Greener • Lighter • More Comfortable
||We are committed to minimising the environmental impacts of our products, activities and services and to continually review and reduce our carbon emissions, with an aim to achieve Net Zero by 2045. We monitor and measured this through our Environmental Management System certified to the international standard ISO 14001:2015, and follow this framework to establish and ensure a sustainable approach across the business and throughout the lifecycle of our products.
Part of our commitment is a proactive approach to continuously improve our products and packaging, through material selection, with an aim to reduce their carbon emissions wherever possible.
In response to health and environmental concerns associated with Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) material we have concentrated our efforts to reduce its use, resulting in the development of Intersurgical Eco products, which provide an option with reduced environmental impact compared to traditional PVC products.
We are constantly striving to improve our environmental performance at our global manufacturing sites, by reviewing our processes and investing in the latest energy saving equipment to proactively reduce our overall environmental impact.
Utilisation of state of the art manufacturing technology has enabled us to combine two non-PVC materials in a number of our mask products. The polypropylene material forming the body of the mask is clear, lightweight and rigid enough to maintain the mask’s shape, whilst the second softer TPE is utilised in the manufacture of the seal, which is in contact with the patient’s face.
The use of these materials has resulted in oxygen, aerosol and anaesthetic face masks with a significantly reduced environmental impact and improved patient comfort providing a more environmental option.
Lower environmental impact products
We have many products in our range which do not contain any PVC. However, our Eco products have been designed as part of our ongoing focus on sustainable development.
Wherever you see the logo in our catalogues and website, we have reduced the environmental impact of these products compared to traditional PVC options, providing a more environmentally friendly choice.
