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

Have You Got Confidence In Your Supply Chain?

As Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association Accredited Distributor, Futures Supplies are committed to trading ethically and maintaining standards in the industry and throughout its supply chain.

We are delighted that the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association has launched an Accreditation Scheme for the Manufacturers of Cleaning Chemicals alongside its already recognised Manufacturing Standards Accreditation Schemes for Soft Tissue, Plastic Refuse Sacks and Industrial Cotton Mops and its Distributor Accreditation Scheme.

This means the CHSA has achieved its strategic ambition of accrediting all members. The combination of the Association’s rigorous Code of Practice and its Accreditation Schemes guarantees its members trade ethically and work hard to maintain standards in the industry.

The existing Chemical Manufacturing members of the CHSA have passed the Scheme audit and are now Accredited. The members of the Scheme as it launches are (in alphabetic order): Bio-Productions, Chemex International, Diversey UK, Eastern Valley Chemicals, Easy Cleaning Solutions, Evans Vanodine International, GoJo Industries, Greyland, Holchem Laboratories, Kitchenmaster NI, Mirius, P&G Professional, Prochem Europe, PVA Hygiene, SC Johnson Professional and Selden Research.

All members of the Scheme have signed a commitment to maintain the highest standards and trade ethically. They have successfully passed an audit, conducted by the CHSA’s Independent Inspector, against that commitment. This includes is a determination on the part of Scheme members to support and facilitate the recycling of the plastic containers holding the cleaning chemicals, initially by including the recycling emblem on the packaging.

The Schemes mean buyers of cleaning and hygiene products can be certain they are trading with an ethical company and that ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’. Through its Accreditation Schemes and Code of Practice, the CHSA maintains standards in the industry.
