Standards and Compliances

Environmental Choice

Environmental Choice is NZ’s official eco-labelling programme. It examines the environmental and sustainability credentials of products and services and accredits them as meeting their prescribed standards.

CrestClean is one of only two commercial cleaning companies to have Environmental Choice accreditation, and the only one with a national service.

The Environmental Choice standard for ‘Cleaning Services’ includes the auditing of cleaning procedures, chemical use, staff training, waste management and hazard and spill controls.

Environmental Choice “ticks the box” for sustainable procurement policies and reduces the environmental impact of cleaning services.

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 Green Cleaning techniques

Our personnel receive regular training and skills development from the Master Cleaners Training Institute. Modules cover environmental management and Green Cleaning practices and 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 approved cleaning services improve hygiene, save energy, and create safer, healthier workplaces with reduced environmental impact.
