Sustainability is key for CarbonNeutral Eden Springs
Eden Springs, the leading workplace drinks provider, has offset its carbon emissions across half of its European markets, confirming its position as an environmental leader in the drinks solutions sector.
Since 2010, Eden has been working with the Carbon Neutral Company to minimize the environmental impact of its main water cooler operations, which sees the company deliver 450 million liters of water to a more than half a million offices, across 15 countries. As part of this partnership, Eden carried out a Life Cycle Analysis across its business - a process which estimates the environmental cost across a company's multiple activities and identifies where carbon savings can be made.
Through its ongoing commitment to sustainability, Eden then implemented carbon offsetting investments which have lead to a 100% CarbonNeutral certificationin seven of its markets including the UK, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands. In addition to the carbon offessting Eden has put into place a large number of initiatives to furthermore support its efforts towards developing an ecologically friendly business. These measures include its 'save a cup' campaign, to promote recycling across its office based customers, electronic billing, the development of low energy use water coolers, as well as the introduction of 'long life' water cooler bottles which can be cleaned and used up to 50 times before being recycled. This means one Eden bottle can deliver 950 liters of water in its lifetime.
Raanan Zilberman, CEO of Eden Springs, comments: "As a company, we're dedicated to providing high-quality and practical solutions for customers. Operating across mass markets means it's vital that we maintain awareness of our true environmental impact and minimize our carbon footprint wherever possible. This is something we incorporate in our wider business strategy and we're delighted to be recognized for our commitment through this accreditation. We look forward to working with the Carbon Neutral Company in the future and, as we continue to target new markets with our total drinks solutions portfolio, build on our sustainable success."
