We assisted Berendsen in developing the company’s new long-term sustainability strategy in close alignment with their strong track-record on social responsibility, corporate strategy and DNA. Through an in-depth analysis of Berendsens business, their value chain, interviews with key employees and customers, benchmarks and best practice etc. we outlined a clear direction for their sustainability efforts towards 2030 all encapsulated by a new purpose “Together around clean conscience”.
Key initiatives include: 100% reuse of textile, 100% green car fleet and best workplace in Denmark
The Sustainable Development Goals are an integral part of the strategy and Berendsen have, as the first company in the world, achieved an SDG certification by Bureau Veritas.
