This project developed a framework to evaluate the environmental impact of equipment purchasing in healthcare. The framework consisted of four phases: classifying equipment, literature review, impact calculation, and result interpretation. The developed framework can assist the procurement team in making informed decisions that contribute to sustainability. The framework's strengths include the classification of equipment based on its intended use duration and the use of the spend-based method.
