Standards and Compliances

Environmental Choice Licensed Cleaning Services

Environmental Choice is NZ’s official eco-labelling programme, which independently audits products and services to ensure they meet its standards.

The Environmental Choice specification for ‘Cleaning Services’ includes verification of sustainable practices throughout the organisation, plus auditing of cleaning procedures, chemical use, staff training and waste management.

Environmental Choice “ticks the box” for sustainable procurement.

Microfibre Mops and Cloths

CrestClean cleaners use high-tech microfibre mops and cloths, which ‘hook’ dirt and reduce the use of chemicals. Our colour-coding system for cloths and mops minimise the risk of cross-contamination.

Environmental Choice approved chemicals

CrestClean’s specially formulated ‘Environmental Choice Approved’ cleaning products have minimal impact on the environment while effectively protecting the health of your staff and customers

Training in Environmental Management and Green Cleaning

Our personnel are trained in the latest Green Cleaning techniques by Master Cleaners Training Institute, which provides industry-specific training and regular upskilling in Health and Safety and Environmental procedures.

Equipment

The equipment and processes used by our cleaning teams are standardised nationwide. They are durable “best in class” products that perform well and produce great results.

Environmental Management System

SafeClean®, our Health, Safety and Environmental Management System. SafeClean® complies with ASNZ: 4801, ISO: 14001 and ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices.

Contractor Pre-qualification

CrestClean maintains Contractor Pre-qualification status with PREQUAL, an independent auditor of the Health and Safety practices of contractors.

Waste Reduction

We actively encourage all our customers to implement recycling systems and to involve their staff in initiatives to minimise waste.

Day Cleaning Service

By cleaning your premises during daylight hours we can help to save money on energy costs. It’s been estimated that day cleaning can save 5 – 12 percent of energy costs compared to night cleaning. Day cleaning may also helps to keep your kitchens and toilets serviced during the hours most used by staff and customers.

CrestClean’s Environmental Choice licensed cleaning services improve hygiene, save energy, and create safer, healthier workplaces with reduced environmental impact.
