A sustainable business with a 360-degree perspective
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
These are packaged in recycled and recyclable materials, all safe for people and the environment, and are yet another way to make our cleaning process ever more sustainable without compromising the high quality standards expected in those facilities where Markas is responsible for providing services.
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
That's why, in 2017, we set ourselves an important and ambitious goal: 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 2021, three years ahead of schedule, we managed to achieve this ambitious objective.
