The role of eco-labels for the industry
The amount of companies that are actively trying to become more eco-friendly is still rising, which is not surprising considering the positive impact it has on the environment and the companies themselves. A good way to recognise a company that is eco-friendly is its eco-label. An ecolabel identifies products or services proven to be environmentally preferable overall.
Eco-friendly products will be put in the spotlight
Ecolabelling has emerged as an essential way for companies to differentiate between the products with the backing of industry experts and those that don’t. The show will be boasting an array of companies and sustainability initiatives, that demonstrate how exhibitors and visitors alike can take their place at the forefront of eco-friendly operations in the professional cleaning and hygiene industry.
Good Health & Well-being
Interclean supports Amref and shares news to inform many countries on new sanitation project and tools to improve the health and well-being of humans. The special Healthcare Cleaning Forum contributes to informing different parties about the importance of cleaning and hygiene and how it helps to prevent diseases and infections.
Clean Water & Sanitation
Interclean has approximately 200 exhibitors who provide sanitation solutions.
Sanitation refers to public health conditions related to clean drinking water and adequate treatment and disposal of human excreta and sewage. Preventing human contact with faeces is part of sanitation, as is handwashing with soap.
Innovation & Infrastructure
The Amsterdam Innovation Award highlights the most innovative solutions around. The knowledge program fuels innovation and the presentations give a great overview of the industry which supports its professionalism and innovation capabilities.
''If we use technology, nature and our resourcefulness in smart ways, then we will create an endless stream of new solutions for the Cleaning and Hygiene industry.''
The role of professional cleaning and hygiene on display at Interclean is a big part of sustainable cities and communities.
One of the criteria that is important to be awarded for the Amsterdam Innovation Award is sustainability. This criterion is not only applicable to the product or service, but it also reflects the production process if it is produced using environmentally friendly materials.
Consumption & Production
RAI catering tries to prevent food waste by re-using the remaining products, doing research to monitor what remains with the lunch items to adjust the production and using food boxes so people can take their left-overs.
If there is food left from an exhibition, it goes to the employee restaurant or RAI donates it to a food aid programme.
Partnerships to achieve the goal
Interclean facilitates meetings between individuals, companies and organisations. As a result, many new business relations lead to better businesses, products, services and solutions.
Interclean is open, approachable and entrepreneurial and always looking for new partnerships.
