Warewashing equipment manufacturer Meiko claims achieving carbon-neutrality is just four years away thanks to a manufacturing plan that it believes is the most sustainable in the industry.

The company, which operates its US facility out of La Vergne, Tennessee, has just published its first ever sustainability report detailing a three-part strategy to a greener future by focusing on the ‘3 Ps’ of product, production and participation.

It insists it is publicly committed to driving forward the measures needed to protect the climate.

Group CEO, Dr Stefan Scheringer, described sustainability as “an issue of attitudes”. He said: “Doing business sustainably has been the Meiko ethos since the company’s earliest days. We, Meiko, think in terms of generations, not financial quarters.”

The 3P strategy details how Meiko has extended the service life of its dishwashing products and is further improving the sustainable performance by increasing the level of repairability.

Its production facilities in Germany now generate their own power from sustainable resources, for example.

Participation goals involve Meiko partners and workforce taking conscious actions to develop a more sustainable company, even down to working with employees on travel and transport or the food choices in the works canteen.
