Newydd Catering & Cleaning is a brand new Local Authority Trading Company created to deliver high quality, financially viable, sustainable, customer-focused catering and cleaning services.

Sustainability is really important to us. We primarily work in schools, and they are really committed to having a positive environmental impact – which means there is pressure on us to be seen as a sustainable organisation.  Students these days are really aware of climate change and the environment, and it’s important to us that we set an example to them, from everything to the cleaning products we use to the way in which we serve the food/drink to the students.

We implemented Green Care Professional products as part of wider campaign to promote more sustainable practice. The presentation of the products and their sustainable backstory really influenced us, and made us think about our responsibility to the environment and the impact we could have by promoting a better environmental message. Our decision was also influenced from a health and safety perspective. The fact that the chemicals were non-toxic really impressed us, as it meant we could protect our staff from toxic chemical hazards and really reduce risk at work. 

The environmental impact of cleaning products may not be something our clients consider, but when they see the Green Care Performance Certificate and the savings data it really helps them to consider the bigger picture, and see the impact we are having.

It’s all about making the little, everyday things we do as sustainable as possible, and together these add up and contribute to make the bigger difference.

Trattino is much more than a simple restaurant. It is a place where you can eat, drink, shop, share and discover. Entirely dedicated to sustainable food, the Lyon-based establishment gathers under the same roof a restaurant, a bar-cafe and a grocery store. All year long the place is animated by a cultural and event program. Guillaume Chambon, Head of Sourcing at Trattino explains:

Guillaume Chambon
Head of Sourcing at Trattino

“We dedicated this place to ecological and responsible food because we are convinced that the food of today and tomorrow must be organic. The 3 spaces are certified 100% organic, are from places within 150 km of Lyon, and all the meals are seasonal and home-made.”

Organic, local, fair, and gourmet are the 4 values of Trattino.

Trattino met Green Care Professional at the SIRHA green fair in Lyon, while Trattino was looking for its last suppliers before opening. Using eco-friendly cleaning and hygiene products was obvious from the start. Indeed, according to Guillaume:

“when you prepare organic and local products it doesn’t make sense to use conventional hygiene products.”

Thus, the kitchen of the restaurant is equipped with Kliks (pouch MANUDUSIH evokliks and ENERGY/BRILLANT prokliks) while the Quick & Easy systems complete the other needs in the different areas, such as the sanitary facilities. Discover the video made with the Trattino teams.

French Equestrian Federation

FFE – An exceptional equestrian tourism center

Eco-responsible Commitments

The French Equestrian Federation is a sports association that manages, promotes and develops equestrian disciplines in France. Its unique equestrian park located in the heart of the Sologne on 300 hectares, draws 810,000 visitors every year. In its long-term pursuit of sustainable development, the Federation became a signatory to the Charter of 15 eco-responsible commitments for sports event organizers drafted jointly by the French Ministry of Sports and WWF France.

Welcoming 810,000 people while meeting sustainable commitments is a real challenge!

The park is the site of the federation’s administrative offices, the biggest equestrian competitions, seminars, team-building exercises and large annual gatherings of other associations. During the school holidays, the park also serves as a playground and learning center for riders in training courses.

To accommodate the many visitors, the park operates three restaurants, a 3-star hotel with 35 rooms, dormitories with 200 beds, the 5,000 square meter administrative building, 15 meeting rooms, and three sanitary blocks (60 showers/100 WCs).

Hygiene is therefore an important issue. The Federation quickly chose Green Care Professional to supply environmentally friendly cleaners for use in the park’s buildings.

The kitchen as an example

Frédéric Maubouet, FFE Hotel & Catering Manager at the Parc Equestre, tells us “Ordinarily, the main kitchen at the Parc Federal, with a surface area of five hundred square meters, provides about a hundred meals a day. But during major events, the restaurant can provide up to 600 covers per service.”

