each load, the sterilizer also reduces the environmental impact.
