April 29, 2021 – Batavia, New York – First Wave Technologies, Inc. (“First Wave,” “FWT” and “Company”), a medical device company developing products for the acute care and long-term care market, is pleased to announce its diligent efforts in adhering to best practices related to environmental awareness in product manufacturing.
First Wave is pleased to share that the Company’s long-term commitment is to work with manufacturing partners who employ sustainable, carbon-free manufacturing techniques using energy-efficient equipment, carbon-free manufacturing, onsite green energy generation, green utility power, and carbon credits. As such, First Wave is supporting the larger movement to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG), eliminate carbon footprints, and lower overall environmental impact and the consumption of natural resources including water, land, air and non-renewable fossil fuels.
First Wave’s CEO, Brian Bell, stated, “Working with an environmentally conscious, carbon-neutral manufacturer is extremely important to us. Especially in the healthcare industry, single-use products are highly used and often mandatory for safety reasons and to prevent patient infection through cross contamination. By identifying a manufacturing partner who is consciously aware of the importance of maintaining a sustainable, carbon-free manufacturing business, we are working to offer better patient outcomes as well as to preserve the environment.”
During the first quarter of 2021, First Wave is pleased to report 1,675 lbs of carbon savings in comparison to the industry average for the same level of product manufacturing. Carbon savings was determined using the greenhouse gas equivalencies calculator, which uses the AVoided Emissions and geneRation Tool (AVERT); the U.S. national weighted average CO2 marginal emission rate to convert reductions of kilowatt-hours into avoided units of carbon dioxide emissions. First Wave will continue to report carbon savings on a quarter-by- quarter basis as part of the Company’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.
