What the AGN stands for
The Arbeitsgemeinschaft Nachhaltigkeit in der Dermatologie (AGN) e.V. actively supports the sustainable transformation of the health sector.
Since 2020, it has been continuously developing sustainable measures for everyday use in clinics and practices and bundling information on harmful ingredients in over-the-counter externals.
It also addresses plastics in the form of micro- and macroplastics, which pose a growing health threat to the population and also add significantly to the climate crisis.
