as eco-friendly as possible. After all, small steps can work towards making a big difference in the long run.


A great place to start is eliminating the prevalence of single-use plastics within catering facilities. FMs can now communicate and encourage the use of reusable water bottles and coffee cups. This is due to a recent survey signed by 119 experts which concluded that reusable containers do not pose a threat and this now needs to be communicated clearly to encourage reusable items again.


Sustainable water solutions Seeking out sustainable water dispensing systems is important as they offer a more environmentally friendly provision, with mains fed dispensers acting as an excellent alternative to bottled water. Not only do they help reduce carbon footprints by encouraging the use of reusable bottles, but many options do not require any storage space, lowering energy consumption by eliminating the need to refrigerate and transport water. The specialist cooling technology and natural refrigerant found in systems such as BRITA VIVREAU’s, also help to lower power consumption and reduce emissions.

Increased hygiene in communal areas Looking beyond sustainability it is essential FMs come up with innovative ways to increase hygiene measures in communal areas. ‘One way’ systems and signage around social distancing are now no doubt the norm. But we also know the public is concerned about touching surfaces in fear of contamination.


Increasing hand washing facilities in communal areas is important but also minimising touch point areas to avoid surface contact.


For water, reduced-contact water dispensers will minimise contamination sites. The water dispenser nozzle should be clearly marked as a ‘touch-free’ zone to reduce contamination and there should be increased cleaning schedules for the tap, drip tray and housing.


As we finally start to look ahead to a post COVID-19 world, we must not forget the lessons learnt during this period when it comes to hygiene, safety and sustainability. Although the virus may soon be gone, its impact will remain and so too will the expectations of service users, patients and staff in healthcare settings.
