ISS has partnered with Clean Up Australia for its Business Clean Up Day in 2020.
Clean Up Australia Day is the largest community mobilisation event in the Asia Pacific Region. In 2019, the program inspired almost 700,000 Australians to remove rubbish from their natural environment.
Clean Up Australia Day focuses the public’s attention on the impact of specific rubbish items and the need for better resource recovery.
ISS will be a major business supporter for Business Clean Up Day on Tuesday, 25 February, which is held during the week prior to the main community day on Sunday, 1 March.
More than 750 businesses are expected to take part in Business Clean Ups during 2020 and empower their employees to clean up their local communities.
ISS CEO – Australia and New Zealand, Scott Davies, said ISS is proud to partner with Clean Up Australia in a program dedicated to tackling Australia’s waste challenges.
“As one of the country’s largest facility services companies, we help businesses reduce their environmental footprint every day through our sustainable cleaning and waste management practices. This partnership aligns strongly with our CSR values that provide practical solutions to help us all live more sustainably.”
Davies said ISS plans to harness its sizable national workforce to help make a difference.
“Across Australia, we have around 14,000 employees who are geographically dispersed over a large number of sites in the aviation, health, resources, education and business and industry sectors.
“We aim to leverage the power of our employee numbers and partner with our customers to create multiple Clean-Up events across the country, to really make a difference to our local communities.”
CUA CEO Terrie-Ann Johnson said the organisation is delighted to welcome ISS Facility Services to the team.
“With Australians creating the equivalent of 10kg of household rubbish per person per week, there has never been a better time for businesses to Step Up to Clean Up and support the communities near where they work. We spend more time at work than we do at play – and Business Clean Up action is all about getting together with your colleagues to make a real difference right on your doorstep,” Johnson said.
Operating worldwide, ISS Group is one of the world’s largest facility services companies.
Across Australia ISS provide cleaning, catering, property, aviation security and support services for hundreds of customers.
