As individuals, Biomedical Systems’ employees are dedicated to the conservation of natural resources at home and at the office. Biomedical Systems continuously evaluates all areas of our business to find ways to recycle and recover. Energy efficient lighting, recycling cans and plastic bottles, and many other company initiatives are on-going at all Biomedical Systems offices.
Since 2009, we have recycled over 70,000 lbs. of paper and in the process saved more than 600 trees; 247,000 gallons of water; 105 cubic yards of landfill space; 70.5 barrels of oil; and 144,500 kilowatt hours of energy - enough to power a home for 6 months. Biomedical Systems will continue to support and implement as many green processes throughout its international facilities.
With over 400 global employees, Biomedical Systems prides itself on being a multicultural organization facilitating our clients’ international interests. Our employees speak a combined 21 different languages assisting communication between sites, offices, and patients. The ability to assimilate these different cultures and accompanying viewpoints and ideas into a unified company makes us a stronger, more tolerant, and versatile organization.
