Dreamtex puts major sustainability plans into action

Licensed bedding specialist, Dreamtex has put major sustainability plans into action.

A returning Sustainability in Licensing Conference sponsor, Dreamtex has most recently removed single-use plastic from across all its in-store product in most retailers and turned to 100% recycled polyester for cushion fillings.

On top of this, the team has implemented numerous in-house policies, such as the introduction of soft plastics recycling points, mixed recycling points, and a switch to recycled paper within its own operations.

By engaging stakeholders in the conversation of sustainable development, Dreamtex has even been able to begin work mapping its Scope 3 emissions – those that typically make up 80% to 90% of a business’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

“Data has already been collected for Scope 1 and 2 emissions with an aim to start sharing reports soon,” said Andy Downie, commercial director at Dreamtex. “Scope 3 is vast in scale but by breaking it into downstream and upstream categories, we hope to make the collection, reporting and reducing of these emissions manageable.”
