Tegra Medical, a leading contract manufacturer of medical devices and a member of SFS, which is headquartered in Heerbrugg Switzerland, today announced it has achieved ISO 14001 certification in all four of its locations in the Americas.

ISO 14001 certification, the world’s most widely recognized standard for Environmental Management Systems, is granted to companies that identify and manage aspects of their business to reduce their environmental impact. Certification is established with a baseline, which is determined after an extensive audit of a company’s procedures.

The audit is followed by a plan for improvement in selected areas. Some of Tegra Medicals areas upon which to focus improvement include material reuse, waste reduction, composting, and evaluating equipment for age and power efficiency. The Costa Rica location already gets nearly all its energy from renewable sources.
“Tegra Medical is emphatically committed to contributing to a greener world for future generations,” said Walter Kobler, Tegra Medical CEO. “As the medical division of SFS, Tegra Medical has made sustainability part of its DNA. It’s a mindset that will deliver value to our stakeholders as we infuse the holistic ESG criteria (environmental, social, governance) into all the work we do.”

Eduardo Mena leads the quality, environmental, health, and safety activities for Tegra Medical from the company’s location in Costa Rica. “The hard work of obtaining ISO 14001 certification will not only benefit our planet but will bring efficiencies in many of our manufacturing processes,” Mena noted. “With certification we will have processes in place to gauge improvements such as waste reduction, as well as our continuing efforts in becoming a greener company.”
