Demonstrating actionable change: Nanogreen recognised with sustainability award

Chris Horgan, Director at Nanogreen Sustainable Facilities Management, explains how the company’s environmentally-conscious approach to cleaning has helped it achieve recognition at the Salisbury Business Awards 2024.

At Nanogreen Sustainable Facilities Management we are a business with a strong commitment to leaving a positive impact on the environment, community and our clients.

Our work embodies responsibility, as we maintain high-quality spaces where people live and work and we aim to leave a lasting impact and become a valuable asset by helping communities to thrive.


I’m particularly proud of our latest achievement, as we were awarded the title of ‘Sustainable Business of the Year’ at the esteemed Salisbury Chamber of Commerce Business Awards 2024. This prestigious accolade celebrates Nanogreen’s steadfast commitment to reducing its environmental footprint while fostering a sustainable future.

The Business Excellence Awards 2024 took place at the Stones Hotel, on Friday, March 22 and Nanogreen was delighted to attend and to receive our award on the evening.

Recognition at the Business Excellence Awards is a testament to our unwavering dedication to environmental stewardship and underscores our commitment to being a responsible business in the facilities management sector.

A greener approach to cleaning

In all that we do at Nanogreen, we aim to manage and reduce the negative impacts our business has on the environment. For example, nearly all of our commercial cleaning products are environmentally friendly and biodegradable. We’ve also changed our cleaning product supplier so that we now use enzyme and biological cleaning products which are much friendlier to the environment. We’ve cut back on our single-use plastic waste by more than 40% due to ethical product sourcing such as using sustainable sugar cane plastic.

We’re also working hard to offset the business’s carbon output by planting trees and finding ways to reduce our overall emissions. 

More than just a box-ticking exercise

For some businesses, Corporate Social responsibility (CSR) is simply seen as a ‘tick box’ exercise, but at Nanogreen we believe that shouldn’t be the case. We’re genuinely passionate about CSR and have produced a CSR Impact Report which outlines our changes in 2020, which have actionable and demonstratable changes and results. You can read that report here.

At Nanogreen we are steadfast in our mission to increase its social impact and contribute to both society and the local economy. By prioritising sustainability initiatives and implementing eco-friendly practices, Nanogreen aims to pave the way for a greener, more sustainable future.
