Certification story

DOC Cleaning Limited, a privately owned, family run company, founded in 1972, that provides a range of cleaning and associated services to a wide range of prestigious and blue chip locations throughout London and the South East, has achieved Planet Mark certification. 

DOC is committed to sustaining and protecting the environment and preserving the quality of the world in which we live. To minimise its environmental impact and comply with all legislation, the company has specific policies and procedures in place to achieve accreditation with the Environmental Management System ISO 14001, as well as introducing a range of biodegradable and environmentally friendly products. 

By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the firm will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.

Steve Malkin
CEO
Planet Mark
“I’m delighted to have DOC Cleaning join us at Planet Mark. Having already made changes to its supply chain, the company is ripe for measuring and reducing its carbon footprint. Taking these steps shows enormous ambition to walk the walk on sustainability and we must applaud DOC for its ambition to act in a scientific and progressive way.”

The cleaning industry is ready for a sustainable revolution. By taking close care of its supply chain, and becoming knowledgeable about the impacts of chemicals in cleaning supplies and their correct disposal, the industry and its clients can quickly become much more resilient to the impacts of climate change in the future. 

Future targets

Reduce carbon emissions by at least 2.5% each year

To recertify next year DOC Cleaning must reduce emissions by 2.5%.

Aim to reduce carbon emissions by 5% each year

A 5% year-on-year reduction is the target reduction recommended by Planet Mark.
