We want to leave the planet as we found it for the benefit of future generations. We are passionate about the health of the planet for many reasons but are particularly serious about ensuring that our patients’ and our communities’ physical environments are not detrimental to their long-term health. One’s physical environment is a key determinant of wellbeing and will have an impact on each individual’s health outcomes.
Our facilities are currently tracking their resource intensity, specifically as it pertains to water, electricity, and waste of various kinds. We are actively developing an Environmental Working Group to lead the formation and execution of a comprehensive sustainability strategy. This strategy will address site specific environmental performance and set us up to report on full-company carbon impact. Once we have met these baseline expectations, we will set reduction goals for the future and work together to achieve them. In order to encourage a continuous improvement mindset, we aim to certify our manufacturing sites to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management standard over the next few years.
