Cura?ao achieves Sustainability Standards Award

After just one year, our sustainability team in the Caribbean island of Cura?ao achieved their first milestone – attaining Cura?ao’s Minimum Sustainability Standards Level 1 Award. This followed a site audit by the Cura?ao Business Council for Sustainable Development.

A central element of this award was waste segregation (regular waste, plastic, aluminium and cardboard), recycling and waste reduction. In total, an impressive 25% of waste is recycled in Cura?ao.

The award is a result of our employees caring for people and the planet, while making a profit. Their enthusiasm for creating a sustainable environment is inspiring, not only for Smith & Nephew employees across the globe, but also for the local community, as we are only the second company on the island to have received this award.
