The Sustainable Partnership Program

A sustainable way of doing business: Kementec’s Sustainable Partnership Program!

What is The Sustainable Partnership Program?

We have a goal to always strive for the best. We want to produce the best products possible and are always rethinking our priorities. For many years we have worked towards becoming more sustainable regarding our products, the production of our products, and within our everyday work life at Kementec, without compromising on the quality and performance of our products.

The purpose of our program is to rethink sustainable business!

What are our goals within the Sustainable partnership program?

  • To keep creating awareness about our ECO-TEK product line and the benefits of more environmentally friendly products
  • To keep expanding our ECO-TEK line and creating new and innovative products
  • To keep researching and creating products without any animal by-products
  • Reduce waste within our manufacturing facilities
  • Rethink our various packing and shipping solutions into more sustainable methods
  • Always have the environment in mind when implementing new procedures

Eco-friendly holiday presents

In 2021 we started a new tradition.

As sustainability is an important part of our way of business, we decided on a donation as a holiday present that benefits both people and planet. This initiative arose to prevent sending presents around the world, increasing our carbon emission footprint.

Instead, every year, we decide which cause we would like to contribute to.

2023:

This year we are joining the fight for a world without plastic pollution through the non-profit organization Plastic Change. 

We wish to contribute to their vision: A zero waste society.

This includes working for a society where all resources are used optimally in closed circular systems and through solutions that reduce plastic production and consumption for the benefit of both the environment, climate, and health.

2022: 

In 2022 we joined the fight to clean up plastic from the ocean through the non-profit organization: The Ocean Cleanup.

Since 2013 the organization has been cleaning the world’s oceans of plastic pollution. We wish to contribute to their goal of cleaning up 90% of floating ocean plastic pollution by 2040.

Their work is not limited to cleaning plastic that is already in the ocean, but to also prevent plastic on its way to the ocean via rivers and has already resulted in the removal of more than 1,36 million kgs of trash from the environment.

2021: 

In 2021 the donation was given to the Danish non profit organization:

Plant et Træ / Plant a tree

The organization has HRH, Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark as patron.

Since 1988 the organization has planted more than 1.5 million trees in Denmark along with children. They have already planted 350 orchards to children’s institutions, and additionally 370 institutions are on a waiting list. On the day of the event where the trees are planted, the children’s parents, grandparents and the staff of the institution spend the day together and educate the children about the benefits of planting trees for the environment and climate.

This holiday present coincides with our vision to become more environmentally friendly. That is why we offer our ECO-TEK product line that provides our customers with a unique opportunity to meet their sustainability goals and to achieve their regulatory requirements.

How ice packs are a part of our Sustainable Partnership Program:

A collaboration has been started with several Danish universities on reusing ice packs. Upon receiving products shipped cooled, the ice packs are collected and kept until Kementec picks them up. At Kementec, they are reused when shipping our products. In that way, we extend the lifetime of the ice packs and reduce the waste of resources.

This has inspired us to expand our program, which is why we now introduce our Sustainable Partnership Program! The purpose of our program is to rethink sustainable business!

We are very excited about the feedback we have received regarding our initiatives with Ice Packs and have a goal to expand the Sustainable Partnership Program to other Nordic countries that might be interested.

Why we care:

At Kementec we understand the importance of a sustainable business. For more than 35 years our goal has been to be one of the leading companies within the field of immunoassay development. Our company has evolved a lot through the years, and we look forward to continuing our journey in the future. Click here to read more about our business profile.  

Our environmental initiatives arose from our own visions and goals within the company but are also highly inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals set forth by the UN.

We are aware of our social responsibility which is why we offer our ECO-TEK products with focus on sustainable solutions. None of our ECO-TEK products contain BSA or organic solutions like NMP which is a great advantage and benefit for your business, as it contributes to an easy cross border and paperwork process, while simultaneously reducing regulatory concerns and adds to a healthier work environment for employees.

Want to join our Sustainable Partnership Program?

Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any suggestions to other initiatives that can become a part of our program. We need to rethink the way we do business and have both people and the planet in mind!
