Sleepeezee hits green target again

Sleepeezee has maintained its carbon neutral status. 

Last year, Sleepeezee’s 591 solar panels on its factory roof generated 249,160kWh of electricity which avoided a total of 52.59 tCO2e and helped reduce electricity use by 23.78%. 

‘We have been consciously making changes to our operations in order to lower carbon emissions and maintain our carbon neutral status. We are proud to have noted positive changes in our carbon footprint across the company, most notably following the continued positive impact of our energy saving solar panels and the projects we have supported in Brazil and India,’ says Andrew Reene, Sleepeezee health, safety and sustainability manager.

The bed manufacturer continues to offset remaining carbon emissions by supporting two projects : the Pacajai REDD+ Project and the Solar PV plant at Bhadla Rajasthan which work to prevent unplanned deforestation in native forests and replace emissions of greenhouse gases with electricity. 

It has been carbon neutral since 2017.

Since Sleepeezee started measuring its organisational carbon footprint to PAS 2060 standard, using 2018 as a baseline year, it has reduced its absolute carbon emissions by 48.34% (market-based methodology). It has also reduced its TCO2e per £M turnover by 48.89% (location-based methodology) and 64.76% (market-based methodology). 

As Sleepeezee heads towards its centenary year it continues to make efforts to further its sustainability progress. So far in 2023, it has installed eight electric car chargers on its factory site, replaced the final remaining fluorescent tubes with LED lighting in the manufacturing area and is about to take delivery of three new electric forklift trucks, replacing older diesel models.
