Quality and the Environment
Working within the Principles of Sustainable Development
In 1994, Lojer was the first Nordic hospital equipment manufacturer to receive ISO9001 certification. The company is continuously developing its processes, and their effectiveness is assessed regularly.
Lojer hospital furnishings are CE marked according to the EU Medical Device Directive MDD 93/42 EEC and international laws, and they are designed and tested according to EU medical device standards wherever applicable. Lojer was the first hospital bed manufacturer in Finland to begin having its products independently tested by the Finnish Technical Research Centre (VTT) in its medical technology laboratories.
Caring about the environment has been a daily part of Lojer Oy’s activities for decades, and the company is committed to continually developing its environmental policy. Activities are continuously being developed according to applicable laws and regulations. Our commitment to recycling can be seen, for example, in the 100% recycling of aluminium waste in our own foundry.
Since 1.1.2011 all Lojer products have been manufactured using certified electricity from 100% renewable sources (hydro and wind power). This has reduced our carbon dioxide emissions by around 800 000 kg per year compared to the previous energy provider.
As an EcoStart pilot company, Lojer has carried out an environmental assessment and developed an environmental programme according to ISO14001. The company is also a stakeholder in Ekokem Oy, and a member of PYR Oy (Pakkausalan Ympäristörekisteri environmental register) and SELT Ry (an organisation for companies in the electrical and electronics fields). Alongside minimising the environmental impact of our products and production, the continuous development of environmental protection measures and the working environment are among our most important environmental aims.
