A More Circular System: Striving for a Comprehensive Approach to Measuring Sustainability Performance

Surgical technology company Ethicon and Utah-based not-for-profit health system Intermountain Healthcare have implemented a product-level circular system to deliver on joint sustainability, financial and clinical goals. Without compromising on quality and service critical to clinical adoption, the organizations were able to close the loop for select medical devices.

This brief case study, A More Circular System: Striving for a Comprehensive Approach to Measuring Sustainability Performance, discusses their project’s success. The organizations were able to report the following results from 2014:

  • 260,966 units of devices diverted from landfills;
  • 59,964 pounds of waste reduced from landfills;
  • 35,978 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions reduced;
  • 1,858 gallons of gasoline saved.
