Our Environmental Stewardship Initiative covers all areas of our operations: sales, manufacturing, supply chain, R&D and marketing.

Every day, we make environmentally conscious decisions while monitoring our global operations - from manufacturing to packaging design to expanding our local supply base. We've also implemented processes for minimizing travel, and are expanding our company-wide recycling programs.
We have implemented several energy-saving and recycling processes at our corporate campus and manufacturing facilities around the world, such as switching to T8 light bulbs, upgrading lighting systems to include automatic shutoff functionality, and recycling shrink wrap and sterilants. Many of our manufacturing facilities are also ISO 14001:2004 certified.
We will continue to identify more efficient and intelligent ways of using energy and natural resources in the production of our products and technologies.
STERIS continues to pioneer advanced technologies, processes and solutions that help Customers reduce utility consumption without sacrificing high-quality patient care. We are selecting raw materials that are more sustainable and are engineering solutions with longer lifecycles in an ongoing effort to reduce our overall footprint.
We also design sustainable OR and CS/SPD environments for various types of healthcare facilities working toward LEED certification.
