Sustainability in logistics

In logistics, we ensure greater sustainability by replacing disposable medical products with reusable products, reducing packaging waste and disposing of waste in an environmentally friendly manner.

Reduce packaging waste

Since 2018, USZ Logistics has been working with standardized reusable containers when transporting materials in order to minimize packaging waste. The USZ is also working with suppliers to find solutions. For example, office supplies are now picked directly from the supplier in USZ reusable containers and delivered to the USZ.

Environmentally friendly disposal

Every year, the USZ disposes of over 2000 tons of operational waste via the waste incineration plant. Metals, batteries and plastic waste are collected separately and recycled. By optimizing the disposal routes, the number of kilometers driven by the disposal vehicles has been reduced by more than half in recent years.
