Cleanworks explains how the commercial cleaning industry is becoming more environmentally friendly.
Using eco-friendly cleaning products.
Switching to green energy sources.
The Australian Government has established a target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 43% from its 2005 levels by 2030 – and the cleaning industry is following suit. Some commercial cleaning companies are looking to reduce their carbon footprint by switching their fleets of vehicles to electric cars and vans. This helps to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that are produced when travelling between jobs.
Using energy-efficient equipment.
Using old, outdated electrical equipment can use much more energy than necessary. Many commercial cleaning companies are replacing their older, less energy-efficient equipment with new, energy-efficient models. This helps to reduce the amount of energy used during cleaning operations, which in turn reduces their carbon footprint.
Encouraging waste reduction.
Commercial cleaning companies are also taking steps to encourage waste reduction by promoting recycling and using less packaging. This helps to reduce the amount of waste that is produced during cleans and minimises the impact of the industry on the environment.
Promoting sustainable practices.
Finally, the commercial cleaning industry is promoting sustainable practices among its employees and customers through some simple day-to-day habits. This includes things like turning off lights and equipment when they are not in use, reducing water consumption, and encouraging the use of public transportation or carpooling to reduce carbon emissions.
