Our ESG Commitments

Working together for a better tomorrow

The Mission

Our mission is “To enable healthcare providers around the world to deliver exceptional outcomes for patients through accessible CONMED solutions.” Our approach to ESG initiatives aligns with this mission.

ESG is a standard that is rapidly becoming a business norm, and our ESG reporting demonstrates how we invest in a future that will:

  • Leverage dedicated resources to lead the effort
  • Increase our corporate longevity and resilience 
  • Attract top talent to the organization 
  • Benefit communities 
  • Respect the environment in which we live and work 

Environmental Initiatives

We have been actively engaged and recognized for implementing environmentally conscious programs for many years. Our manufacturing facilities and distribution centers are continuously incorporating ways to enhance our environmental efforts into our daily processes.

Our Utica, New York manufacturing facility is ISO 14001 certified since 2020. Our Chihuahua, Mexico manufacturing facility has held the Clean Industry Certification from PROFEPA since 2015.

Putting People First

We’re passionate about helping healthcare providers transform patient lives worldwide. We donate medical equipment to countries in need and support TEAMFund, an organization that aligns with our vision to expand access to affordable, appropriate, and sustainable medical technologies that address unmet healthcare needs in the world’s most resource-constrained populations.

CONMED’s executive leadership has created policies that uphold our ethical principles.


Giving Back

In the United States, we partner with the United Way to serve the greatest needs in the individual communities they serve. While we give through both corporate and individual donations, CONMED team members also volunteer their time to give back to the communities in which we serve.

Strong Leadership

We believe that a strong, diverse, and evolving Board of Directors is vital for effective governance. Our Board has an average director tenure of 5.8 years and the committee chair rotates every 5 years. The Board receives regular updates on ESG initiatives.
