Sunlight, the UK’s market leader in textile rental and laundering services, has cut its annual carbon dioxide emissions by 21.5 per cent in six years, and has reduced its water usage by more than 2 million cubic meters per annum over the same period.
Steve Finch, Sunlight’s managing director, says: “As a business we have a strong commitment to meeting the highest environmental standards. Our work with The Carbon Trust since 2005 has delivered an annual cut in carbon dioxide emissions of over 30,000 tonnes, equal to the emissions of almost 5,000 households.
“As well as power, water is essential to many of the processes we carry out, and we are dedicated to cutting our usage, recycling and reusing – a vital move at the best of times, but now even more critical as the country faces a drought. We’ve more than halved our water usage since 2005, reducing it by over 2 million cubic meters of water annually. That’s the same amount as 37,000 people would use in a year, equivalent to a town the size of Leighton Buzzard.”
“Our commitment doesn’t stop there. We’ll continue to seize every opportunity to invest in reducing the impact our business has on the environment.”
Sunlight is the UK leader in textile rental and laundering services for industry, commerce and the NHS and public sector organisations. Every year the company collects, sorts, launders and delivers over 750 million items - more than 2 million every working day. It has more than 9,000 employees across 60 sites in the UK, and services thousands of organisations across all sectors of the economy.
