ESG Strategy

Leading the way in sustainable cleanliness

Through our Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance strategy we’ve set ourselves
measurable targets, so we can reduce our environmental impact and extend the support we offer
the communities that we operate in. This is our recent progress:


To combat our biggest environmental impacts, we invested in hybrid
vehicles, with the aim of halving our vehicular fuel consumption, and
a URECO water management system and now save around 546,000L
of water a year. Our customers were already benefiting from the ecoinnovation,
Tersano, which converts tap water into a powerful chemicalfree

By installing a mains unit at head office, we removed the use of
cleaning chemicals in our premises, too. We funded an Internet café for
Manchester homeless charity, SPIN, and roof repairs for Wythenshawe
Development Trust.


We’ve rolled out our new pH neutral chemical range, Eco, in 40%
recycled plastic containers, which are 100% recyclable. Coming from
a local supplier, it’s also super concentrated to help minimise delivery
frequency, reducing vehicle usage and carbon emissions. We’re also
planning a move to a 100% recycled paper product range from our
current 80/20 mix of recycled and FSC-certified virgin lines.

Our local paper supplier uses locally-sourced and recycled paper waste
and has a fully circular economy.


Next we’re aiming to trial degradable waste sacks and disposable
gloves. Due to the nature of these items, they cannot be reused so we
are sourcing a more environmentally-friendly product. Waste sacks will
be 97% recycled content and suitable for waste to energy disposal.
Failing that, they will biodegrade within 12-18 months.

We have similar plans for disposable gloves. At present there’s nothing
suitable within the industry, however we’re keen to develop this area
and bring into our core lines.


By implementing the above, we should be able to identify a
declining trajectory within our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. This will
be benchmarked throughout 2025 so we can identify what’s been
successful and what needs further amendments. From this, we’ll be
able to calculate our total emissions and their potential for offsetting.

2025 to 2035

As we move forward, we will continue to track progress and should
be on target for our overall Net Zero Emissions by 2035. Although with
constant improvements, adjustments or investments, we could
achieve this within the timescale or at a minimum, a 65% reduction
before 2030.
