As in any company, the Morita Group also follows growth targets. For us, however, this economic alignment is not in contradiction to ecological aspects.
The reason for this is that we are convinced that we are creating the basis for lasting success through an intelligent combination of economy and ecology – and in this way fulfil our responsibility to future generations. In daily practice, this includes the careful and efficient use of resources. In addition, we are striving to achieve an effective reduction in greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) in all work processes.
Our particular involvement in the sector of environmental protection can also be seen in the production processes. Here, Morita is the very first manufacturer of medical equipment to receive an award from the Japan Quality Assurance Organization (JQA). This certificate confirms the implementation of a management system relating to chemical substances in products. With this, we ensure that our products do not contain dangerous substances such as cadmium and lead – as is required by the EU directive 2011/65/EC on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS).
