Bentham Instruments recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods, with regular review points. We will encourage customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same.


Bentham’s continued achievement and success can be attributed to the ongoing dedication and commitment of our remarkable staff. In response, we provide a safe and relaxed working environment, in-house training programs, performance based incentives and a culture of innovation and achievement.

Health and safety is a critical factor in Bentham’s operation, with multiple systems and review-processes in place to ensure that safety and precaution are exercised across all levels of the establishment. Bentham continually monitor and govern all internal processes and report on all activities to safeguard against unnecessary or unacceptable risks to health.


Bentham’s culture is one of honesty, integrity and responsibility. We require each member of staff, alongside our various partners and distributors, to carry out business in a fair and reasonable manner, upholding our responsibility on both a local and global scale. Our vision of ethical conduct is used as a guide in daily business activity.
