Our Environmental Policies
In our awareness of our responsibility for people and the environment, we strive for active, comprehensive and innovative environmental protection. This is why we have had an environmental management system for years that conforms to the DIN EN ISO 14001 international standard. Eppendorf’s goal is not just to optimize its environmental management system continuously, but also to improve its environmental performance over the long run.
Wherever it is economically feasible, we orient our activities to the goals of sustainable business, and continuously identify, implement and improve measures that help reduce environmental damage. The high quality, efficiency, and long service life of our products contributes to the careful use of resources. This is why we ensure that environmental requirements are defined for each stage in the life cycle of our products as early as the development process.
Moreover, we are committed to fulfilling all binding obligations. These arise in part from legal provisions and the requirements of regulatory authorities, but also through the expectations and demands of the relevant interested parties – such as customers, employees and suppliers. For this reason, we naturally cooperate with regulatory institutions and maintain an open exchange of information with all our partners.
The employees of Eppendorf are the foundation of our environmental management system, thus we actively promote their environmental awareness through information, training and continuing education, and integration and leadership. In addition, every member of management has the task of introducing and strengthening environmental awareness in his or her departments, because we can only live up to our standards of sustainability and environmental protection by working together.
