Chief Green Officer: Rhonda Moore, Environmental Engineer

This medical products manufacturer is an environmental pioneer in its industry. It was the first to manufacture intravenous therapy bags that are free of polyvinyl chloride and the plasticizing agent DEHP, thus making them more environmentally friendly. In fact, it’s the only company in the nation that offers a full line of PVC-free and DEHP-free products. And it launched this initiative long before the green movement came into vogue. The company also created a Waste Calculator for hospitals and health networks. It allows medical facilities to determine how much waste they’d be eliminating if they switched to more environmentally friendly products. Still not impressed? Consider this: 85 percent of the Irvine manufacturing plant’s energy is produced on-site.

“Sustainable products and manufacturing processes are important elements in B. Braun’s commitment to protecting the planet. They are also increasingly important to hospital and health-care facility customers. We’re proud to partner with our customers in finding solutions that address the issues they face in delivering quality care, especially environmental responsibility.”
– Rhonda Moore, Environmental Engineer for B. Braun Medical Inc.
