Environment

We are committed to sustainability and our standard procedures include the use of environmentally friendly cleaning products and responsible waste management practices.

Environmentally certified cleaning

Our industry is one that relies heavily on the use of chemicals and consumables, which is why we believe it is so important to resource the best possible environmentally friendly products and practices to ensure that our sites are cleaned to a high standard whilst not compromising on environmental sustainability.

Zippy has maintained ISO14001:2015 (Environmental) accreditation through TQCSI International since 2008. Our certification demonstrates our commitment to providing a healthier, more environmentally friendly cleaning service to our valued clients. As part of our certification all services delivered must adhere to our Environmental policies and procedures, in which cleaning staff are educated right from the beginning of employment through the company induction. Site audits throughout the term of the contract ensure that we remain on track and compliant.

Certified environmental cleaning practices

We are also the only cleaning company in Australia that is GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) accredited. Our GECA accreditation demonstrates that we are continually working towards environmentally sustainable and innovative practices in all facets of the organisation. GECA's scheme enables consumers to choose from products and services and have confidence that they have a lower impact on the environment and human health and address important social considerations. 

As part of our commitment to the environment we feel that it is our duty to source the most innovative cleaning products and systems to ensure that we are industry leaders for sustainable solutions in our field. We are able to implement cleaning systems that use biodegradable cleaning chemicals and that effectively reduce the amount of product used, or better still we are proud to be the first South Australian and Northern Territory cleaning company to offer completely chemical-free cleaning through the Stabilised Aqueous Ozone system that transforms ordinary tap water into nature’s most powerful cleaning agent.

Industries

We cater to a variety of industries across South Australia and the Northern Territory; including schools, hospitals, hotels, and businesses both big and small.
