Virox Animal Health

Revolutionary Disinfectants for Infection Control & Biosecurity

Awards, Certifications & Recognitions

Virox has long prided itself on developing and manufacturing cleaners and disinfectants that provided a safer and greener alternative for end users, animals and assets. Proof of this comes with multiple awards and recognition for sustainability, as well as several green certified products (AHP® was both the first EcoLogo registered disinfectant-cleaner in Canada and the first DfE (Design for the Environment) registered hydrogen peroxide disinfectant in the US).

For 2009, the management team at Virox was challenged to look internally at all our activities within the company from materials management to production, research and development to sales and put the concept of “SUSTAINABILITY” into practice. As a result of this focus we created a “GREEN TEAM” which includes members from each department. In addition to creating a Green Team, Virox also decided to pursue LEED Certification for our corporate headquarters. What better way to put sustainability into practice?
