GJK promotes the use of sustainable chemicals

64

Not only does GJK Facility Services lead the way in offering cleaning and other soft services, but it also recognises that sustainability is essential for the industry it operates within. The organisation implements an Environmental Management System and a Green Procurement Policy which ensures all materials sourced are environmentally friendly, reduce the wastage of water and energy and limit chemicals discharged into the environment.

The organisation strives to use biodegradable, sustainable, and environmentally preferable products as well as implementing strategies that ensure there are no chemical waste, reduced energy consumption and paperless communications to just scan the tip of the iceberg. Green chemicals that the company use include Bio + Green Crystals and Solucare, which are waste free, not harmful to humans or the environment.

GJK head office has converted to 50% renewable energy and created an Energy Action Plan so that it can continue to reduce its emissions. The company has created a guideline to promote the use of Green Equipment itself and for its clients, staff are also encouraged under a “lights off policy,” to turn lights on only in a particular area they are attending to.

This level of service has seen GJK Facility Services recognised as an ABA100 Winner for Sustainability in The Australian Business Awards 2015.
