Striving to Make a Conscious Environmental Impact

Emerald’s environmental mission is about making conscious strides forward to furthering our environmental impact through the exploration, development, and investment of new projects that aid in conserving water, energy, and thermal efficiencies that further our goal of conserving natural resources and reducing our carbon footprint.     

We are passionate about saving and do our part by investing in resource saving equipment, technologies, and partnering with material waste recovery programs that build cleaner communities. Through partnership with our healthcare facilities, we take the utmost care in our reusable linen products with aim to provide more reusable programs and reducing the need for disposables.   

We focus investments in:  

  • Continuous Batch Washers (CBWs) that are designed to save on water usage compared to washroom facilities.
  • Dryers and boiler replacements with models that provide more energy conscious results   
  • Water Recycling Systems, Wastewater Heat Recover Systems and Stack Economizers that save in natural gas by recycling our tempered water over boilers that create heat as a natural bioproduct without requiring additional energy.    
  • Gravity-Enabled E-Tech Rail Systems that are designed to use the natural gravity of the bags to help conserve energy as it transports the linen through our facility with added efficiency.
  • Replacing traditional fluorescent lighting with energy saving LED and motion sensors
  • Recycling generated waste materials in the form of plastic soiled linen bags, cardboard, pallets, and retired linen to keep pollutants out of landfills.

As we continue to strive for greater global impact, our key wins include:  

  • Recycling waste to reduce harmful environmental pollutants with an estimated 1,896 TONS of Plastic, Pallets, Cardboard and Paper materials a year. By not sending to landfills, we conserve an average of 189,600 cubic square feet a year in recycled materials which estimates to 2,500,000 pounds of soiled plastic that is recycled each year.
  • We conserve 371 million gallons of water a year by investing in water saving equipment that uses less water per pound, and through the installation of water recycling systems.
  • We conserve 466,000 kWh a year through our ongoing projects in converting commercial facility lighting into to LED lighting systems
  • San Diego’s processing facility was completely built from the ground up with the environment in mind. Emerald San Diego won the Savings by Design award and recognition from the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and San Diego Gas & Electric as well as the local water authority for conserving approximately 160,000,000 gallons of water annually and nearly 200,000 therms of natural gas saved annually through the UltraPure system, as part of the San Diego facility environmental savings design.
  • In 2020, the Commerce facility was recognized by the Los Angeles County Sanitation District for converting waste into resources by reducing their amount of wastewater.
  • Turlock received the Wastewater Award and was named Facility of The Year in Northern California through the California Water Environmental Association.
