Abstract:
The purpose of this thesis is to consider the best options for the transportation team within Becton Dickinson’s Medical Devices group in pursuing an environmental sustainability metric. The team wanted to know what current practices existed and what would be the best method to pursue. In order to supply this information, a literature review and survey were conducted. Through these methods, a recommendation will be made on how this team should move forward with pursuing their sustainability initiative.
