At Hypnos, we're proud that our decade-long commitment to carbon neutrality and environmentally-friendly product design has been recognised with a prestigious 'Planet Mark - Carbon Neutral Certification'.
Having been carbon neutral for over a decade in compliance with PAS 2060 and offset over 10,294 tonnes of CO2e along the way, we've demonstrated our pioneering and long-running environmental credentials since becoming the first bed manufacturer in the world to have become carbon neutral.
The Planet Mark is committed to the United Nations Decade of Action, which cover everything from sustainable living to climate change and creating a circular economy. It is a highly distinguished sustainability certification for businesses in the UK and internationally, recognising continuous improvements within a company across a wide range of areas including building strong employee engagement to create a sustainable culture.
When it comes to carbon reduction and tackling its footprint, we've implemented a range of robust measures. This focuses on using renewable natural resources, and making sure that all our product designs and ethical bed production are focused on low-carbon solutions. Our carbon offsetting and social responsibility programmes include working in the community with local schools and conservation groups, planting trees to sequester carbon and build biodiversity environments.
For over a decade Hypnos has ensured sustainability infiltrates every area of our business. For that reason, our products are made with 100% natural and sustainable fibres, meaning they’re fully recyclable and don’t end up at landfill sites at the end of their lifetime. In addition, all Hypnos mattresses are free of harmful and allergy-related chemicals – with no use of any any synthetic, chemical-based foams or memory foams.
Steve Malkin, CEO and founder of The Planet Mark tells us that “understanding and reducing the impact that your business has on the planet is absolutely essential and we know that Hypnos has been unrelenting in its pursuit of truly sustainable beds, delivering outstanding products for both its customers and the planet. We’re pleased to see such strong commitment to the environment and to social responsibility from a well-known and respected British brand and it’s great to work together to achieve common environmental goals.”
Hypnos takes an active role in climate change, carbon reduction, preserving natural resources and minimising single-use plastic pollution to protect the planet. Not only do we support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, but our Chief Executive Officer, James Keen, has also personally pledged Hypnos’ support to HRH The Prince of Wales’ Terra Carta recovery plan to put planet first.
Hypnos has developed another industry first by creating a recyclable, eco-friendly packaging solution made from sustainable and renewable sources to eliminate the use of harmful, fossil-based products.
At the heart of the packaging is sugar cane, a renewable and carbon dioxide depleting resource. Sugar cane ethanol is combined with recycled plastic, helping those who use it to massively reduce their carbon footprint. The use of ethanol, a bi-product of sugar cane production and recycled plastics that form a green polyethylene, means the creation is carbon neutral and 100% recyclable as well.
