Ethical - Rocket Medical prides itself on its ethical approach to its business and would never knowingly pursue any course which it felt was inappropriate, potentially damaging or misleading. Bribery Policy - Rocket Medical values its reputation for ethical behaviour and for financial probity. It recognises that over and above the commission of any crime, any involvement in bribery will also reflect adversely on its reputation. As a result, Rocket Medical has set out a comprehensive Bribery Policy Statement for its Board members, employees and business partners with the aim of minimising the company's exposure to bribery of any kind.


Environmental policies makes sound business sense for our customers, employees and the planet. Rocket Medical believe that we have a responsibility to care for and protect the environment. Whilst we manufacture and market medical devices which, by design are disposable, we are fully committed to improving environmental performance across all of our business activities. We have committed to using renewable resources wherever possible and developing manufacturing processes and products such that any adverse effects on the environment are reduced to a practical minimum. We recognise that as our understanding of sustainable development improves, it will be necessary to re-examine this environmental policy and other policies in line with this learning.
