REPORT: Carbon neutrality in the warewashing sector is now in touching distance

Carbon neutrality in the warewashing sector is as little as four years away thanks to sustainable manufacturing practices, Meiko has said.

The company, which has published a first ever sustainability report detailing a three-part strategy to a greener future by focusing on the ‘3 Ps’ of product, production and participation, insists it is publicly committed to driving forward the measures needed to protect the climate.

Group CEO, Dr Stefan Scheringer, described sustainability as “an issue of attitudes”. He said: “Doing business sustainably has been the Meiko ethos since the company’s earliest days. We, Meiko, think in terms of generations, not financial quarters.”

The 3P strategy details how Meiko has extended the service life of its dishwashing products and is further improving the sustainable performance by increasing the level of repairability.

Its production facilities now generate their own power from sustainable resources, for example.

Participation goals involve Meiko partners and workforce taking conscious actions to develop a more sustainable company, even down to working with employees on travel and transport or the food choices in the works canteen.

The drive to sustainability remains a worldwide goal for Meiko Group.

In the UK, the business is also working towards carbon neutrality through good practice in its HQ and storage facilities, as well as through its engineering support.

Solving a technical problem on the first call out is a high priority, for instance, because it means fewer journeys, less CO2 emissions and lower costs.
