We look for safer, healthier, more sustainable work practices in everything we do. McPherson Window Cleaning is committed to environmentally friendly window cleaning reducing our impact on the environment in which we work and operate. We aim to do this by:
- Reducing carbon emissions by being mindful of energy use during the day-to-day operations of the business
- Using renewable energy wherever possible
- Proactively dealing with waste and recycling where we can
- Minimising water usage as well as other resources.
We’re an industry leader in sustainability. We were one of the first window cleaning services in Melbourne to use purified water systems. These are better for the environment and now commonly used by window cleaners across the state.
To help us hit our renewable energy goals, we installed a solar energy system at our office, which provides us with more energy than we need.
In addition to this, we supply all environmentally sustainable cleaning products and equipment at our client sites and only work with suppliers that match our commitment to environmental protection.
