EDM Cleaning has a responsibility to care for the environment. We recognise the importance of both long and short term environmental protection and are committed to operate its business responsibly and in compliance with all legal requirements relating to the provision of cleaning and maintenance services.
This policy promotes the approach we take to our professional cleaning services ensuring a healthy working environment is maintained for both our staff, our clients and the public.
As an employer EDM recognise that the nature of our business has a potential to impact negatively on the environment, particularly where we use specialist cleaning materials. Use of such materials is under our direct control, and it is our policy therefore to minimise the use of harmful products and to use environmentally friendly products and procedures wherever possible.
Our environmental policy is an important element to our ethos and we look to fully communicate and co-operate with our clients to ensure that the cleaning services we provide; both new and existing are assessed for their environmental impact.
EDM Cleaning recognise and accept its obligations to ensure that the environment is not adversely affected by our activities. We are committed to removing harm to the environment and are always open and looking for processes or practices that may have a positive impact on the environment.
As far as we are reasonably able to do so we take steps to meet our environmental responsibilities, paying particular attention to:
It is our policy to communicate with all our staff and workers the importance of environmental issues and ways to protect it. We encourage employees to bring any environmental issues to the attention of our Supervisors, Contract Managers and Director.
