An integral part of our strategy for 2022 and beyond is prioritising people and planet whilst protecting care home’s pockets. For integrity it is important we walk the talk. Our intentions include working closely with manufacturers to reduce the carbon footprint of our products meaning we can champion the sustainability goals of our care home customers too. Collectively, we can and must do more.”

I have been inspired by other companies setting impressive targets and it is vital that as a business we make our contribution to building a sustainable working world.

We have appointed Auditel to help us deliver a substantiated carbon assessment and emissions reduction plan giving us the rigour needed to ensure we work towards our goal in a credible and measured way.”
