The aim of De Poetsfiets is simple: to clean in a sustainable way. This means zero CO2 emissions and no more getting held up in traffic. They also clean using Greenspeed's eco-friendly products and their employees wear clothes made from organic cotton. Their initiative is fully in line with our way of thinking, so we are delighted to work with them towards a greener future.
Greenspeed supports the foundation Stichting Nelis. Stichting Nelis is an employment project, aimed at the glass-washing and cleaning industry, and was set up for young people who have been unemployed in the short or long-term, and to close the gap as quickly as possible by involving them in the work process again. Stichting Nelis does this by offering shortened learning pathways, by looking for internships and jobs for them, and by intensively coaching participants to prevent failure. By providing cleaning agents and materials for Stichting Nelis, Greenspeed helps makes it possible for unemployed young people to be trained. Ian Smeyers from Stichting Nelis says: "In a fantastic way, Greenspeed gives substance to people, planet and profit. It clearly puts people first, thus proving its sponsorship of the young people from our foundation."
Greenspeed sponsors Green Key Flanders. Green Key is an international eco label for tourism and recreation from Bond Beter Leefmilieu [Better Environment Federation]. The label can be requested by campsites, holiday parks, holiday homes, hotels and guest rooms, among others. To earn this Eco label, the business must operate in a sustainable manner. For example, water, energy and waste must be handled responsibly, taking into account the social conditions of staff and guests, without compromising on comfort. This is fully in line with Greenspeed's vision.
Greenspeed gets behind Natuurhulpcentrum VZW. Natuurhulpcentrum vzw [non-profit organisation "Nature Help Centre"] is the largest and most professional shelter for sick and wounded wild animals in the EU region. Every day, not only do they try to help wild animals, they also try to make people more environmentally aware through education or nature campaigns. Here at Greenspeed, we are also behind this beautiful gesture and care for animals. Our cleaning agents have a minimal impact on humans and animals. In addition, we never test our cleaning agents on animals. Greenspeed supports the shelter with cleaning products because, of course, animals also deserve a clean living environment.
