Food manufacturing workwear & laundry services company, Elis UK, announces net zero carbon emissions target

Leading workwear and laundry services provider for the food manufacturing sector, Elis UK, has announced that it is aiming for net zero carbon emissions by 2045, in line with the UK government’s ambition to be carbon neutral by 2050.

The company provides workwear and laundry services, as well as washroom services, to businesses of all sizes in the food manufacturing sector. It is the first laundry and textile services company in the UK to make a net zero commitment.

Elis rents its workwear to its customers, collecting used items, undertaking their laundry and any necessary maintenance, before returning them. Its circular economy approach, including the maintenance of textiles, to help ensure they are used for longer, its focus on designing waste out, its use of the latest technology and highly efficient Hycare industrial laundries, means that it is already providing its customers with a lower carbon footprint option.

The company’s new commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2045 is the natural next step. It builds on Elis’s ambitious 2025 commitments, which include accelerating its development of innovative and responsible products and services, reducing its environmental footprint, and ensuring that it has a positive impact on its people and communities.

The commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2045 covers all emissions, including direct emissions from its operations, indirect emissions linked to the energy used in its operations and all other emissions linked to its activities.

The company is  investing in its operations, processes, logistics and supply chain to achieve its objective.

Mark Franklin, Company Operations Director for Elis UK, explains: “Our customers are increasingly concerned about sustainability and climate change in their own operations and in their supply chains, just as we are at Elis.

“Announcing both our intent to attain net zero carbon emissions and the timescale we are targeting, makes us the first laundry and textile services company in the UK to make such a commitment. We’re looking forward to working with both customers and suppliers to meet this challenging objective.”
