When it comes to sustainability, CareFlex is very conscious of its carbon footprint so ensures 90% of their suppliers are based in England. “We make every effort to ensure that our processes, from design to sourcing and supply chain through to distribution of our products and disposal of our waste, support our commitment to protecting our environment,” Craig explains.
“Wherever possible, we aim to prevent the creation of waste. One area that we have succeeded in this is through our investment in reusable stillages that are used to transport our components from our supply partners to our factory in Devon and back again. Reducing our usage of single-use packaging, including the reduction and, in some cases, elimination of cardboard boxes and polythene bags.”
“To support our environmental drive, we will work towards our ISO14001 accreditation throughout 2023, which will help us further develop our systems and processes to reduce waste and pollution across our processes and activities.”
