Orthex Group is now certified to the new ISO standards in Quality and Environment, 9001:2015 and 14001:2015.
Orthex Group invests in superior quality, safety and design of its products, as well as in sustainable production methods. All of these areas are developed continuously. The company has been certified according to ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 since 2002. In May 2016 Orthex Group was amongst the first companies in the Nordic to be certified according to the new, 2015, version of the ISO 14001 and ISO 9001.
The new versions of the certificates differ from the old versions for example in the following points:
- Improving environmental performance added
- Increased prominence of environmental management within the organization's strategic planning processes
- Addition of proactive initiatives to protect the environment from harm and degradation, such as sustainable resource use and climate change mitigation
- Lifecycle thinking when considering environmental aspects
This means that today Orthex Group is even more environmentally conscious than before. The auditors especially appreciated the freshly published Sustainability Report as well as the thorough environmental assessment that was done in each site. The high awareness of the company strategy and environmental goals was praised during the auditing process.
“At Orthex Group sustainability is a natural part of our organizational culture and plays a key role in our strategy.
It is how we foster sustainable economic performance and take the environment into account in all our action. It is in our consumer, customer and stakeholder promise to improve everyday life in a broader sense.
We see sustainability as a path to innovation and as a competitive advantage. Orthex Group is always committed to conducting business in a sustainable and responsible way and we expect the same from all our partners”, says Alexander Rosenlew, Orthex Group CEO.
