Cleaning company wins top Environmental Award
Alliance Cleaning Company, has received a top Award - 'The Environmental Business of the Year' - in competition with hundreds of organisations.
"We won against some very large firms because we're the only carbon neutral UK contract cleaning business offering on-site carbon neutrality advice to clients," reveals Chairman Danny Bishop said. "We check processes and equipment, task-by-task, site by site.
"Our Award follows two years of teamwork between our staff and customers working together to reduce their carbon footprints."
Since 2009 Alliance has introduced many environmental initiatives ranging from sustainable resourced paper, buying biodegradable products, electronic invoicing and the use of energy efficient equipment including replacing seven vehicles with hybrid Toyotas.
Key to Alliance's win was achieving its main goal - to greatly reduce the carbon footprint of its own and also clients' cleaning activities. It included the measuring and offsetting of the energy and water consumption of all 'on-site' cleaning activities.
Alliance Cleaning is a £3.5m business specialising in daily cleaning for commercial premises between 100m_ and 10,000m_ in London and the Home Counties. The company is offering a free 'environmental aware' cleaning audit to businesses.
