Our sustainability vision

We aim to support our customers in achieving their net-zero goals by committing to a net-zero carbon footprint in our own operations, without compromising  patient safety.

We will accomplish this for instance by increasing energy efficiency, transitioning to renewable energy sources in our operation, low emission product portfolio and mandating our suppliers to set Science-Based Targets for reducing their carbon emissions. 

Helping hospitals reach their net zero targets

The health sector plays a significant role in global greenhouse gas emissions, accounting for nearly 5% of the total emissions worldwide. This figure can be as high as 10% in some high-income nations.

In our pursuit of understanding and reducing our environmental impact within the healthcare sector, we began on a journey to evaluate the carbon footprint of our 2l suction bag.

Serres Suction bags: sustainable by design

The Serres single-use suction bag contains minimal plastic, while ensuring, and even exceeding high-performance standards.

We at Serres actively take steps to become the global leader in sustainable medical single-use offering and recyclable solutions in circular economy to support hospital’s net-zero targets.

Annual reporting and GRI

Serres sustainability reporting is in line with standards published by the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) to measure and report responsibility.
