Clean Focus Strategic Environmental Plan

We at Clean Focus are more than a fancy ‘green page’ on our website. We stand by our environmental plan and are sharing it with your, so you can keep us honest and work with us to improve the green star rating of your building.

Energy: Reduce consumption and energy demand

Our Initiative: Embrace renewable energy

  • Train and encourage staff to turn off the lights before leaving

 

Transport: Encourage alternatives to motor vehicle usage

  • Integration of using microfibre technology with less reliance on water (water cleaning systems where applicable)
  • Report leaky taps and drips to management
  • Training and implementation of measuring apparatus for staff
  • Use half loads when cleaning cloths and hang to dry.

 

Materials: Reduce resource consumption

Our Initiative : Reuse and recycle

The How:

  • Partner with suppliers who have green / eco initiatives products and practices

 

Health : Provide a healthy environment for workers, staff and clients

Our Initiative: Use health conscious equipment and chemicals

The How:

  • Use the Superpro Micron 700 backpack, which boasts a HEPA rated high-grade filter which traps 99.99% of fine dust particles. Perfect choice for health focused environments where clean air quality is essential. The sealable, disposable dust bag guarantees dust and bacteria are disposed of with minimal exposure to the user. The Superpro Wispa 700 is an ultra-lightweight, quiet machine, designed to give users the option of reducing noise and energy use. This great feature prevents disturbing others whilst vacuuming and enables economical use of power.
  • Use GECA-approved products (Clean Plus Chemicals)

 

Staff : Provide a safe, happy and engaging workplace for Clean Focus staff

Our initiative: Subsidise staff for first-aid courses, white card certification and gym membership

The How:

  • Safe equipment: backpack vacuum cleaners are ergonomic and better for the back in comparison to upright and canister vacuums. Test and tag cords yearly for electrical safety
  • Non-ammoniated window cleaner
  • Removal of aerosol use
  • Encourage work-life balance
  • Celebrate and reward good work and commitment to green initiatives
