RECONCILING TECHNICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE

To support its customers in their effort to change in favor of sustainable development, Onet has designed a biotechnological cleaning solution.

Since mid-2017, Onet, a French family-run group of international stature and the French leader in the field of hygiene and cleanliness in the workplace, has gradually replaced its chemical cleaning products with biotechnological cleaning products. The effects are immediate for the customers: a guarantee of efficiency and safety for the users, a biodegradability twice as fast, a decrease of the costs related to the discharges of effluents, a simplification of the orders and deliveries.

˂˂ Aware of the ecological, environmental and social challenges facing businesses, we decided to take an additional step and make a strong commitment, in total coherence with the needs and reality of the field of our customers> ˃ explains Thierry Bloyet, Ile-de-France director of Onet.

For companies that want to preserve the health of cleaning agents and ensure a healthier and more reliable work environment for their employees, this development is a real plus. Based on deep strategic thinking, it reduces the chemical effects of “traditional” cleaning products used for cleaning floors, bathrooms and offices.

˂˂ Make a strong commitment, in total coherence with the needs and reality of the field of our customers >>.

More respectful of the environment and the health of usersThis global cleaning solution consists of a range of biotechnological and Ecolabel certified products, a dilution plant and a logistics supply solution. Derived from biotechnological active ingredients, the products offer an absolute guarantee of efficiency and safety for users. Odourless, VOC free, they contain no irritating, carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic substances. Another innovation adopted by its nine Île-de-France agencies, which are now fully equipped: Dilumob, the mobile dilution plant. Created and patented by Onet, it allows to start from a concentrated biotechnological product to obtain an effective and ready-to-use solution. The use of ultra-concentrated products reduces consumption and limits transportation, the disposal of empty cans and CO² emissions.
