We are proud to announce that Ecocleen has been recognised by the CSSA Award 2019 for our green performance over the past 12 months. Ecocleen has been shortlisted in the Environmental & Sustainability category following a strategic review, which has resulted in a wide range of achieved, identified, and targeted improvements within the business.
“Being shortlisted for this prestigious award is fantastic recognition of the progress we have made and acknowledges the hard work and dedication of staff across the business,” explains Jean-Henri Beukes, Managing Director of Ecocleen. “As an eco-engaged business with an impressive green heritage, we are passionate about the environment. Therefore, we are acutely aware of our responsibility to operate sustainably and always seeking new ways to reduce waste and minimise our carbon footprint”.
During 2018, Ecocleen explored, implemented, and planned a host of initiatives that have contributed or will contribute to dramatically reducing the environmental impact of the business both centrally and across its franchise network. In particular, the company moved its head office to a sustainable business park; adopted a multi-purpose cleaning product to reduce waste; introduced a green fleet policy; and committed to an internationally-recognised sustainability programme.
The CSSA Awards, in association with the Cleaning Show and supported by C & M Magazine, is a joint initiative to acknowledge and reward excellence and effectiveness across many sectors of the UK Contract Cleaning Industry. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in March that will run alongside the London Cleaning Show.
