Having a green or a sustainable business has become a necessity to remain competitive and appealing to both consumers and investors. Green cleaning products are healthier solutions to traditional ones, reducing the impact on both the health of your employees and the environment.
In the present world, sustainability refers to a “triple bottom line” of environmental, economic, and social factors that must be considered in business strategy. From maintenance, manufacturing, disposal, packaging, to operation solutions, being sustainable in how you clean your business affects public perception. You can:
Reduce your impact on the environment
Reduce the use of natural resources such as petroleum
Transform your business facilities so they’re healthier and greener
Promote economic, environmental, and social benefits of sustainability
Selecting the Right Products
Analysing the products that your business currently utilises for cleaning is the first step to transferring your practices into environmentally friendly ones. Cleaning products have sustainable or greener alternatives that can help you to completely eliminate the harmful products you may be using.
Invest in a relationship with green product distributors – they’ll have expert knowledge into what cleaning products help to protect the environment while being suitable for your business. You may require cleaning solutions for either multiple or similar tasks, which can translate to saving on costs by reducing the amount of cleaning products.
Complete a thorough analysis of your company; you’ll find that, alongside cost saving, resources and materials in the product chain have reduced waste. This will change how you deliver and manufacture your products.
Making sure there is no waste, you can return the cleaning products that your business no longer requires to the distributor after switching them for greener solutions. You can also use them until they’re empty and then dispose of them properly.
As a step in your company’s overall strategy, providing education and training to your employees is essential for sustainable cleaning practices. These translate to healthier solutions for the environment and for cleaning product users, alongside promoting sustainability within your business.
Training cleaning professionals is still a main factor to consider, as sustainability has the main component of using green cleaning products. Cleaning solutions need to be properly diluted, or the chemical level will be higher than it should be. Alongside being wasteful, this is an unsustainable practice that often negates your company’s sustainability efforts. Improper product dilution can also translate into water being wasted.
Having a Sustainable Cleaning Program
Your sustainable strategy for green cleaning should focus on the main issues within your company, such as:
Sustainability promotion across all business practices alongside cleaning.
Protection of cleaning employees and building users, ensuring their health.
Using green cleaning products from sustainable manufacturers.
Having an ongoing effort for performance and productivity improvement from your cleaning employees.
Becoming sustainable is a journey, one which should end in the use of sustainable or green products that help to protect the environment while ensuring that your costs are reduced. The overall ROI in a long-term plan also translates to how your clients and investors view your company, which can positively affect your business.
