Delivering innovation in an accountable way

As a global business and significant local employer, we have responsibilities to our people and planet.

Every day we challenge ourselves to really live our mission as we carry out our work – to make a positive difference to our customers, our users, our associates and the environment. This is powered by a core pillar that is embedded at the heart of everything we do – sustainability. It influences our business strategy and defines our culture as we look towards the future.


Reflecting on this past year, one that has marked our 70th anniversary, we can trace the first development of our environmental credentials back to the 1990s. We have come a long way since then and it is particularly rewarding to see all our initiatives starting to make the positive difference that we work for, connecting sustainable behaviour with ethical and moral business outcomes.

Responsible Action Report 2024

Owen Mumford is one of the first medical device companies in the world to achieve B Corp certification and has set science-based targets to achieve net zero by 2045, as part of its long-established and continually evolving sustainability agenda. In this year’s report, we want to go through how the medical device industry can review and maybe rethink how its products are made, and how business is carried out.

We hope to inspire other companies in our sector to implement their own real action plan and work towards the goal of safe and sustainable future for everyone.