An extensive renovation of the kitchens included the installation of larger pieces of state-of-the-art equipment. The goals were to improve the quality of receptions at major events, better exploit the versatility of the location and increase safety and convenience for the kitchen teams. For those purposes, the Federation selected concentrated detergents in eco-packs and built a specific hygiene room, where ecological detergent solutions are prepared for dishwashers and disinfection and automatically dispatched to the machines and kitchen areas.

“A single employee has been trained to manage the centralized dilution station and to handle the products. He is in charge of monitoring consumption, product restocking and waste management.”

Benefits realized include safety, efficiency, cleaning quality, storage savings and reduction of plastic waste.

Now we can feel a bit like a climate hero and are very aware of the savings potential of the recyclable cleaning products. We were especially convinced by the eco-certifications and the aspect that the products are mostly vegan, ecological and sustainable. In addition, the products perform very well. So nothing stood in the way of a quick changeover.”

“Sustainable and environmentally friendly work is firmly anchored in the principles of our company policy. For our company, we try to use resource and environmentally friendly materials in our work processes wherever possible. As a future-oriented family business, we are aware of our responsibility to society as a whole. For several years we have implemented an environmental management system according to DIN EN 14001 and assess our service offering for its impact on the environment as well as energy and resource consumption.

The use of Green Care Professional products is crucial for us, as it provides excellent support in achieving the goals we have set ourselves. Not only are the cleaning materials less harmful to the environment, but the production processes are also environmentally friendly. The packaging material consists of up to 100% recycled material and is returned to the production cycle.

The calculator is used in customer communication and helps us a lot to win tenders that take environmental aspects into account. We ourselves were amazed at the potential savings in CO2 and raw materials compared to conventional production methods.

We are convinced that everyone should make their contribution.”

Healthy ambient air ensured with inspected and certified substances.

Cleaning products tested by Sentinel Haus Institut

Peter Bachmann
Founder and director of
Sentinel Haus Institut

“Tested, low-emission cleaning products are crucial for healthy building occupation. We recommend products from Green Care Professional. I’m very pleased with Tana’s consistent sustainability orientation. That helps our innovtive customers in the hotel and office segments.”

Green Care Professional passes scientific tests with flying colors

Buildings are practically airtight these days. In enclosed spaces, the increased concentration of substances in the ambient air has a negative effect on well-being and health. Along with emissions from construction products, cleaning agents can contribute to the problem.

That can lead to irritation of the airways, eyes and mucous membranes, to headaches and general discomfort. Cleaning personnel and building users, such as schoolchildren and teachers in a school can be affected.

For these reasons, Tana-Chemie had many of its products tested by independent experts at Sentinel Haus Institut. As part of the project MY FUTURE OFFICE, the Green Care Professional brands for daily maintenance cleaning and intensive cleaning were examined.

Products are tested under strict conditions in accordance with scientific standards in a unique European reference room. This approach allows particularly practical examinations and solid conclusions about everyday situations to be made.

Green Care Professional products for maintenance cleaning make sure rooms are healthy spaces for living, working and learning. They contain ingredients that do not pollute the ambient air.

“Green Care Professional deliberately does without problematic substances. In the intensive cleaning of floor coverings, for example. Compared to many other products on the market, the products we recommend have a significantly lower impact on ambient air and evaporate faster”, said Peter Bachmann.

You can find cleaning products from Green Care Professional that have been tested for hazardous substances in the database in the Sentinel portal.

“Sustainability is an integral part of our corporate policy.

For the benefit of our customers we use environmentally friendly cleaning chemicals and devices and continuously improve our ecological footprint.

The use of Green Care Professional products generates very good feedback from our cleaning personnel and our customers. The Performance Calculator helps us to quantify our resource-conserving potential in crude oil, CO2 emissions and plastic. With those concrete figures, we can clearly show public and private contracting parties how important sustainability is to us.

We are convinced that every person and every company should try to improve the environment by taking such steps.”
