Medical Device Sector

Organization(s) Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance
Project Description In June a meeting was convened on "The Business Case for Design for the Environment (DfE) for Medical Device Manufacturers," co-sponsored by MassMEDIC, Associated Industries of Massachusetts, Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, the Executive Office of Environmental Affairs, and the Office of Technical Assistance. This half-day workshop was designed to enhance the competitiveness of medical device manufacturers by assisting them in anticipating and proactively responding to marketplace pressures to enhance the environmental attributes of products.

The event introduced business models that have successfully integrated DfE principles and identified the benefit of DfE in product design. The agenda included a 45-minute executive session, led by Dr. Patrick Eagan of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, followed by a technical session that included multiple speakers and case studies.
