Warewasher manufacturer Meiko has published its first sustainability report, detailing its three-part strategy to a greener future.
The business is publicly committing to driving forward the measures needed to protect the climate and will focus on three ‘P's: product, production and participation.
The strategy details how Meiko has extended the service life of its dishwashing products and is further extending the sustainable performance by increasing the level of repairability.
"Sustainability is an issue of attitudes," said Stefan Scheringer, Meiko Group chief executive. "Doing business sustainably has been the Meiko ethos since the company's earliest days and we think in terms of generations, not financial quarters."
Meiko production facilities now generate their own power from sustainable resources. Participation goals involve Meiko partners and workforce taking actions to develop a more sustainable company, even down to working with employees on travel and transport or the food choices in canteens.
"When it comes to dishwashing products, Meiko's sustainability report brings good news for our customers and the planet," added Paul Anderson, Meiko UK's managing director.
"Meiko has tirelessly monitored and measured the performance of its machines over decades and the benefit for our customers is that reliability is the best ever. The fact that spare parts are being made available for 20 years gives some idea of how long Meiko expects its machines to last in the future.
"The drive to sustainability is a worldwide goal for Meiko Group. In the UK we also work towards carbon neutrality, through good practice in our HQ and storage facilities, but also through our engineering support," added Anderson.
