CLEAN is delighted to have been shortlisted in the ‘Sustainable Supplier’ category of this year’s Footprint Awards having been named alongside 38 other companies, all of which are dedicated to sustainability and best practice in the hospitality and food service sector.
The Footprint Awards remain the only initiative to honour the achievements of companies in the area of sustainability and responsible business practice in the out of home sector and its supply chain.

At CLEAN, our environmental responsibility and the impact we have on our surroundings is extremely important to us. We have developed – and are continuously improving – an Environmental Management System to ensure that we meet and, where possible, exceed those responsibilities.
Developing an environmental stewardship culture across all our operations is a vital part of our ongoing supply chain strategy. Striving for excellence, we continue to map and measure opportunities to reduce energy consumption across all of our laundries, and have delivered a 39% reduction in our overall carbon footprint as measured by our Climate Change Agreement (CCA) scheme.
