Elis sets a goal of zero net carbon emissions
ELIS UK is aiming for net 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 restroom services, to businesses of all sizes. It is the first laundry and textile services company in the UK to make a net zero commitment.
Elis rents its work clothes to its customers, collects used items, does their laundry and any necessary maintenance, before returning them. Its circular economy approach, including the care of textiles, to help ensure their use for longer, its focus on waste design, its use of the latest technology and highly efficient industrial laundries, means it already offers a carbon footprint option for its customers.
The company’s new commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2045 is the next natural step. It is based on Elis’s ambitious commitments for 2025, which consist in particular of accelerating its development of innovative and responsible products and services, reducing its environmental footprint and ensuring that it has a positive impact on its populations and its communities.
The commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2045 covers all emissions, including direct emissions from its operations, indirect emissions related to the energy used in its operations and all other emissions related to its activities . The company invests in its operations, processes, logistics and supply chain to achieve its goal.
Mark Franklin, Director of Corporate Operations 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. By announcing both our intention to achieve net zero carbon emissions and the time frame we are aiming for, we are the first UK laundry and textile services company to make such a commitment. We look forward to working with customers and suppliers to achieve this ambitious goal.
