Our mission is to keep people safe from infection, whilst protecting our environment. Sustainability continues to be at the heart of our top 11 priorities and we've identified 3 areas where we can make the biggest difference.
We have challenged ourselves with developing a surface cleaning and disinfection wipe that is both effective against harmful organisms and is plastic free.
We are vigorously streamlining our operations to stamp out waste in all areas of the business from accounts through to the canteen and bathroom facilities.
We are reviewing each of our sites to make them more efficient in addition to scrutinising where we source all our consumables from. All new vehicles purchased or leased from 2023 will be electric, as part of our complete eradication of fossil fuels. Less energy, less fuel, less impact.
In 2021, we were awarded ISO 14001 accreditation, which sets a standard for environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste. View certificate.
We are an active participant in the European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA) and their work relating to wet wipes and sustainability.

Developing a surface cleaning and disinfection wipe that is both effective against harmful organisms and is plastic-free is currently a challenge. To overcome that challenge, we're going to have to develop and test new technologies. We've invested in a state-of-the-art research facility in Halifax where our scientists are currently exploring the use of renewable resources for product development. Our lab is home to specialists in wet wipe substrate, packaging development, chemistry and microbiology.
We're currently working towards ISO 14001. This standard sets out the requirements for an environmental management system and helps organisations improve their environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
We have established an Environmental Sustainability Steering Group which is tasked with managing the immediate and long-term environmental impacts of GAMA's products, services and processes.
GAMA Healthcare is a member of The European Disposables and Nonwovens Association (EDANA) and is an active participant of working groups relating to wet wipes and sustainability.
We have replaced our plastic bubble wrap with environmentally-friendly paper bubble wrap to send out all our samples.
