Back to Corporate social responsibility
There was no environmental enforcement action at any of the Company’s locations during the financial year ended 30 September 2011.
The Company makes available to its customers medical retinal imaging devices that are designed to ensure at a very minimum that they comply with applicable laws, regulations and industry standards in each of the country markets in which it operates. These devices by design have a minimal impact on the environment.
The Company engages in the continuous development of a range of packing materials that are suitable for multi-trip use. The Company is further rationalizing and minimizing the number of material movements both internally and externally by developing the US Distribution Service Centre as a manufacturing hub in addition to its repair capabilities. This is part of a 6σ lean strategy which is expected to deliver several benefits, including a positive environmental impact. This strategy will necessarily involve the supply chain. Additionally, the Company’s newest desktop retinal imaging device uses less packaging, less power and has simpler installation requirements, which together results in a greener environmental outcome.
The Company undertakes to recycle its paper, plastics, metal and personal computers and mobile telephones. Medical devices are no longer excluded from the RoSH directive as from 2014. The redesign of certain electronics to be ‘lead free’ is well underway with suppliers validating these new processes.
Under an approved producer compliance scheme, the Company is meeting the Waste Electrical Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations.
