Developing a surface cleaning and disinfection wipe that is both effective against harmful organisms and is biodegradable is a challenge. We have 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. In our lab, we have specialists in wet wipe substrate (nonwovens), packaging development, chemistry and microbiology.
We are currently working towards achieving 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 Working 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.
