As a leading company in the medical technology field, we feel obliged to fulfill our responsibility to society through the sustainable use of resources. Our environmental awareness grows out of our deep respect for people and their environment and compels us to actively promote environmental protection.
We are convinced that our attitude can largely affect our future success in the same way as it has affected our progress over the past several decades.
Throughout our company we work on ways to encourage and facilitate sustainable use of resources. From device production to usage, from purchasing to transport, for factory operations and products, our efforts are actively linked with ecological aspects of sustainability.
Here are some good examples of our commitment to sustainability and environmental protection:
In new development and the disposal of electronic devices, we are committed to strict observance of the international directives WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances).
Active avoidance of waste generation:
Reuse of materials and recycling of packaging – in close cooperation with suppliers – minimize waste.
We protect the environment through careful waste disposal. We sort our waste in general and specially label synthetic parts. In production we bolt metal parts together and avoid use of adhesive connections.
We do not store environmentally hazardous materials. We comply with hazardous goods regulations and voluntarily use lead-free design for our printed circuit boards.
Our shipping partners and we use only recycled cardboard packaging.
