At Opago, we’re passionate about providing the best solutions to clients while also being conscious of our ecological footprint. Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do, and our goal is to be a green company that does everything we can for the environment. Read on to learn more about the changes we’ve made, the initiatives we’ve launched, and the way we work to achieve sustainability.
From switching to sustainable suppliers to using electric vehicles, there’s a lot that we’re doing in our effort to go green. The level of pollution in London is falling, but there’s still work to be done, and that’s why we’re committing to being a sustainable business.
One of our most popular services is replenishing toiletries for city centre properties. This has the potential to create lots of waste, and that’s why we choose first-class products from sustainable sources. Reducing waste and providing a quality product is a fantastic combination, and we’ve found success in offering these products to clients.
According to sources in the Independent, more than 30,000 coffee pods end up in landfill every month. They take more than 500 years to decompose, and this can have a catastrophic impact on the environment. To combat this, we’ve chosen a sustainable provider of compostable coffee pods without compromising on quality. Now, residents that stay in properties looked after by Opago can enjoy first-class coffee and know that they’re making a positive difference to climate change.
Our tech platform is at the heart of everything we do. As well as making it easy for the Opago team, your residents, and the property owner to be in the loop, it also cuts down on potentially pollution-causing activities. As everything is online, paper usage is reduced manifold. Virtual scheduling and reporting means that in-person meetings aren’t required as regularly, and this means emissions caused by commuting aren’t caused.
The accuracy of this platform also means that waste is minimised and replenishment is only actioned at the required time, cleaning is only undertaken when necessary, and visits are optimised to benefit the property owner, resident, and environment.
Where possible, we prefer to use electric vehicles in our day-to-day activities. The environmental impact of using these vehicles is staggering, and our goal is to be 100% electric in the future.
To secure our position as a sustainable business, we’ve forged fantastic partnerships with companies that share our ambition. Between them, these partners help us to reach our goals by providing first-class products that we know are sustainably sourced.
One Water offers still and sparkling water in bottles, cartons, and cans, and everything they do is carbon neutral. They’re an ethical drinks brand, and we’re delighted to partner with them and join in their mission for sustainability.
Home Things is our chosen provider of ecologically sound cleaning products. Founded in Belgium, the company provides household cleaning supplies, laundry liquid, and washing up liquid refills. Their mission is to live clean and we love joining with them and echoing this message.
WWF Coffee’s sustainable coffee pods can be composed easily, they’re compatible with Nespresso machines, and use 100% Arabica beans for outstanding flavour. Lasting for up to 12 months, these pods reduce waste, stop thousands of non-biodegradable pods going to landfill every month, and provide fantastic coffee for residents.
