Sustainable consumption and production. Efficiency of energy, water and food resources. Adequate consumption and costs for processes and infrastructure. As stated on the UN website: ‘doing more and better with less’!
Implementing all this means implementing comprehensive development plans, working towards reducing future economic, environmental and social costs, aiming at improving economic competitiveness and reducing poverty.
The aim is increased welfare from economic activities and from new, more sustainable production cycles that improve the quality of life for all (use of resources, degradation and pollution).
Implementing this Goal requires the general involvement of all stakeholders in the different supply chains and a systematic and cooperative approach between all actors in the supply chain, from producer to consumer.
Avoiding waste is the dictate of this 2030 Agenda Goal, which aims to enforce sustainable processes, practices and procedures in order to maximise and optimise what our planet has to offer and avoid its reckless or excessive and unfair use.
New standards and guidelines indicate or suggest process simplifications: being able to grasp these new developments is essential to start pursuing alternative low-impact solutions such as Curo Waste.
Curo is Cisa’s Waste technology currently operating in the UK that can dramatically reduce to zero the carbon emissions from the current medical waste treatment process, and then treat the by-product without waste.
Raw materials and recycling . Stainless steel is among the most commonly used green raw material as it is 100 percent recyclable.
What’s more, stainless steel production does not produce toxic run-off. Within the medical and laboratory equipment fields, the most popular metal of choice is “type 316L” stainless steel, because of its strength, stability, and ease of cleaning.
