As stewards of our planet and leaders in our industry, we recognize the effect our work has on the world around us and the importance of innovation with a focus on sustainability and environmental stewardship. To improve our environmental impact, we are focused on two specific areas:
Promote environmental stewardship
We are continuously evaluating our operating processes and conducting environmentally-focused initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint, minimize material waste and prioritize recycling across the value chain. We are making progress to utilize recycled plastic or biodegradable polymer in products and packaging, and implement EPP standards as feasible.
We are aligning our innovation strategy with sustainability goals, including developing quality environmentally-friendly products that reduce environmental impact including reducing plastic in packaging and designing for recycling. Every new product developed at Medela must improve the lives of our customers and contribute to our sustainability goals.
