The future of contract cleaning and waste management in 2021
Nina Wyers, Marketing Director at The Floorbrite Group, discusses our industry’s sustainable future.
The contract cleaning and FM market is highly competitive and increasingly focused on green solutions. Therefore new innovation that provides environmentally sustainable solutions, improves speed, efficiency and – most importantly – keeps standards high, is highly prized.
In 2021, we expect to see further innovation and enhancements in several areas, driven not only by client expectations, but also by external technological, social and political factors.
Social purpose beyond box ticking
While there has long been interest in sustainable and ethical cleaning methods and products, 2021 will see expectations step up a notch, with clients expecting to see evidence of social purpose and effectiveness.
Wider societal awareness around the green agenda and public concern for living more sustainably is seeing changes being made within the contract cleaning and FM industry – those businesses that give sustainability a cursory nod may find that minimal efforts are no longer adequate.
Sustainability has moved beyond box ticking and our industry isn’t immune from societal expectations. Clients look for solid statements of intent, keen to demonstrate that commitment to the green agenda extends to their supply chain.
We have focused on making small changes that make a big difference, sourcing ethical products and introducing more environmentally friendly cleaning methods, giving our clients confidence they’re working with a business conscious of its social purpose, with a green agenda commitment equal to their own.
