Mitre Linen, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of bedding, towelling and soft furnishings to the hospitality industry, has been awarded ISO certification in two areas which benefit the environment.
ISO 500001 for Energy Management is awarded for the implementation of systems, which integrate energy management into every part of a business. ISO 140001 for Environmental Management recognises an effective systematic approach to reducing the adverse impact business activities, processes, products and services have on the environment.
“Establishing more environmentally friendly ways of doing business has been one of our key objectives over the past few years,” said Mitre Linen general manager Kate Gough.
“Everyone in the company has played a part in helping us to introduce greener ways of working while maintaining our high standards of quality and efficiency. The Mitre team is very proud of this achievement, but we don’t see it as the end of the road. We will continue to introduce new green initiatives wherever possible to further enhance our contribution to a cleaner, greener world. We’re already asking colleagues to come up with more ideas.”
