Sunrise Medical is a leading manufacturer and distributor of premium complex mobility products and services. As a responsible company, we recognize that environmental protection is part of a wider sustainability agenda.
We will endeavor, wherever possible, to use natural sustainable and recycled resources to prevent pollution and continually improve our environmental performance in relation to our facilities, our products, and services.
We will deliver this environmental policy through the following principles:
- Management Commitment
All Management and associates will take responsibility for ensuring that our environmental policy is implemented, maintained, and continually improved.
As a minimum, we will comply fully with the requirements of all of the relevant environmental laws/regulations and any other relevant requirements seeking to exceed them wherever possible.
We recognize the importance of education and communication. Therefore, we will undertake the necessary training in order to implement and sustain our policy.
- Energy (Resources)
We recognize that the waste of energy is an unnecessary cost and has an impact on the environment. Therefore we will endeavor to pursue an ongoing program of energy efficiency.
We recognize that unnecessary waste is inefficient, adds cost and has unnecessary environmental impacts. We will therefore endeavor to prevent and if not possible, recover, reuse, and recycle.
- Biodiversity, Amenity and Land Restoration
Wherever possible, we will aim to protect and conserve local bio-diversity.
- New Site Development
Whenever there is a new process or site development, we will assess the impact this will have on the environment.
- New Products
We are aware that there will be disposal implications associated with our products. Therefore, we will endeavor, wherever possible, to improve the product design in order to minimize the potential environmental impacts on disposal.
Within our audit and review cycle we will report on our environmental performance annually and the setting/reviewing of objectives and targets and use this as a base for year on year improvements.
