Some Cleaners Claim To Be Green, But Are They ISO 14001 Green?


As part of our focus on environmental sustainability in the workplace, we thought it time to point out that NuServe is a fully ISO 14001 certified company - meaning that we are certified experts in environmental management.

Ok, so international commercial standards may not be the most exciting topic, but we think it’s important.

ISO 14001 helps businesses make their day to day operations more sustainable. Sustainability can ultimately save money, improve brand reputation, engage employees and most importantly, reduce the environmental impact of our business and our customers’ businesses.

One of the main environmental impacts that a cleaning company like ours can have on the environment is through the use of lots of toxic cleaning chemicals. We recognised early on that this was an area that we could improve upon and it became one of the key objectives as part of our accreditation process.

Cleaning products

As well as causing water pollution, many cleaning chemicals also contribute to indoor air pollution. In 2010 we pioneered the adoption of bio-enzymatic cleaning agents, utilising the power of nature to keep our customers’ offices clean.

The added benefit of these eco-friendly cleaning products is that they are safer for users and, in particular, far kinder to sufferers of allergies and asthma. They are also less likely to cause damage to the fabric of the building. Our ‘green’ range of cleaning materials is certified under the EU Ecolabel, Ecologo and Defra Approved buying scheme.

Other environmental considerations taken as part of our accreditation involve responsible procurement through our supply-chain, reducing the emissions of our fleet of vehicles, waste and water management.

Waste Management

Our waste management and recycling services help to maximise recycling rates and further reduce environmental impact.
