This webinar examined how companies in healthcare can succeed at getting their CFOs and commercial leaders to become fans of sustainability and how can they communicate the importance of sustainability to suppliers.
This presentation covered the sustainability impacts of the health care system, as originally presented at the Metrics that Matter: Messages that Motivate conference hosted by Johnson & Johnson and Wharton Institute for Global Leadership on December 4, 2013.
Keith Sutter, Sr. Product Director at Johnson & Johnson kicked-off the session with some insights from the conference and provided context for the ongoing conversation. Libby Bernick and Dr. James Salo from Trucost presented new quantitative research on the sustainability impacts of the health care system. This research provided insight on the most meaningful material sustainability impacts, in financial terms, across the entire health care system, looking specifically at suppliers, distributors, and providers. Trucost will discussed the methodology behind the research and provided insights to guide sustainability decisions for the biggest reductions and impacts, as well as a case study example on a health care provider. The webinar included an audience Q&A on the research, methodology, and case study.
