Lancashire healthcare company on a path to net zero

Award-winning care home supplier CareHomeLife has announced its commitment to make 100% of its operations carbon neutral, to support them on their journey to Net Zero.

The company will achieve carbon neutrality through operational efficiencies, including an emissions reduction plan. 

Eddy Fishwick, Chairman of CareHomeLife said “This is a decision that feels ethically right to me both professionally and personally. An integral part of our strategy for 2022 and beyond is prioritising people and planet whilst protecting care homes’ pockets.

“For integrity it is important we walk the talk. Our intentions include working closely with manufacturers to reduce the carbon footprint of our products meaning we can champion the sustainability goals of our care home customers too. Collectively, we can and must do more.”

CareHomeLife have appointed Auditel, a leading UK Cost, Procurement and Carbon Solutions Company, to support them on their journey toward Net Zero.

Eddy continued: “It is an ambitious plan and one which the whole team is fully committed to. In alignment with our people, planet and pocket promise, we are all aware of the ever-increasing impacts of climate change. I have been inspired by other companies setting impressive targets and it is vital that as a business we make our contribution to building a sustainable working world.”

Rob Allison, Carbon Solutions Director at Auditel added. “We are delighted to be working with CareHomeLife, a genuine champion of sustainability in healthcare supplies to care homes. We look forward to working with the team and their supply chain to help them achieve an industry recognised standard of carbon neutrality.”
