Our Social Responsibility

Social Commitment and Sustainability Are Important to Us

Under the umbrella of Plan International Deutschland e.V we have founded the Arthrex Foundation. Working with Plan International, our foundation regularly finances self-help projects around the world. Our aim is to provide development opportunities for children in need. You will find graphic reports of current and completed projects here.

Arthrex also supports the Alwin Jäger Foundation which has set itself the goal of driving forward arthroscopy and minimally invasive orthopedics around the world. The foundation provides surgeons and medical experts with further training opportunities, promotes studies, and awards grants.

We Set Great Store by Sustainability and the Careful Use of Resources

That's why we have introduced an environmental and sustainability management system in accordance with EMAS III and ISO 14001. With this, we want to protect natural living conditions and leave behind a "green" legacy for future generations. As such, corporate sustainability also plays a major role at Arthrex.

A few examples are listed below:
Use of green energy
• Fleet of electric cars
• Company bikes for short distances and bike stands in front of the buildings
• Office supplies from recycled materials



We Are Committed to Helping Nature and Honey Bees

Since 2017 our premises in Munich have been home to three bee colonies.  The colonies are looked after by our beekeeper, a licensed vet. She shows us the results of her work on an annual basis. Employees have the chance to see how honey is made and also get to taste a sample. Our Bee happy @ Arthrex honey can be procured by staff by in exchange for a donation. All the proceeds go to the Arthrex Foundation.
