Respect for the environment represents an important part of Ontex Healthcare’s corporate goals and the control of our impact on the environment is continually being improved.
Ontex is ISO 14001 certified, which demonstrates the implementation and continuous improvement of a system of environmental management.
Ontex is committed to meet all regulatory requirements by implementing planned environmental monitoring and surveillance.
Our program of actions includes the prevention of pollution, minimizing rejected material and reducing waste, noise and energy consumption. One of the top priorities of the Ontex factories is to maximize the level of recycling of waste over 85%.
All our products are developed and manufactured with the aim of minimizing their impact on the environment (for instance, through the reduction of the thickness of the Polyethylene bags) whilst ensuring optimal performance.
Finally, on June 16th 2015, we were presented with the ‘Lean and Green’ award for our commitment to reducing our CO2 emissions of our logistical activities by 20% in Europe from 2013 to 2017, mainly by focusing on transportation.
