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.

Already registered for their eco-friendly approach for several years, Onet has recently made the use of eco-labeled and biotechnology-based products a priority axis of its cleaning services.

Back on the deployment of this solution, based on the use of quality professional cleaning products and high environmental performance.


Triokleen: A Durable & Performing Combination

 Our CSR teams deployed Innuscience‘s TrioKleen concept in the 180 Onet Propreté et Services agencies. This concept combines the use of three highly concentrated products to accomplish most cleanliness tasks. The products in this range are efficient, eco-labeled, ultra-concentrated, multitasking and respecting the health and safety of all (no volatile organic compounds, no allergens and non-corrosive).


Controlled Dilution and Simplified Procedures

The dilution system has been specially developed for the needs of Onet Clean and Services: the Dilumob. The Dilumob is a dilution station mobilized at the agency or on the customer’s premises. A true mobile bottling station, it is easy to install on our sites and allows optimal dosing while ensuring cost control. This process required the implementation of new tools for cleaners. It offers fast training, ease of use and a safer environment for workers.


An Integrated Logistics Solution, From the Order to the Use of the Product on Site

The products, whose acquisition is centralized by our subsidiary Prodim, a cleaning equipment distribution, are delivered directly to the agencies in ultra-concentrated format. This process simplifies the management of orders, while reducing the frequency of deliveries and the number of references produced. Once in an agency, the bottles are filled directly on the Dilumob. With each new delivery of the products, the empty bottles are recovered for a new filling, significantly reducing the ecological footprint related to the rejection of plastic.


A Global Business Project

This project mobilized many of the group’s skills to provide our customers with an operational, functional and efficient solution. It is part of Onet’s responsible development policy, which is based on four fundamental themes: environmental protection, social equity, social responsibility and economic performance.


Ecovadis Places Onet in the Top 1% and Awards It Gold Status

This global approach made it possible to raise Onet in the top 1% of the suppliers evaluated by Ecovadis on the theme Environment. Ecovadis is a platform for rating the social and environmental performance of global supply chains. It evaluates corporate social responsibility and has awarded Onet Gold status. For all of its shares, Onet is in the TOP 2% of suppliers evaluated by Ecovadis in all categories.

In the latest issue of the prestigious journal Water Front (SIWI – Stockholm International Water Institute www.siwi.org), there is an article on using biotechnology as an important solution for reducing the use of chemical products (page 13).
The author who wrote the article is Andreas Lindström with co-authors, none other than Joachim Åhlander and Linda Nordin Rosendahl, our colleagues at InnuScience in Sweden.

Since 2009, InnuScience Canada is working with Longueuil Network Transport (RTL: Réseau de Transport de Longueuil ) as an integrator partner, creating and integrating environmentally friendly cleaning solutions. Watch the video, produced in 2011 by the RTL, which shows a good example of partnership InnuScience carries with its clients.
