Sodexo knows that the subject of sustainability is becoming ever more important. Requests for bids from healthcare providers and hospitals want cleaning and care products that are suitable for sustainable procurement and have the relevant certificates as proof.

“The resources that we conserve by using Green Care Professional products can be documented and calculated”, says Martin Roscher, Regional Manager Healthcare Lower Austria and Vienna, at Sodexo. “With the Green Care Performance Calculator, the avoidance of CO2, plastic and crude oil can be verified and transparently identified for our sites.

The high-performance, integrally sustainable products from the Green Care Professional brand are manufactured exclusively in the EMAS-certified factories in Germany and Hallein, Austria, in compliance with the highest quality standards.
Sodexo appreciates the sustainable products and something more. “We have excellent cooperation with Werner & Mertz Professional Vertriebs GmbH and its experts on site”, says Roscher. “They support us in our everyday work, with training, for example. They come to us in the buildings we clean and instruct our employees in the proper handling of the cleaning products. That helps us enormously.”
Sustainability is not a trend, but a necessary step in protecting the environment and contributing to a better future for upcoming generations.
