Springmount   Services   are   committed   to sound  environmental practices.  This is part of our broader commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.  As a provider of professional cleaning and ancillary services, our overall environmental ‘footprint’  is  relatively  small.  Nevertheless, we aim  to minimise  our  use  (and,  where  possible,  maximise  or re-use) of the resources  we utilise to deliver  our  services.

We have full EMS Accreditation to  ISO 14001:2015.

 Regarding procurement, we are committed wherever possible to assessing the environmental, social and economic impacts of our purchasing decisions.

In considering environmental impact, we seek to purchase products and services that, in principle ‘do no harm’:

  • minimise CO2 emissions;
  • maximise sustainability;
  • utilise recycled content in production;
  • are recyclable at life end;
  • minimise the use of water;
  • minimise toxicity; and are sourced from producers and/or suppliers with a proven record of environmental management and product stewardship

We have adopted environmental sustainable cleaning practices through our “Green Cleaning” program.  We are fully conversant in Sustainability and the “NABERS” rating systems for Green buildings. Our approach to the delivery of green cleaning services has been developed through research and experience.

Importantly, our chemical and equipment supplier is equally committed to our principles of environmental management. We are continually striving to reduce our corporate footprint through paper and chemical reduction, recycling and waste management initiatives.
