The First Carbon-Neutral Bedmaker

And on the topic of wellbeing and sustainability, Hypnos are celebrating…

Royal warrant holder, sustainable sleep brand, and HIX exhibitor, Hypnos, has announced that its decade-long commitment to carbon neutrality and environmentally friendly product design has been recognised with the prestigious ‘The Planet Mark – Carbon Neutral Certification’.

The ethical company was 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’s a highly distinguished 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.

This certification comes shortly after the family-owned British bedmaker announced it had developed an innovative new recyclable, eco-friendly and carbon neutral packaging solution. Made from sugarcane, a renewable and carbon dioxide depleting resource, this new solution will be used for their beds and mattresses across its retail and contract factories.

When it comes to carbon reduction and tackling its footprint, Hypnos has implemented a range of robust measures. This focuses on using renewable natural resources and making sure that all its product designs and ethical bed production are focused on low-carbon solutions. Its 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.

Richard Naylor, Sustainable Development Director at Hypnos Beds, said: “[o]ur commitment to sustainable sleep is something which affects every single corner of our business. Steve Malkin, CEO and founder of The Planet Mark, adds: “[w]e know that Hypnos has been unrelenting in its pursuit of truly sustainable beds, delivering outstanding products for both its customers and the planet.”
