Cleanology Goes From Green to Gold
L
ondon-based cleaning firm
Cleanology’s
environmental
performance has been given the
highest accolade at a ceremony
attended by more than 500
competitors and industry bodies.
Cleanology won the Environmental
Awareness category in the biennial
Kimberly-Clark Professional* Golden
Service Awards, which took place at the
London Hilton on Park Lane.
CEO Dominic Ponniah described the win
as a testament to the hard work of the
whole company, saying: “We are thrilled
to have been recognised in this way. Our
environmental strategy runs across the
entire operation, from head office to
each site that we manage. We scrutinise
every area of the business and make
sure that all staff and suppliers adhere
to our policies. As a family-run SME
business, we never expected to beat
larger players, but it just shows that we
can all make a difference.”
Cleanology is based in London and
services a wide range of customers
including Harrods, Smeg and The Good
Housekeeping Institute. In addition to
ISO:14001 accreditation, the company
operates a 100 per cent hybrid car fleet
and encourages staff to car-share and
take public transport using a company
Oyster card.
The company is committed to helping its
customers meet their environmental
goals, through reductions in energy
usage and waste. It has embraced
chemical-free cleaning, developing
innovative portion-controlled sachets for
solutions which have dramatically cut
product use, from 16,200 litres to just
108 litres per year, a 99.4% reduction.
Switching to ePayslips has reduced
18
paper consumption by 24,000 A4 sheets
each year, with a plan to introduce
eInvoices in 2018 estimated to save
another 8,000 A4 sheets.
The judges commented on Cleanology
“Whilst all the entrants demonstrated
excellent
environmental
qualities,
Cleanology was the one company that
considered a fully rounded and complete
approach
to
environmental
considerations in their submission.
Judging was independently overseen by
the British Institute of Cleaning Science
(BICSc). Stan Atkins, chief executive
officer at the British Institute of Cleaning
Science (BICSc) added: “All finalists
must be applauded for the highest
standard of entries to date. In some
categories judging was very close, and
so for the first time we have also
presented some well-deserved highly
commended awards. What stood out to
the judges this year is that those
companies who are helping to raise
standards in the industry are those that
are most committed to investment and
training.”
Stephen Jones, General Manager (UK
and
Ireland),
Kimberly-Clark
Professional*, said: “All winners should
be acknowledged as the very best in our
industry. This reflects our overall
objectives for the awards and our vision
to create exceptional workplaces
through raising industry standards.”
