Hull-based green cleaning company Bio-D has reduced its carbon emissions per single product it creates by 13% in just one year, as the business releases its 2024 Sustainability and Impact Report highlighting its latest environmental achievements.

The manufacturer of environmentally responsible, ethically sound, vegan cleaning products - which secured B Corp Certification in 2022 - is now in its fifth year of reporting its green statistics as part of its commitment to be ethical and transparent throughout its practices. Another highlight from this year’s report includes how the company has saved over 70 tonnes of CO2 emissions by using bottles created from 100% post-consumer plastic.

Proud to be celebrating its fifth year of public reporting, Bio-D’s Sustainability and Impact Report outlines the economic, social and environmental impact of the company and is an opportunity to review its 2023 goals and look at its achievements over the last 12 months, as well as look at potential areas of improvement and targets for the year ahead.

Heather Nixon, sustainability, NPD and regulatory manager at Bio-D, said: “For half a decade now we have been reporting on our practices and goals. We have been holding ourselves accountable, and that in itself has driven great changes and improvement. With the increase of greenwashing and ever growing ‘eco’ brands, our customers can be assured that creating environmentally responsible products is far more than wording on a label."

Lloyd Atkin, managing director at Bio-D, added: “The past year has seen some significant environmental achievements here, none of which could happen without our dedicated team that go above and beyond on our ever-evolving green journey.”
