As a recognition of excellence, Hypnos has a royal warrant as bedding and upholstery manufacturers to HM Queen Elizabeth II.

The Challenge

Hypnos began working with us in 2011 as they wanted to improve their sustainability, reduce their emissions and costs, and give themselves a competitive advantage. 

They had an aim of achieving carbon neutrality as this was something they considered essential to their core values. 

Carbon Footprint Ltd's Solution  

We provide Hypnos with a sustainability programme, assisting with their carbon management and legal compliance, which includes;

The appraisal reports produced highlight the problem areas and include recommendations on how to reduce their emissions. 

Carbon Offsetting  

In order to achieve carbon neutrality in line with our PAS 2060 programme, Hypnos offset the remainder of their emissions by supporting a variety of our QAS certified environmental projects. These projects also support the local communities by providing social and environmental benefits. 

Hypnos has supported a range of offsetting projects including:

UK tree planting and VCS - planting 600 trees in schools in the UK

Wind and Hydro power projects in India

Wind energy project in China 

Landfill Gas project in Indonesia

Efficient Cookstove project in Kenya

Preventing deforestation projects in Brazil


The staff at Hypnos even assisted with the tree planting at several locations in the UK.


    Since 2011, Hypnos has reduced their carbon emissions by 66.7% per £M turnover and 53.7% per employee.

    As the majority of their emissions are caused by their site gas and electricity, these are the areas in which the largest savings have been made. Hypnos has managed to decrease their emissions, whilst still growing as a business primarily through fuel switching, ongoing improvements to energy efficiency and increased energy management.

    Hypnos has also achieved ESOS and ISO 14001 compliance and is now the first British bed and mattress manufacturer to achieve carbon neutrality and comply with PAS 2060.
