09 Aug Steris IMS to host sustainability workshop for Barwell occupiers
Steris IMS will be hosting a sustainability workshop for businesses at its Barwell HQ on 19 October.
The event, at units 1-4, will offer practical advice on reaching net zero.
The company sterilises medical equipment for clients including St Helier and Epsom University Hospitals NHS Trust, and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and is supporting the net zero drive for the NHS.
The event follows the Barwell Business Breakfast on 17 March which had sustainability as its theme.
Steris IMS’ Commercial Finance Manager, Mandeep Dulku, said: “Sustainability of materials, processes, partners – everything – was considered when we constructed our facility. Also, we take social values as a core part of our business, we’re part of a community.”
Mandeep, who sits on Steris’ sustainability and social value group in the UK, highlighted how the company was supporting the NHS to reduce its carbon footprint.
He said: “The NHS has set itself an ambitious target of being at net zero by 2025. We’re actually pushing ourselves to be a year ahead of them because as their trusted partner, we have to be one step ahead. Their core priorities are patients, not necessarily sustainability, so we’re going to do everything we can to support them and help them achieve their targets.”
