** Champion Cleaners’ solar project aims to reduce power consumption to zero by 2025**

Staying green for many businesses is challenging, especially for those whose operations require considerable amounts of energy, such as the dry-cleaning business. Champion Cleaners is one among a few companies that have been successful in implementing sustainable features to their operations. A trusted brand in the UAE, Champion Cleaners uses eco-friendly products, the latest technology, and well-thought-out practices to reduce consumption of energy and their carbon footprint. Recently, the company was awarded the Global Best Practice Award for Sustainability in Retail Textile Cleaning (Big) Category. The award was sponsored by CINET, an international umbrella organization for International Professional Textile Care Industry. The award recognizes companies for setting a trend in sustainability in the region.

Champion Cleaners, in retaining their strong agenda to sustain and reduce their carbon emission is soon to announce the launch of a major project that aims to offset their electricity expenditure considerably. The plan to introduce a comprehensive solar power project is also underway with the goal of bringing their electricity consumption to zero by 2025.

Existing eco-friendly and sustainable features that have been implemented at Champion Cleaners headquarters include a Building Management System that reduces electricity usage by 10% and an Alliance Wet Cleaning Technology that allows Champion Cleaners to reduce their water consumption by 50%. Champion Cleaners are known for their use of Green Earth Dry Cleaning Technology which significantly reduces Perc dependency. This method had been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and several green groups worldwide. However, with this reduction in chemicals came the challenge of destroying bacteria and other germs effectively, and Champion Cleaners overcame this challenge with the specialized use of the I-Genius technology used ozone to remove harmful bacteria and deodorize all items for a chemical-free and safe result.

All packaging used at Champion Cleaners has been carefully evaluated to determine the most effective and resourceful way of recycling and reusing, to which, 90% of all plastic and paper and a 90% of all hangers used within the headquarters and central operating plant are recycled and reused. Thus, in so many ways, Champion Cleaners is set to majorly reduce their carbon footprint over the coming years.
