ESG represents our steadfast dedication to incorporating environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and strong governance into our operations.

By integrating ESG considerations into our decision-making processes, we strive to create a positive impact on the environment, society, and stakeholders.

Total Clean obeys a strict Carbon Zero Policy to reduce and offset the greenhouse gas emissions of businesses, organisations, and individuals. It is a way of taking responsibility for the climate crisis and taking action to reduce our carbon footprint. By committing to a Carbon Zero Policy, Total Clean can make a meaningful contribution to tackling climate change.
The policy involves setting goals for reducing emissions, investing in renewable energy sources, and offsetting any unavoidable emissions through carbon credits or other means. This can be achieved through energy efficiency measures such as switching to renewable energy sources or investing in green technologies such as electric vehicles or solar PV panels. This is Total Cleans' way of demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and therefore we are making an important contribution towards fighting climate change.
At Total Clean reducing our carbon footprint is hugely important. We're reducing our carbon footprint by making improvements in our offices around the UK. We've implemented several initiatives to reduce our energy consumption, including:
- Energy-efficient lighting: We've replaced our traditional light bulbs with energy-efficient LED lighting. This has not only reduced our energy consumption but also improved the lighting quality in our office.
- Smart thermostats: We've installed smart thermostats that adjust the temperature automatically based on occupancy and weather conditions. This has helped us optimise our heating and cooling system and reduce our energy consumption.
- Recycling program: We've implemented a comprehensive recycling program that encourages our employees to recycle paper, plastic, glass, and other materials. By diverting waste from landfills, we're reducing our carbon footprint and conserving natural resources.
- Electric cars: We have transitioned into an electric fleet. One of the main benefits of electric cars is that they produce zero emissions while driving, which helps to reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change.
By implementing these initiatives, we've been able to reduce our carbon footprint and minimise our impact considerably on the environment.
We're committed to continuously improving our sustainability and contributing to a more sustainable future with more innovative implementations to help tackle the climate crisis.
Solar PV Panels
We’ve installed solar PV panels at our operations office. This will allow us to generate our electricity from renewable sources, which helps us to reduce our reliance on grid electricity and lower our carbon footprint. Not only does this help the environment, but it also allows us to become more energy independent. In addition to the environmental and financial benefits of using solar PV panels, we believe that it sets us apart as a company that prioritises sustainability and takes action to reduce our environmental impact. We're proud to be constantly improving our impact which demonstrates our commitment to sustainability through the use of solar PV panels.
By choosing Total Clean, customers can feel confident that they are working with a company that shares their values and takes tangible steps to contribute to a more sustainable future. We believe that sustainability is not just good for the environment, but also good for business, and we're excited to continue finding new ways to reduce our environmental impact and make a positive difference in the world.
Planting a Tree for every contract won
If you choose Total Clean, we will plant a tree. That means for every contract we win, we plant a tree.
By planting a tree for every contract, we're able to contribute to reforestation efforts and combat deforestation, which is a major contributor to climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen, helping to reduce the number of greenhouse gases in the air and improve air quality.
In addition to the environmental benefits of planting trees, we believe that it sets us apart as a company that prioritises sustainability and takes tangible steps to make a positive difference in the world. We're proud to be leaders in our industry and demonstrate our commitment to sustainability through our tree-planting program.

Tree-planting program: We plant a tree for every contract we win, contributing to reforestation efforts and combatting deforestation.
