We do not take success for granted and as such believe it is vital to give back to the local and wider community. We also monitor any impact on the environment to ensure we operate in an ethical and honest manner that supports sustainability.
We support national charities such as The Circulation Foundation, the UK's only dedicated vascular charity via our range of Vascular procedure packs, numerous breast cancer charities via our Think Pink gowns, and the local Crazy Hats breast cancer charity with local fundraising activities.
We have worked with many others including international charity Merlin who provide vital aid for Haiti.
Our ongoing commitment to the environment includes the reduction of emissions, optimising packaging to minimise waste, promoting internal and supplier recycling methods, and a strong focus on sustainability.
We take our responsibilities as a manufacturer and distributor very seriously and always strive to improve our practices. We are proud of our environmental initiatives which go above and beyond our statutory obligations and aim to minimize any negative impact on the environment. One such initiative is the Green Route Project.
Green Route is an exciting project which aims to improve the carbon efficiency of FSH's operations. In particular, we are focusing on the network optimisation of our UK logistical operations, fleet renewal, energy efficiency and most importantly our customer interface.
We feel that we can play a huge part in supporting local communities and educational programmes. We are involved with the Wellingborough School's Young Enterprising Scheme and have been providing work experience opportunities for students and school leavers for a number of years.
We are also part of the Park Farm Business Park and Industrial Estate Group who meet regularly to organise charitable initiatives and share best practice.
I have just returned from Ghana and three surgeons performed just over a hundred procedures and trained four residents, in five (very long) days. Thank you for your kind support with the disposable gowns.
These sort of humanitarian missions are impossible without your support. It was a most fulfilling week and I am looking forward to going again next year.
