Hive Cleaning

Hive Cleaning are measuring their carbon footprint with The Planet Mark

Hive Cleaning provide bespoke commercial cleaning services across the capital to a wide range of clients, from small to medium sized companies, managing agents, galleries, right up to large multi nationals. They are based in a small office in Hampstead, N W3 5RN, and currently employ a small team, who are based in the office.

They have 100 part time cleaners who are based on 42 client sites. The company was founded with the value of sustainability in mind: using only eco friendly equipment, sourcing eco friendly cleaning products instead of harsh chemicals, toilet paper made from discarded bamboo, zero to landfill waste management, buying British and if possible, local products.

This is Hive’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting. It first calculated the carbon footprint of its London office operation for the year ending December 2018 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. This year’s footprint includes emissions from electricity, T&D, natural gas, waste, fleet, paper.
