Commercial cleaning unfortunately traditionally carries with it a high level of chemical use. From an environmental perspective, the reduced impact is really significant.

Sustainable multi-site facilities cleaning

Griffith University are making strides towards their 2020 sustainability goal by implementing eWater Systems across all five campuses.

Facilities services company ISS are on board to discover the benefits of the cleaning alternative.

Griffith University

Getting Started

The eWater Sustainable Hygiene System was installed in 2018 across 5 campuses at Griffith University in Queensland to remove harsh cleaning chemicals.

Managed and operated by global facilities company ISS, eWater is now the primary cleaning and sanitising solution for the team. As a biodegradable and on-site production solution, the solution aligns with Griffith University’s sustainability objectives.

With the installation of eWater Systems across all of its campuses, Griffith University is taking big steps towards their key goal for 2020: to be a sustainable university.

This is certainly no easy feat with 5 campuses, 50,000 students and 4,000 staff, but they’re committed to reducing the use of harmful packaged chemicals associated with traditional cleaning methods.

Minimising Environmental Impact

eWater removes the need to use conventional chemicals which are bad for our health, the environment and our wallets. Containing no harsh or volatile chemicals and bio degradable, the solution is naturally biodegradable to protect our waterways and supports grey water recycling.

The onsite production also fundamentally changes how ISS manage and use cleaning solution. The endless need for consumables has been dramatically reduced and with it plastic waste and other trade waste streams.

Cost Effective

No need to buy more chemicals week after week. eWater is an independent and comprehensive system that can be used indefinitely, with minimal maintenance required.

The greatest benefit aside from knowing that it is good for the environment, is that it is ultra-safe for my team as well as for students and staff.

Griffith University are currently on track to complete a capital payback on the systems in 4 years. This is generated by the direct reduction in chemical costs and the extremely low production cost of eWater solution ($0.03 per litre).

Facilities Cleaning

Safer for Staff & Students

eWater is safe to use with no PPE. It contains no artificial fragrances or scents, no chemical residue and is hypoallergenic.

This means that the ISS team are no longer required to work with nasty chemicals, fumes or harmful products.

A simpler, safer and more straightforward solution that staff have easily adapted to, creating a safer working environment.
