At Sper Scientific, we do our best to ensure that the products we carry conform to or exceed relevant standards such as:
Restriction on Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS)
CE (The letters “CE” stand for “Conformité Européenne” (“European Conformity”). Manufacturer ensures that the product is in conformity with the essential requirements of the applicable EC directives.)
By doing so, we strive to minimize our impact on the Earth by eliminating toxic materials from our manufactured goods, and by using recyclable materials wherever possible.
Like all companies, our purchasing decisions are influenced by costs. However, this is by no means the only factor we consider. At Sper Scientific, we make a conscious effort to ensure that we are purchasing from sustainable sources and choosing products that reduce the impact we have on the environment.
Sper Scientific addresses waste reduction by consuming and throwing away less, by purchasing durable, long-lasting goods, and seeking products and packaging that are free of toxic and non-biodegradable materials. Other ways we seek to reduce waste include:
Packaging — Whenever possible, we reuse every carton that comes into our facility for shipping products to our customers.
Electronic Communications — Unless our customers absolutely demand otherwise, we send all our quotes, invoices and other communications via email. This reduces paper waste as well as fuel emissions from delivery.
Reduced Printing — It is company policy that any document that does not need to be printed be created in electronic format only.
Paper Reuse — Paper that has already been printed on, but no longer holds value based on its content, is reused for fax and copy machines, and is also bound and used as office notebooks. Paper that contains confidential information, or that is printed on each side, is shredded and used as packing material.
