CHSA Tackles Sustainability Challenge With New Webinar Programme

CHSA Tackles Sustainability Challenge With New Webinar Programme
16 October 2023

The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association has announced a new webinar programme to answer questions on the complex challenge of achieving sustainability. 

The cleaning industry’s road to net-zero is a complex one, particularly with the public perception of cleaning and hygiene still front of mind for many in a post-pandemic world. Clients expect high standards of service alongside sustainability credentials such as chemical-free cleaning products, a move away from single-use plastics, and reduced water usage.

Lifecycle assessments are crucial tools, but the inaccessibility of data from up and down the supply chain can make conducting these assessments incredibly difficult, according to The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA). Extended Producer Responsibility represents a significant additional cost, but the government's continually shifting position on this and other regulations makes it difficult to plan ahead. 

In two webinars in November, companies’ questions will be answered by a panel of experts from companies such as Essity, Bunzl, Evans Vanodine and Metsa Group. Part I will relate to the first three of the pillars in the CHSA’s Roadmap to Sustainability: Product, Packaging and Distribution. Part II will relate to the final two pillars: Social Values and Corporate Environmental Impact.

The CHSA is urging interested parties to submit their questions in advance by emailing now.
