CHALLENGE

To provide Axioma with metrics to aid decision making

Axioma is a company that offers auxiliary washing services and sterilised clothing for hospitals. The company started to question its business model due to changes in European regulation which promoted the use of non-reusable polypropylene surgical fabrics. 

How to turn this threat into an opportunity and find business alternatives that comply with the regulations, are profitable in economic terms and that reduce their environmental impact? How can environmental criteria contribute to their selling points?
