Applied Medical is committed to developing sustainable practices to balance our economic, environmental and social impacts.

Applied Medical’s efforts to identify and manage current and future initiatives supporting sustainability are addressed in our Sustainability Plan. By tracking energy usage, water consumption, carbon emissions, and waste generation as primary indicators, we can gauge our progress toward optimization of our sustainability efforts. Our focus is on:

  • assessing current environmental impacts,
  • identifying sustainability targets and goals,
  • providing planned implementation strategies, and
  • encouraging team members' involvement and tracking results.

By concentrating on these areas, we are able to address and consistently reduce our environmental impact over time. We are committed to protecting our environment and making a difference in the lives of others in our local as well as our global community. Learn more about our Approach to Sustainability.

Carbon Emissions Reduction

As a vertically integrated company, we conduct all of our manufacturing processes in-house, avoiding freight-related emissions typically associated with outsourcing.

A highly efficient water chiller system provides up to a 95 percent reduction in water use compared to traditional water towers.

Solar panels generate almost 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually, which provides about 15 percent of our energy needs in Orange County.

Applied has converted to form-fit packaging on many products to decrease packaging materials and box size by as much as 30 percent.

Applied Medical's ProTerra Committee is made up of passionate team members companywide who promote sustainability and volunteer opportunities.
