Janitorial Express, one of London’s leading Janitorial Supplies Houses and a member of the Jangro Group, the largest independent Janitorial Group in the UK, has achieved Planet Mark certification.
This is Janitorial Express’s third year of business carbon footprint reporting and certification to Planet Mark. It first calculated the carbon footprint of its Islington office operations for the year ending December 2018 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
Janitorial Express’s total carbon footprint for the year ending December 2020 was 40.3 tCO2e, a decrease of 40.1% from the year ending 2019. The relative carbon footprint was 2.32 tCO2e per employee, a decrease of 10.3% compared to the year ending 2019.
Janitorial Express’ footprint reduction saved the same amount of carbon as recycling 8.2 tonnes of waste instead of sending it to landfill.
“I am overawed with these results. The Janitorial Express team has excelled itself. A 40% reduction in carbon emissions from last year is incredible, and a testament to the revitalised, sustainability-driven strategy at the company. It has been a pleasure to work alongside their team to achieve such dramatic change. I congratulate the team wholeheartedly for its passion to drive change.”
“We have recently gone through a total rebranding exercise in order to redefine the values of our business which is pioneering the use of chemical free, affordable, safe, and environmentally beneficial commercial cleaning products. Planet Mark has been instrumental in helping us achieve our carbon reduction goals which is at the very heart of our sustainability drive. As a result of the rebrand we were inspired to put together our Planet Positive Scorecard which can help businesses choose washroom consumables and safe probiotic cleaning detergents to improve workplaces, safeguard health, and protect our planet.”
Janitorial Express pioneers the use of affordable, safe and environmentally beneficial products to improve workplaces, health, and the planet. Through promoting a range of ecologically friendly products to sharing its knowledge and expertise with the industry, and its customers, Janitorial Express is committed to wider-ranging sustainable change.
Businesses in the cleaning industry will benefit from embracing sustainable change. Greening supply chains is on the radar of many businesses and janitorial companies able to demonstrate sustainable credentials will be at a competitive advantage. Ecologically friendly product lines will also have extraneous benefits to human health and waste management efficiency.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, Janitorial Express has committed to make a year-on-year reduction.
