Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production
Sustainable Development Goal 12 is about ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns and reducing our environmental footprint on nature by changing the way we consume and produce.
Sub-goal 12.5 is about reducing the amount of waste through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
At Wolturnus, we produce wheelchairs with a long lifetime, which are often purchased for recycling by municipalities and hospitals. We often see that wheelchairs are used and reused for up to 10 years.
We are happy to contribute to recycling in the public sector, but we also want to increase recycling in our production. We, therefore, offer Danish municipalities and hospitals to take back obsolete wheelchairs that no longer can be used. The aids are disassembled in our Danish production, and small parts are recycled in new wheelchairs. The scheme is free for all municipal and regional depots.
