In any cleaning operation the main environmental impact is caused by the cleaning chemicals that are deployed. Like all responsible service providers, Facilicom works hard at reducing both the volume of chemicals used and the harmful ingredients that comprise their content. In addition - and often an unseen consequence of a cleaning operation - is the damage caused to the environment through carbon emissions generated through our cleaning activities.
Calculating the carbon impact
The system - which operates as an integral part of our bespoke
cleaning model - calculates the precise carbon impact of every
aspect of our operation. By understanding and measuring this, we
are able to offset the environmental impact and return the whole
cleaning process on your site to a carbon neutral position. Of
course, this is relatively easy but what happens next is where the
skill lies. Each year we create improvements in our working
best-practice that will minimise, and in some cases remove
altogether, the carbon emissions we cause. Over time, this will
bring our service to a more naturally neutral level.
Unique environmental system in cleaning industry
This system has been trialled extensively since 2010 and the Company has committed to challenging conversion targets for 2014 and beyond. This is our creation, it is unique and it has been heralded as one of the very few positive environmental initiatives to be brought into the cleaning industry.
