SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES 

 

"Charles Service Company has a dedicated Green program taking the lead in partnership with clients, contractors, suppliers and employees to minimise negative environmental outcomes" - Green Stamp Auditor/ Coordinator Katerine Morrison.

 

Since establishing Charles Service Company’s Green Cleaning Program in 2007 we have not only achieved our Green Stamp accreditation, we have also achieved significant improvements to environmental outcomes across our business. We have a highly dedicated Green Cleaning program which permeates through all aspects of our business. Working closely with Clients, Suppliers and Employees some initiatives to date have included:


  • Introduction of office Recycling Programs dramatically reducing general waste and reducing waste collection costs


  • Introduction of degradable bin liners

 


  • Introduction of 100% recycled bathroom papers

 


  • Introduction of biodegradable and phosphate free chemicals into various sites through Citrus based chemicals

 

 

 

  • Introduction of chemical container recycling and re-use program with suppliers.

 

 

We are constantly improving our businesses environmental credentials. We can assess what environmental programs would benefit your premises.



COMMUNITY


In efforts to source long term, reliable and dedicated cleaning employees at CSC, our Project Managers have created networks with a number of local organizations (usually volunteer or Government funded) who’s aims are to find stable work for their clients. These organizations include Workability and the Multicultural Services Centre of WA (MCSWA). CSC has worked with MCSWA to find positions and provide job training for a number of their clients. CSC provides a high level of training and support to all employees making this recruitment option an operationally effective policy.

 

SOCIAL 


CSC is a member and supporter of Disability Employment Networks (DEN’s) in WA, such as ‘Workability’, or ‘At Work’. These organizations play an important role in the local community in assisting people with disabilities to find stable, long-term employment. CSC has engaged their services, and has sourced a number of supported-cleaning jobs for their clients.
