To the planet
Water is the primary resource in the manufacture of our injectable products, so it is vital that we reduce the consumption. Laboratoire Aguettant´s ambitions has resulted in an industrial plan to save water. The goal is to improve the performance of saving water on every site. Efficacy is measured by tracking the ratio of water consumption to quantity of products made.
Aguettant is committed to iinclude eco-responsible practice in the manufacture of our products. From the design phase to end of life.
Several factors are considered in the process of eco-design :
- reduce, recycle, waste less
- minimise energy to produce
- transport more eco-friendly and efficiently
We Want to reduce waste
The health care sector is generating massive amounts of waste every day and the use of essential medicines are part of this waste: General waste, like blisters and packaging, sharp utensils like needles and medicine waste, e.g. unused, or expired medicines are disposed every day. Ready To Administer medicines reduce the amount of waste in hospitals by reducing or eliminating the use of ampoules, needles and packaging.
