We are completely committed to providing a more eco-friendly cleaning service, which is why we’ve gone to great lengths to introduce greener cleaning processes.

4 Steps To Make Your Business Eco-Friendly

As environmental legislation and regulations continue to rise in the UK, it not only makes perfect economical sense to adapt and consider the environmental solutions available to your business, but it’s also your responsibility. Here are 4 ways you can contribute to the global effort to minimise environmental damage whilst future-proofing your business:

1. Choose environmentally-friendly suppliers and contractors where possible

Be it a commercial cleaning company that uses green cleaning products or paperless accountancy services, make sure you check out a company’s environmental credentials before you hire them. Every small step helps to conserve our planet for a brighter future. At ServiceMaster Manchester, we use aim to use natural, non-toxic & environmentally friendly cleaning products where possible, particularly for our school cleaning services, in order to maintain a clean and safe workplace whilst minimising our impact on the environment.

2. Aim to cut waste and dispose of it responsibly

You can do this in a number of ways - for instance, go completely paperless and store documents electronically, buy necessary office items in bulk to reduce packaging, or invest in reusable products, such as reusable batteries or “Bags for Life”. Encourage all employees to get on board to make your business more sustainable and recycle what you can. If you require professional waste management services, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

3. Reduce carbon emissions

If your company has its own fleet of vehicles, consider investing in hybrid cars to reduce environmental impact and encourage employees to use public transport or cycle to work.

4. Save energy

Ensuring lights, computers and other electronic equipment are properly off (not just on standby) when not in use can significantly help to reduce carbon emissions in the workplace. Switch to energy-saving lights bulbs and ensure the office is at a comfortable temperature to reduce energy bills.
