Meet the businesses leading the sustainable cleaning revolution

Commercial cleaning has been hugely impacted by Covid-19, with an increase in the use of processes and products that have a detrimental environmental impact by contributing to single use plastic waste, increasing carbon emissions and chemical waste.

But there is a more sustainable way to clean at a commercial scale…

Hive Cleaning, a commercial cleaning company based in London, is one such business that is on a mission to clean sustainably and aims to be the first carbon neutral cleaning company in the industry.

Join us for a new installment of our lunchtime webinar series, hosted by Steve Courtney from Robert Scott. Steve will be joined by Louis Beaumont, managing director at Hive Cleaning and Marc Kemp from cleaning distributor, Futures Supplies.

The panel will discuss the changes faced by cleaning companies, and how innovation and sustainable technology can reduce your carbon footprint and support business development as more companies examine the sustainability of their supply chains.

Date: Thursday 12th August

Time:  12:15pm – 1pm

Are Your Deliveries Carried Out by A Carbon Neutral Certified Company?

As an ethical business, our ethos is to deliver service, quality, value, reliability, with a commitment to environmental sustainability, using the most up to date technology and innovation.

Futures Supplies are committed to integrity and transparency in the way we operate, how we supply goods and services and in our business partnerships.

We believe that whilst it is critical, it is not enough to just reduce carbon emissions through our certified Environmental Management System BS EN ISO 14001:2015 targets. Therefore, we offset our unavoidable emissions through our partnership with The CarbonNeutral® Company in a responsible best practice model.

Unfortunately, we all have to use energy as part of our commercial process and therefore, until technology and innovations can provide more answers to help further reduce or eliminate emissions, ‘offsetting’ is the only way to deal with the problem.

In partnership with The CarbonNeutral® Company, Futures Supplies is delighted to have achieved CarbonNeutral® status since 2006. This accreditation positions us as an industry leader with one of the strongest and most credible approaches to climate change.

As a result of our reduction process coupled with measuring the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and offsetting the unavoidable emissions associated with our business, our carbon footprint is reduced to net zero.

Greenspeed PROBIO Cleaning Products

Greenspeed has developed a range of probiotic cleaning agents, which ensure optimal, sustainable cleaning.

The Probio range has been awarded both the EU Ecolabel, and Cradle to Cradle Gold certification.

How it works

  • When cleaning with Probio, a layer of probiotics (friendly bacteria) is left behind on the surface.
  • These friendly bacteria remove organic contamination, which otherwise gives rise to the formation of odours.
  • The friendly bacteria, produce enzymes, these enzymes break down the microscopic dirt into tiny particles.
  • They are able to absorb the tiny particles and digest them as food, and continue to function for days after cleaning.
  • The results: a microscopic deep clean and long-lasting absorption of odours.

Greenspeed Probio is the first range of probiotic cleaning products worldwide to obtain certificates for both the EU Ecolabel and Cradle to Cradle Gold certification.
