Since 1994, Julius Rutherfoord & Co has built a reputation as London’s most professional and meticulous secure commercial cleaning® company. A major part of that is down to our strong commitment to protecting and having a positive impact on the environment. We believe maintaining a sustainable, healthy environment is essential to keeping people and places safe and secure.

This short video created in collaboration with The Planet Mark outlines our commitments to The Decade of Change.

Environmentally Friendly Cleaning

Environmentally Friendly Cleaning

JR&Co is committed to working in an environmentally friendly way, from the way we clean to the materials that we use. Whether it’s the latest pulse mopping systems that reduce water usage and waste, the range of cleaning materials we use on-sites that are non-chemical cleaning agents in pre-dosed dispensers or our award winning contract management app which reduces paper consumption.

We only work with trusted and experienced suppliers with the same ethos and credentials and our waste management partners help our clients reduce their carbon footprint and achieve their environmental goals by:

  • Increasing recycling rates through training and education for staff. This includes service start-up literature, communications, presentations, and workshops.
  • Encouraging zero to landfill and carbon neutral campaigns supported by monthly recycling and contamination reporting detailing volumes collected, percentage recycled, and CO2 saved to track your progress.
