Waste

Winning the fight against waste

We’ve declared a war on waste material and excess packaging in all of our global manufacturing sites. We’re designing waste out of the system.

We always seek to use materials more efficiently to reduce the amount of potentially harmful waste we generate. This includes reviewing the type and quality of materials we source as well as the way we make and package our finished goods.

‘At our wound dressing factory in Finland, we reuse whatever materials we can – right down to the pallets the raw materials arrived on.’

Jarkko Tujula, HSE Specialist, Mikkeli

Each of our factories has targets and actions in place to reduce waste. We are committed to good recycling practices and also recommend that our customers recycle packaging materials such as cardboard and corrugated board.
