Environmental Policy for a Cleaning Business

Cleaning Company Environmental Policy


This Cleaning Company Environmental Policy is your company’s written commitment to both the people within your organisation and to your customers and suppliers that you take environmental matters seriously. It confirms your company's commitment to continuous improvement in managing environmental issues, including the proper management and monitoring of waste, the reduction of pollution and emissions, compliance with environmental legislation and environmental codes of practice.

Some of the many Environmental Regulations include:

  • Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011 
  • The Hazardous Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2005
  • Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations 1991
  • The Environment Act 1990
  • The Control of Pollution (Amendment) Act 1989

The first step towards your commitment is to create an Environmental Policy. This should have specific and achievable goals, and be clearly written for your target audience of your staff, suppliers, customers and, where relevant, the general public.

This Cleaning Company Environmental Policy has been written specifically for those companies who carry out cleaning services. This could be office cleans that consist of vacuum and dusting, through to a builders clean of a new house, where every surface needs to be scrubbed and polished.

Once written it must be signed by the most senior director/partner to demonstrate that it is a company policy and reviewed at regular intervals, normally annually, along with your health and safety policies.
