20,000 kWh of Change: How Advance is Powering a Sustainable Future

Advance Clean

Delivering Sustainable Cleaning Solutions for a Brighter Future

At Advance International Cleaning Systems (NZ) Ltd, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. As a 100% New Zealand company with over 40 years of industry experience, we are committed to developing and delivering world-class cleaning and hygiene solutions that minimise our impact on the environment.

Environmental Responsibility at the Forefront

Advance has taken proactive initiatives to improve the environmental and human health characteristics of our operations. We prioritise achieving high standards through product development, responsible business practices, and thorough personnel training. Our team is held accountable for identifying and addressing any practices or circumstances that could lead to injury or environmental harm.

Advancing Towards a Sustainable Future

Energy efficiency is a fundamental element of our sustainability efforts. We continuously pursue energy efficiency goals using sustainable resources, the improvement of our production procedures, and increased productivity across all company operations.

Our manufacturing site in Otahuhu, Auckland, is equipped with 60 solar panels that generate 20,000 kWh of electricity annually, aiming to meet 100% of the site’s energy needs and reducing our carbon footprint.

Eco-Conscious Product Innovation

Advance is committed to designing and developing products that minimise environmental impact. All our chemicals are registered with New Zealand’s Environmental Protection Authority, and a significant portion of our range is approved by the Ministry of Primary Industries. Furthermore, we have created our own line of world-class sustainable, non-chemical cleaning products under the Advance Nature range, which are certified by Eco Choice Aotearoa (previously known as ECNZ).

Robust Supply Chain Partnerships

To ensure the highest standards of sustainability, we have partnered with leading suppliers around the world that carry products with accreditations from various environmental organisations. These eco-labels include Eco Choice Aotearoa, Forest Stewardship Council, Green Seal, Blue Angel, Nordic Swan and EU Ecolabel.

Driving Positive Change

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond our products and operations. We encourage and require all our employees to adopt a positive attitude and performance towards the environment, as well as the safety of our employees and the community at large. By leading by example and fostering a culture of environmental responsibility, we strive to inspire and empower others to join us in building a more sustainable future for Aotearoa and beyond.
