Championing sustainable workplaces

For more than a century, ISS has been championing sustainable workplaces, nurturing the wellbeing of workers and developing healthier working environments.

We champion sustainable workplaces by employing our ROC principles, and by focusing where we make material difference for our clients.

  • REDUCE waste across all aspects of facilities operations including energy, water, food and materials.

  • OPTMISE usage of all necessary resources including energy, water, food and materials.

  • CHANGE behaviour of all those who utilise or visit workplace facilities to identify, and where appropriate, act upon opportunities to improve sustainability.

But what is it that makes ISS's approach really different?


It's our global team of more than 350,000 Placemakers who are trained to identify, and empowered to act upon opportunities to apply our ROC Principles wherever they see the need, at thousands customer sites, each and every day.


Helping clients make more sustainable food choices

A veteran of the food industry, Linda Cregan, Head of Food Sustainability & Education Catering for ISS UK & Ireland, understands the massive impact that food has on any organisation's carbon footprint.

In this video, Linda explains how we use our ROC Principles to make a material difference in the way we deliver food services, working with clients to help influence behaviour changes among their staff to make choices that are not only better for their health, but better for the planet.

ISS is leading the way with a robust plan to achieve Full-Scope Net Zero by 2040.

As the climate crisis worsens, supporting our planet isn’t just an opportunity, it’s a responsibility. That’s why we’re determined to minimise and reverse our impact on the planet. By prioritising strict standards on carbon emissions, energy consumption, water and food wastage, we don’t just live to our sustainability standards, we can help our clients achieve theirs.


Changing behaviours to build a more sustainable supply chain

A crucial part of our ROC Principles is 'Changing Behaviours', and as Supply Chain Sustainability Manager, Ben Bolt keenly understands the need to change the way we consume to build a more sustainable future.

As part of her role at ISS, Ben helps ensure that the way we procure goods and services reduces our impact on the environment, and further, makes a positive difference for society at large.
