Jangro, the UK & Ireland’s largest network of independent janitorial and cleaning distributors, is delighted to be part of the CHSA’s (Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association) new sustainability committee, which was recently formed to focus on how the sector can adopt more environmentally friendly processes and systems.
A roadmap towards sustainability is essential for the long term future of the cleaning and hygiene industry. Together, with representatives from all areas of the CHSA membership, Jangro will work to define the way forward. Ultimately, this will help all businesses to achieve the minimum standards and progress on their journey.
The initiative covers product, packaging, transportation, wellbeing and ethics, as well as a corporate approach to emissions, waste, and water. The intention is to provide CHSA’s wide range of members with practical advice, guidance, and examples of good practice to encourage their businesses and supply chains to have a balanced approach to sustainability as well as supporting continuous, identifiable improvements over the long term.
Joanne Gilliard, CEO at Jangro comments, “At Jangro, we are 100% committed to tackling this issue, because we recognise that the day to day products and processes implemented in the cleaning sector inevitably have an impact on the environment. We are proud to be on the CHSA’s sub‑committee, playing a role in shaping the industry’s future and helping cleaning businesses become cleaner and greener.”
Joining the CHSA’s sustainability committee is just one of the steps Jangro has taken to demonstrate its responsibility to this matter. It offers a catalogue purely dedicated to eco‑friendly supplies and its popular Enviro range of concentrated cleaning and sanitising products has been designed with a sensible, lifecycle approach to the environment in mind. In addition, it works closely with its supply chain to develop innovations and products, which offer an effective and a more sustainable offering, helping its customers to make informed, responsible decisions.
Jangro is ISO 14001 accredited with environment management systems in place for continued improvement within working practices.
