Environmental, Social, Governance

At Cagney Contract Cleaning we understand the increasing importance of reshaping businesses to create value sustainably, through environmental, social, and economic methods.

In 2023, we have made the first steps to achieve this by hiring our first in houseSustainability and Innovations Lead. They will lead our “Rethink” project, and strive to improve Cagney’s, through sustainable methods.

Although we have already made strides in these areas, going forward, we will develop a concrete strategy, and set realistic targets, to ensure that we are doing our best for our people, and our planet.
