Sustainability in Healthcare Report 2021
talkhealth‘s most recent survey spotlights pitfalls in sustainable healthcare…
We all know that sustainability is big on the healthcare scene these days, but patients and clients are often left unfulfilled when they make greener health choices. What’s more, we don’t blame patients or medical professionals for feeling bamboozled by the huge amount of eco-friendly healthcare options that are on offer!
At talkhealth, we are dedicated to safeguarding the future of both healthcare and the planet. To find out more about the current state of sustainable healthcare, we asked our members how sustainable healthcare has shaped their patient journeys so far and the areas that they believe need an extra nudge to become more planet conscious.
Our Sustainability in Healthcare report found that:
- 90% of the survey respondents think that environmental issues are either ‘important’ or ‘extremely important’
- 82% of people said they were more likely to buy something if it has green credentials
- Over half of the respondents believe health and wellness companies aren’t doing enough to make their products eco-friendly
- For 88% of people, zero-plastic packaging is classed as either ‘important’ or ‘extremely important’. Many participants commented on the disparity between the organic composition of healthcare products and the plastic that is used to package them.
These results show that our community are switched on when it comes to green healthcare. We are excited by the results and will implement the insights for the bettering of our brand-new platform talkgreen.
We hope that you are also spurred on by these findings and that they have planted a seed for partnership possibilities between talkhealth and your brand. We want talkgreen to signpost our audience to planet-friendly products and services through a range of promotional features including offers, reviews and educational articles.
If you are interested in collaborating with talkhealth on upcoming green projects, or, you would like to receive this report in full, please email our Sales and Partnerships Director.
We hope that with your help, we can look forward to a greener healthcare future!
