Global healthcare systems are under a lot of pressure with increasing healthcare spending, ageing populations, and 50% of the global population still lacking access to full coverage of essential healthcare services. At the same time, healthcare systems are already contributing to around ~4.4% of global CO2 emissions and absorbing a significant amount of the earth’s resources. There is a strong need to decarbonize our healthcare systems to ensure we can provide care for all, in a sustainable manner – without pushing our planet to further boundaries. To achieve this, hospitals, manufacturers and suppliers need to collaborate to ensure we can design healthcare equipment and solutions that minimize the impact on our environment and stimulate circularity. 

During this session, the first of a series, we aim to provide you with a glance into the opportunities and solutions that are arising in the healthcare industry and ways we can collaborate to achieve a more sustainable future in healthcare – together.

On 11 October, EuroCham’s Sustainability Committee organised a panel discussion on “Driving Sustainability in the Healthcare Industry”.

We would like to thank our esteemed speakers, Ms Ai Li Siow (Siemens Healthineers), Dr Shravan Verma, MD (Speedoc), Mr Brett Marshall (Zuellig Pharma) and Mr Huub van den Brok (Philips) for joining this vital conversation and offering our participants a glimpse into the opportunities and innovations that can drive sustainability within the healthcare industry.

Our moderator, Mr Joo-Seng Tan (Nanyang Business School), skillfully led an engaging discussion recognizing the pressing challenges that global healthcare systems face today – aging populations, healthcare workforce shortages, regulatory hurdles and roadblocks, poor accessibility to refurbished medical equipment, lack of proper and efficient management of waste and barriers to healthcare access. At the same time, our healthcare systems are contributing to 4.4% of global CO2 emissions – more than the aviation and shipping industries combined. The path forward is clear: decarbonizing healthcare systems while ensuring universal access to care. Collaboration is the key, to uniting hospitals, manufacturers, and suppliers to design eco-friendly healthcare solutions and promote circularity.

We would like to thank all who joined us and made this event a successful one. Look out for part 2 event!
