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 minimizing environmental impact. To improve our stewardship, we are focused on two specific areas:
Minimize Our Environmental Impact
We remain consistently mindful of our operating processes to understand where and how we can reduce our carbon footprint, minimize material waste, and prioritize recycling. A near-future goal is to begin utilizing recycled plastic or biodegradable polymer both in our products and packaging while implementing EPP standards as feasible.
Innovate for Sustainability
We are aligning our innovation strategy with sustainability goals, including developing environmentally-friendly products designed to minimize material usage and waste, omit chemicals of concern and hazardous waste, and consider recyclability where and when feasible. Every new product developed at Medela must improve the lives of our customers and contribute to our sustainability goals.
