As the first operator in its sector to announce its target of net zero emissions by 2045, workwear, linen and laundry services provider, Elis UK, is one of only 12 companies selected to join the NHS Net Zero International Leadership Group. With businesses seeking to improve their sustainability credentials, Elis is the first company in its sector to announce its target of net zero emissions by 2045. Using a circular economy model – where customers’ items are maintained, repaired, reused and redeployed – Elis reduces CO2 emissions by up to 37 percent* and water consumption by 48 percent*.

Marketing and customer experience manager, Paul Swift, said: ‘Our model reduces the consumption of natural resources and keeps products in use.

‘Last year our CO2 emissions, per kg, of delivered, laundered textiles ended up 19% lower than those in 2010. We want to make our customers’ lives easier and contribute to their success through a sustainable, responsible process.’

Over the last three years, Elis UK has reduced its CO2 emissions by 33% and its water consumption per kilo of laundered linen by 23%. As part of its commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions, the company is undertaking a number of initiatives to improve its energy-efficiency.
