Our customer groups expect us to provide medical solutions with maximum value. This is why we see it as our responsibility to develop therapy systems that optimize processes, bring progress, increase safety and strengthen partnerships for better patient care.
Our goal is to achieve the highest possible patient and user safety for our products and services using comprehensive quality management as well as integrated and comprehensive risk management throughout the product cycle. Our holistic approach also includes monitoring the ecological and social aspects along the value chain, and examining approaches with which we can contribute to sustainable development.
In our product development, we focus on reducing, reusing and recycling all the resources we use. As we do this, we are also breaking new ground in the development of standards for the optimization of manufacturing sites, products, production technologies and packaging. In addition, we are increasingly working on the use of more recyclable or even biodegradable materials.
We see a major leverage in the development of sustainable products. For example, with its Actreen® product line, B. Braun offers a ready-to-use disposable catheter that requires less material and completely eliminates sourcing difficult-to-recycle materials such as aluminum or hard plastic. We have also changed the Actreen® bag supplied from plastic to paper with a PVC coating. This bag is still water resistant, but now it is more environmentally friendly.Discover Actreen®
Compared to single-use packaging, the Aesculap sterile container system generates 95 percent less plastic waste. This allows hospitals to dramatically reduce their single-use packaging waste stream, and in a medium-sized facility, to save over 3,100 kilograms of waste every year.
In hemodialysis therapy, the design of the new SolCart® B bicarbonate cartridge with tamper-proof caps, means that in the future, we will no longer need the outer plastic bag and will save 87 percent of the plastic. Sol-Cart® is a cartridge filled with bicarbonate powder, which is used together with other components to prepare rinsing solutions in dialysis machines. These solutions can remove harmful substances from the blood of patients who need dialysis, and provide them critical substances they are missing.Discover Sol-Cart® B
Together with our partners, we are working on promising solutions for specific problems at B. Braun, including pilot waste management systems projects for the separation and collection of contaminated and non-contaminated clinical waste.Explore B. Braun accelerator
