The core themes of our sustainability are environmentally sustainable ways of manufacturing diagnostic raw materials and responsibility for our employees and suppliers. We aim to improve in our selected themes through concrete actions, such as:
- Reducing our carbon footprint
We sort and recycle material needed in manufacturing processes of our first-class products. We have a program to sort and recycle paper, carton, metal, glass, biowaste, plastics, energy waste, biohazards, hazardous chemicals, electronics, batteries, and fluorescent tubes, among others. We are continuously seeking ways to use more sustainable packaging and shipping materials and transportation methods.
- Employee actions
We continuously measure the well-being and engagement of our colleagues, and we believe that happy employees contribute to health and sustainability of our environment. We are focusing on delivering excellent safety performance and expanding our commitment to inclusion and diversity in all our locations worldwide.
Here are some examples of the initiatives of how we are contributing by making more environment-friendly choices in our daily work:
- We advise our employees to commute using bicycle or electronic or hybrid car or using train or public transport instead whenever possible.
- We drink CO2 compensated coffee in our offices and focus on sustainably produced food in our head office canteen in Espoo.
The overall framework for our sustainability goals stem from the United Nations 17 Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs): THE 17 GOALS | Sustainable Development (un.org) which call for action and support companies’ efforts to achieve more sustainable future for everyone. Among these SDG’s, Medix Biochemica can contribute the most to the following ones:
We are pleased to continue our sustainability journey at Medix Biochemica. This year, Medix Biochemica joined the EcoVadis sustainability rating system and scored Bronze Medal with the first response, outscoring 72 % of all companies rated by the system.
