Environmental Policy

OFITE Environmental Aspect, Impact, and Scope Statement

OFITE designs, manufactures, sells, and services laboratory equipment and reagents. As a result, our company has created a complex supply chain, manufacturing process, and waste stream. We recognize that our environmental impact is not limited to our facility. As a global supplier, our environmental impact can cross many borders.

OFITE excludes none of our activities within our scope. We will monitor and continuously improve all of our own activities and source our supply chain and logistical services through environmentally responsible suppliers.
