The company has already reduced the size of its monitors to reduce the amount of materials used per device. In the coming years, iRhythm plans to open an additional intake site for its products, which may reduce the average distance that each monitor is shipped, with the potential indirect effect of reducing its downstream transportation- and distribution-related Scope 3 GHG emissions per monitor.
