Launch event for Beyond Cleaning - DOC Cleaning's sustainability strategy

28 June 2022

Over 100 staff, customers, suppliers and professional partners gathered at Fora in London’s Spitalfields Market to mark the launch of DOC Cleaning’s long term sustainability strategy – Beyond Cleaning.

The event was organised to showcase DOC’s work on sustainability to date and to outline a variety of initiatives under the headline “Our vision is to empower everyone we connect with to take positive action for the planet and society.”

DOC has been working closely for the last two years with strategic partners JustOne Consultancy and Planet Mark to build a programme to achieve Net Zero and to put in motion a range of social value initiatives.

Lee Andrews, CEO, opened the event by saying, “I’m delighted to be formally announcing our ESG strategy, which is pulling together a lot of different work streams, some of which have actually been going for years, but never brought together under a single banner like this.”

He also thanked his team for their hard work in developing the strategy, and in particular Jeff Silver, DOC’s Head of Sustainability and CSR.

Hannah Dean-Wood, Engagement Manager for Planet Mark introduced DOC’s carbon reduction objectives and Elise Craig, Programme Manager from the Living Wage Foundation spoke about the importance to DOC staff and the many thousands of similar employees of being paid the Real Living Wage, especially in view of the current cost of living crisis.

The event finished with a lively Q&A session hosted by the panel of DOC Directors and professional partners.
