A greener path to safe patient care

We are building innovative infection prevention and control solutions to enable our users to deliver safe and sustainable care.


Today, our products help protect lives around the world. To enable our users to continue protecting the world from infection, we are building products, processes and partnerships for the future.



Our dedicated team are looking into every element of product design including safe chemistries, suitable substrates and uncompromised efficacy across entire product lifecycles.



As market leaders in infection prevention and control, we are evolving our global operations in line with national imperatives - including our pledge to reach Net Zero by 2045, while making delivering sustainable care as safe as possible.



Our people are here to listen and work with our users and recognised groups to understand personal and organisational sustainability objectives. Working together, we will learn and lead with our solution-based offering.

We’re learning. Please talk to us about your sustainability goals so we can support you as we have since 2004.
