Bed manufacturer of the year* and proud Royal Warrant holder, Hypnos has received further recognition for excellence by being credited the first UK bed makers to achieve the BS PAS 2060 Carbon Neutrality Standard.By working with a management partner, Carbon Footprint Ltd, Hypnos successfully introduced a robust carbon management plan, outlining clear objectives and targets to help reduce and offset carbon emissions, enabling the company to meet the stringent requirements of the Standard.
Through its on-going commitment to excellence in improving its ‘green’ strategy, Hypnos has implemented a number of recycling and sustainability initiatives. This included introducing a new, innovative mattress material called eOlus™ fibre, which is manufactured from recycled plastic bottles and acts as a substitute for synthetic foams. In addition, all timber used in Hypnos’ divans is FSC or PEFC certified, ensuring that it is sourced from sustainable managed forests, reinforcing that Hypnos uses only natural, recyclable and sustainable materials.
Further to this, Hypnos partnered with Tree Appeal with an aim to plant more than 1,000 trees a year across the UK and Uganda; educating children in their local communities on the importance of caring for the environment while helping to offset the CO2 emissions generated by the company’s international business.
Chris Ward, Director of Marketing, Hypnos, comments, “Our company is strongly committed to a range of ecologically-responsible projects as we work continually to reduce our carbon emissions through the adoption of a robust Environmental and Carbon Management Plan.
“We work extremely hard as a company to minimise our carbon emissions and the impact on the environment generated by our business. Our challenge is to consider sustainability, recycling and the environment in everything we do and to demonstrate that we care about the environment we live in.
“We believe that our new Carbon Neutral accreditation will further cement our commitment to designing and manufacturing beautiful, comfortable and sustainable beds that guarantee a great night’s sleep.”
