Regular Cleaning Sustainability and Social Value Showcase
July 4, America Square, London EC3N 2LB
Sustainability is at the heart of what we do as a business. Providing commercial cleaning services for our clients makes up the tangible service lines we offer – Day to day cleaning for offices and mixed use public realm, Specialist deep cleans, Window cleaning and Support Services including washroom services, pest control and waste management.
How we supply these services is just as important to us as the service specification itself.
We wanted to celebrate this ethos with like-minded clients and industry influencers at an inaugural event, showcasing some of the important layers which support the delivery of our commercial cleaning services. These layers are reflected across our sustainable business strategy – known as ‘Better Places’ – and held up by four strategic pillars which cover environmental, social, and community activities and projects. Read more about how we address and report on our strategy here.
Our event on 4 July invited clients, service partners and corporate partners to hear of our latest updates on social value and progress on our sustainability journey. We also took this opportunity to discuss how these initiatives can benefit and support our client’s sustainability ambitions, be they achieving Net Zero or boosting social impact within their communities.
It was our privilege to have two guest speakers for our audience to support and expand on our key projects. Andrew Griffiths, Director of Policy & Partnerships at Planet Mark spoke about the global carbon emission situation and shared data on the make-up of our own emissions at Regular Cleaning. He also explained the relative importance of Net Zero on all our sustainability ambitions and how the progress by one affects all others in the supply chain. Lucy Cowham from St Mungo’s lifted the lid on homelessness in the UK shedding light on its causes and how the charity is there to support those affected with their ultimate purpose being the ending of the problem in the UK.

Following our presentation, we invited guests to a drinks social event where the conversation continued over prosecco and canapes. There was an opportunity for all to chat in depth with our partners Planet Mark, St Mungo’s, Alzheimer’s Society and service partners Mayflower and Wessex.
This will be the first in a regular series of updates involving our clients and partners where we can share progress and achievements as we continue to deliver for both our planet and our people.
