ISSA and Building Futures Group to co-operate in UK22nd of July 2014
In the UK, professional cleaning organisations ISSA and the recently-formed Building Futures Group (BFG) have entered into a co-operative agreement to promote the importance of the industry in the UK. They recently signed a declaration of co-operation and intend to bring together industry leaders to discuss the increasing impact of the sustainability agenda.
"As the trade body for the UK cleaning industry and a member of the ISSA, we are very pleased to formalise our commitment to work with the ISSA, and in doing so enhance our service offering to our cleaning industry members," said Sarah Bentley, ceo of the BFG. "We have identified that greater scrutiny in the issue of sustainability and increased regulation is likely to have a major impact on the cleaning industry in the UK in the near future."
ISSA and BFG will jointly host a round-table summit in the autumn, bringing together representatives of the UK cleaning industry to explore the impact of increasing environmental and sustainability scrutiny within the sector.
"Our two organisations share the same vision and passion for developing skills of cleaning operatives," said Keith Baker, director of EMEA services for ISSA. "Better trained and motivated cleaning operatives ensure that building owners and occupiers will more readily appreciate the value of the cleaning service being provided."
