We are therefore committed to promoting the sustainable development of our company, not only from an environmental, but also from an economic and social point of view. We make choices that emphasise long-term development in order to ensure the soundness of our family business and create value for all our stakeholders.
Our green sustainability consists of concrete actions aimed at constantly improving our environmental efficiency: from the use of ecological cleaning products certified to European standards to the campaign to reduce food waste, from the reduction of the environmental impact of our services to the attention to animal welfare in all our supply chains.
Sustainability in numbers
Certified cleaning products
Our Eco Clean service
Through the creation of our Eco Clean service, an environmentally friendly cleaning solution, Markas has been given the EU Ecolabel registration for indoor cleaning services. Our EU Ecolabel certified service can be carried out in commercial buildings (e.g. offices, hotels), institutional buildings (e.g. schools, universities, public administration) and public areas of healthcare institutions and hospitals (low-risk areas such as corridors, waiting rooms and rest rooms).

We care about animal welfare
In 2017 Markas announced a progressive reduction in the number of eggs supplied from battery cages with the aim to switch to 100% cage-free eggs by 2024. In the course of 2020, 65% of all the eggs purchased by Markas were cage-free.
This figure remained more or less the same compared to 2019, due to limited availability of products as a result of the pandemic. However, despite the challenges, we continued working with suppliers that pay particular attention to animal welfare.
