SUSTAINABILITY: Chair Anthony Ambler’s Message on Sustainable Development

Three pillars of Sustainability – Environmental, Social and Economic – have been part of our philosophy since the early days of the company. Over the years, we have taken many steps in our "sustainable development" journey with our focus remaining on understanding our customer's problems and developing effective cleaning processes and solutions that create value and meet their changing requirements.

Many people have become increasingly concerned about the long term health effects of petro-chemical based products. This shift is in line with the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy which reminds us that: 

"In every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations."

Swish Sustainability

At Swish, we share these concerns and recognize the necessity of offering cleaning products which are less harmful to human health and the environment. We offer a wide range of cleaning chemicals, hand hygiene, towel and tissue products as well as can liners that are EcoLogo or Green Seal certified.

Central to our sustainable development efforts is creating cleaning solutions for improved human health and we are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and services by integrating sustainable practices into our own operations.

This means that we are:

  • Continuously developing and sourcing products to meet customer needs, including a wide variety of environmentally responsible products
  • Providing excellent customer service, including assistance to customers in establishing and maintaining green cleaning programs
  • Implementing measures to reduce energy and materials used and to produce less waste in our operational and distribution processes
  • Providing more learningopportunities for our customers and employees because continuous learning and sharing knowledge is critical to adapting to business needs
  • Supporting health, education and environmental initiatives to improve the communities in which we live and do business

By working to make continuous, sustainable improvements at Swish, we see our mission as helping our customers meet their sustainability goals and contributing to healthy living.

Our objectives meet the sustainable development goals of our customers and their customers by delivering proven innovation solutions that can make their workplace safer and more environmentally responsible.

We work with our employees, business and community partners towards long-term economic, social and environmental well-being through continuous improvement.

At Swish we believe sustainability goes beyond providing green products to our customers. It means developing viable and enduring processes that enhance the long-term well-being of our business, the businesses of our customers, the communities that we serve and the environment. 

We are continually evaluating our products and operations against the “3 Pillars of Sustainability”: Social, Economic and Environmental. Only by considering and balancing all 3 pillars are we able to properly evaluate our business activities, make informed decisions and ensure continued success.
