As a manufacturer of medical products made primarily of plastic, Coloplast embraces the responsibility to contribute to solving the problems with plastic waste and wants to support the UN SDG 12 on responsible production and consumption.

Coloplast embraces the responsibility to contribute to solving the problems with plastic waste and wants to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 12 on responsible production and consumption. However, within healthcare, there are distinct clinical and regulatory limitations to reducing plastic waste.

Our users are increasingly concerned about environmental impacts. Coloplast incorporates environmental performance when developing new products, focusing on designing our products and packaging to be recyclable and made of renewable materials (such as recycled or bio-based) with less environmental impact.
