Julius Rutherfoord and Co to speak at high-level eco-summit

Chris-ParkesTo help demonstrate the benefits of being eco-friendly, London specialist in cleaning and soft FM services provision, Julius Rutherfoord & Co is speaking at the Sustainable Cleaning Products Summit in Paris (8-9 November).

JR & Co. Operations Director, Chris Parkes will be talking about ‘Sustainability in the professional cleaning sector’, and how this benefits clients, on day two of the conference, 9.45am at the Paris Marriott Champs Elysees Hotel.

Factors that Parkes will cover include the importance of:

  • Meaningful sustainable cleaning solutions, relevant to a client site, environment and culture
  • Innovations that are not only sustainable, but improve the efficiency of the cleaning service too
  • Holding internationally-recognised environmental accreditations including ISO 4001 and Carbon Smart certification, so that clients are secure in the knowledge providers aren’t paying lip service to being environmentally friendly
  • Partnership approach between the service provider and client
  • Transparency in reporting and measurement

Parkes said: “Sustainability and green cleaning are too often used as buzzwords by cleaning and soft FM outsourcing companies. It is crucial that companies which say they are working sustainably can prove that they are doing this in a clear and accurate way. Otherwise it undermines the sustainable agenda that truly green-thinking companies are working so hard to implement.

“We passionately believe in working with our clients to implement green initiatives, including recycling and waste management solutions and introducing the latest innovative biotechnology cleaning methods in their facility. This type of partnership approach can help both parties reach sustainability goals, work in a safer environment, and boosts the reputational status of the facility being serviced as a true champion of best practice.”
