How Sunrise Medical is Caring for the Environment

At Sunrise Medical, we strive each and every day towards a greener future. We are 100% committed to sustainability and improving peoples lives whilst protecting our planet. With this in mind, we have developed our very own environmental initiative called the 'Sunrise Medical Environmental Seal of Approval'. This initiative allows us to set specific environmental goals for our sites around the world. So we're not only upholding, but exceeding the high standards that ISO environmental management certification demands.

Here are just a few examples:

Cutting Energy Consumption

Cutting Energy Consumption

Looking to cut energy consumption, our Magic Mobility facility in Australia replaced all of their 62 manufacturing and warehouse lights with LED's (saving up to 10,698.13 KWh a year).

Reducing CO2 Emissions

Reducing CO2 Emissions

Committed to reducing CO2 emissions as much as possible, our facilities in the Netherlands have replaced company cars with lower CO2 versions. They've also installed several charging sockets to help encourage the use of electric cars amongst Sunrise Associates. Similarly, Sunrise Medical Sweden have started replacing company cars with hybrid versions too.

Ecosystem Restoration

Ecosystem Restoration

Wanting to support with Ecosystem restoration and recognising the vital connection between bees and the environment, Sunrise Medical Germany now collaborates with Beefuture (a full-service beekeeping team) to install and maintain a number of beehives across their premises.

Sustainable Energy Sources

Sustainable Energy Sources

Choosing sustainable sources of energy is essential to protecting the environment. That's why our German facility has switched to a certified provider that offers 100% clean, renewable hydroelectric power.

Re-Use of Packaging

Re-Use of Packaging

Another great example of our green thinking is the re-use of packaging wood at our facility in Mexico. This is donated to Sunrise Associates for use in family projects such as fencing or furniture building.

Saving Water and Reducing Energy

Saving Water and Reducing Energy

Keen to reduce water and energy consumption, our facility in Mexico have changed urinals and toilets to water-saving models. They've also installed touchless faucets to help control water temperature and reduce stream duration.

Saving Electricity and Reducing CO2 Emissions

Saving Electricity and Reducing CO2 Emissions

Committed to reducing CO2 emissions as much as possible, our German plant have installed a more efficient air conditioning system that not only saves electricity, but reduces CO2 by up to 670kg per year.

Reducing Carbon Footprint

Reducing Carbon Footprint

Our facilities in the United States track Green House Gases (GHG) in relation to the amount of utilities usage per month . This helps to not only record our “Carbon Footprint”, but better understand where we can make reductions to decrease it.

Paperless Office

Paperless Office

Our Norwegian Associates are fully committed to saving as many resources as possible. That's why they've moved their Customer Service teams over to a fully digital archive, and reducing paper printing related to order handling by up to 40%.
