Invitation to Market Dialogue for Environmental Labelling of Medical Supplies

Medical products are essential for maintaining modern and high-quality health care systems. At the same time, they can be a threat to both the environment and our health due to hazardous content, and a high level of resource exploitation. Five Nordic Public Buyers have therefore joined forces to use their purchasing power to challenge the market to develop more sustainable products.
