- Ritex acknowledges its responsibility for mankind and the environment
As a medical device manufacturer, Ritex is aware not only of its great responsibility towards its users, but also towards its duty to conserve natural resources, to act in a socially responsible manner and to strengthen Germany as a location in the economic field.
Ritex’s self-imposed objective is to integrate sustainability as a key component in all areas of business and to thereby harmonise ecological and economic objectives.
- Ritex develops measures for the economical use of resources in production and administration
Ritex is committed to handling natural resources in an environmentally friendly way at its company’s production facilities and administrative departments. In this regard, the development of forward-looking solutions for avoiding, reducing or reusing energy, water and waste takes centre stage.
The aim is to feed as many of the materials used as possible into a recycling or multiple use cycle, so as to gradually cut consumption.
- Ritex focuses on sustainability when designing products
The human impact of its products is the highest priority for Ritex.
Another of Ritex’s self-imposed goals is to refrain from using unnecessary packaging and to obtain any necessary remaining packaging from the most sustainable sources.
We refrain from using transparent films, blister packs and similar plastic waste in our products.
Our cardboard packaging is certified by the FSC.
- Ritex documents sustainability projects
Ritex compiles an annual report, which documents the ecologically relevant measures in production and administration while stating the investments necessary for this and the associated savings.
Measures are continuously adhered to and reviewed by the Environmental Team. Ritex is happy to provide its annual report upon request.
Not only does it address the ecological aspects, such as reducing CO2 emissions; it also goes into detail regarding our commitment to social matters (e.g. supporting school-based sex education and making donations to charitable organisations).
- Ritex provides employees, customers and the public with information about sustainability projects
Ritex formulates and circulates its corporate “sustainability” objective to all of its employees and customers as well as to the public. All the developments and measures are regularly and clearly presented, highlighting the general benefit for both humans and the environment.
The aim is to motivate employees to actively get involved in ecological action both in the workplace and in their private lives, and to demonstrate to the public that Ritex is a modern, forward-looking company that is aware of its social and environmental responsibility.
