to eco-friendly technologies, green energy and cost-saving measures is ongoing and we
actively work on reducing our impact to the environment.


The Bidvest Laundry Group is in it for the long haul when it comes to sustainability initiatives. We will not put any of our customers’ businesses at risk due to a lack of resources, nor will we allow a business to come to a standstill on our watch.

We do this through:

  • The continuous monitoring and active improvement of water and power consumption through the use of solar energy and water storage and re-use technologies
  • Implementing fuel regulation solutions (such as the FREME heat recovery system) wherever possible to help us significantly lessen our carbon footprint
  • Sourcing chemicals that contain less harmful solvents while exploring other chemical efficiencies.
  • Implementing cost-saving and productivity enhancing technologies, such as Radio Frequency Identification scanning software (RFID), which allows us to automate a number of key processes, including collection, sorting and tracking of garments and linen.
Furthermore, we have contingencies in place such as back-up generators, compressors and boilers, as well as water storage facilities to help eliminate downtime in the event of breakdowns and unscheduled utility disruptions, which is a challenge we face in South Africa daily.
We also take our waste management very seriously and make sure that we dispose of the by-products of our laundry processes responsibly.
