The Environmental Sustainability Mission of Stem Tronics
Stem Tronics Environmental Sustainability contributes to our corporate citizenship purpose by providing value to healthcare professionals, their
patients, and stockholders while also respecting our social obligations. This goal connects us to environmental responsibility and motivates us
to seek out and act on opportunities to improve our environmental performance.
We pledge to improve our EHS management systems and performance on a continuous basis. We set EHS objectives and targets, implement management
systems and performance reviews, and share the findings with our workers, customers, and the general public on a regular basis.
Stem Tronics will encourage open communication with all stakeholders, including our employees, customers, and the general public, and will
respond to their EHS concerns and suggestions. We shall freely disclose and share information about our EHS management systems as well as the
EHS implications of our operations, services, and products.
The primary responsibility for executing this policy, assigning resources, and establishing and sustaining EHS programs remains with Stem Tronics
facility managers. All levels of management will take steps to ensure that all employees understand the policy's meaning and importance. Our
employees are in charge of incorporating EHS issues into their daily tasks.
Codes of Practice
Stem Tronics' EHS criteria for our business operations and facilities around the world are outlined in the Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS)
Codes of Practice. In essence, the Codes put the company's EHS policy into action. By incorporating EHS into our day-to-day business management
processes, the EHS Codes of Practice serve as a model for enhancing productivity, growth, and customer focus. The Codes also ensure that all
applicable EHS rules, as well as Company EHS policies and standards, are followed. They are the foundation for ongoing development in our
operations around the world.
Compliance with legislation and successful EHS activities are verified by a corporate internal audit program. Compliance with EHS Codes of
Practice is determined through annual self-assessments. Annually, EHS-related indicators are gathered to track progress.

Metrics acquired at the site level, which highlight utility usage and trends, help to further drive favorable outcomes.

on managing these sources as efficiently as possible.
