Improving sustainability in the cleaning and hygiene industry

With less than 12 years to avert a climate catastrophe, providers in the professional cleaning and hygiene industry have a responsibility to build sustainability into everything they do. Every product, solution and system they develop needs work in a way that minimises the consumption of resources and generates a positive impact on our fragile planet.

Interclean Amsterdam 2022 will bring sustainability to the forefront of this year’s show, demonstrating how the Circular Economy will touch on every area of the professional cleaning and hygiene industry.

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 eco-label 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.

Achieving the goal of sustainable development

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Interclean focusses mainly on the topics where the Cleaning and Hygiene industry can make a difference. Below are the six SDGs Interclean focusses on to improve sustainability in the Cleaning and Hygiene industry.
