Sustainability is one of the leading issues facing businesses across all sectors, it can be complex navigating the environmental and ethical choices of today and the cleaning sector is no different.
As individuals and a business, Carlisle Support Services and its team members are continually looking at ways to become more sustainable. From electric vehicles to the cleaning products we use, our goal is to select methods that we can continue to use indefinitely, without worrying that we are impacting the environment.
The Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) have formally launched their Roadmap to Sustainability, with their first Webinar entitled ‘Sustainability and the Cleaning Industry’. Carlisle Support Services will proudly be attending.
The Webinar will take place virtually on Wednesday 29th June at 10.30am. Register your interest below.
Carlisle are already dedicated to creating a more sustainable environment. We are proud members of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, where we have access to a wide number of resources which provide innovation, thought leadership, guidance, best practice, and training on all environmental and sustainability matters.

Our various technology solutions, including our Workforce Management System, Work-IT, enables us to remove paper-based reporting by producing electronic forms, reports, and analytical dashboards.
Carlisle’s annual Innovation Lab also allows us to utilise suppliers to source products and equipment which are both economic in application and drawn from sustainable materials and manufacturing processes.

A smart fleet management allows us to reduce our carbon footprint year-on-year by resourcing vehicles with the lowest carbon class, and on many of our contracts we have implemented hybrid and full electric vehicles – making the shift to a cleaner way of travel.

The list goes on and on.
We look forward to joining the upcoming webinar hosted by The Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA), providing further knowledge on how we can all work together to ensure a more sustainable future for the generations to come.
