Our cleaning products fulfil the European Charter for Sustainable Cleaning of the A.I.S.E. (International Association for Soaps, Detergents and Maintenance Products).
Companies wishing to join the Charter for Sustainable Cleaning, are assessed by independent auditors on whether they allow for the aspect of “sustainability” when developing and producing their products. This guarantees that their products are therefore made safely while allowing for the environment through more efficient use of chemical substance and natural additives. Effective management allows them to ensure that the products that they make are safe when being used for their actual purpose. It is the intention, in the production and in the consumption, to arrive at more sustainable models.
All companies that commit to the Charter disclose details, in order to be able to measure the global performance of the sector, which makes soaps, washing and cleaning agents and maintenance products, as regards economic, social and environment-related aspects. They also undertake to provide consumers and customers alike with better safety information.
All our cleaning products are biodegradable and highly concentrated. Alco continually strives towards minimising the environmental impact of its products. The superficially active substances in our cleaning products fulfil the criteria for biological degradability laid down in Regulation (EC) no. 648/2004 concerning detergents.
