Liverpool-based business Algeos has announced a new initiative to achieve net zero by 2028. The project is part of the company's ongoing investments in ESG and how it is changing its manufacturing processes to meet its commitments to sustainability.

Algeos' goal is to monitor and minimise its carbon footprint, as well as improve overall sustainability, to meet the NHS Net Zero standards for suppliers to disclose a carbon reduction by April 2024.

The company's plans for the future include making new uniforms out of only recycled materials, adopting a full "Net Zero" strategy, and investing more in renewable energy and electric vehicles.

Algeos hardly sends waste to landfills from its operating and manufacturing sites, and it has entirely revamped its packaging, replacing plastic tape with paper and using paper shredding instead of bubble wrap.

In addition, the company uses additive manufacturing, which significantly minimises waste and is part of the research and development process.

Max Sheridan, managing director, said:

"I am immensely proud to be launching this new Net Zero initiative as part of our further investment in ESG. Reducing our carbon footprint and achieving Net Zero is something we take very seriously here at Algeos, and we’re implementing some important procedures to be more sustainable.

"At Algeos, we are committed to achieving net zero by 2028. To continue our progress toward achieving this, we have launched several carbon reduction targets that are a testament to our reputation in the manufacturing industry and our aim to be carbon neutral, while continuing to provide our employees with refillable water bottles and a cycle-to-work scheme as well."
