Tidy Green Clean, the leading environmentally friendly commercial cleaning business that operates on a franchise model with headquarters in Aberdeen, is setting the bar high for its business and customers by achieving Carbon Negative status for a second year; the business has also renewed its Living Wage Accreditation and its Silver Achilles UVDB status, as well as successfully passing its ISO accreditations three-year review.
Tidy Green Clean has established its credentials as a people-focused, environmentally orientated business, and it’s proving appealing to customers, potential franchisees, and employees alike. The business now has seven franchises collectively employing over 350 people, with a wide client list of Scottish professional services, education, hospitality, property, and manufacturing businesses, who have all chosen Tidy Green Clean as their preferred commercial cleaning partner.
Co-Founder & Operations Director David Moncur stated,
“We’re immensely proud of the culture we’re creating. Our people are the most important part of our business and respecting the environment has to be the focus of any company that puts people first. Customers genuinely appreciate our environmental standards, which are now underpinned by a second year of Carbon Negative status, as well as ISO 14001.”
Andrew Alleway, Co-Founder & Managing Director added,
“We create good jobs for people who want to work more than just a few hours a week. That’s why our commitment is to offer Living Wage contracts at every opportunity and provide a 30-hour working week for staff who want it. Customers need friendly, productive cleaners who show up and do a great job. That’s exactly what we deliver and why we go to such lengths to work to ISO 9001 and ISO 18001 standards, with Achilles UVDB Silver supply chain assurance for those businesses who require it.”
The business’s next step is to sign up as a Disability Confident Employer, to make sure that there are genuinely equal opportunities for anyone looking to work for Tidy Green Clean. Technology is also a significant driver for the business, and the team is currently considering how robotics may enhance the service they provide, allowing staff to focus on areas where they can add value. Tidy Green Clean is also rightly proud of its staff retention figures which is impressively high and runs above 92%, with some staff having been with the business since day one in 2016. This year growth has continued apace, with year-on-year turnover doubling, even through the pandemic.
Tidy Green Clean recently sponsored the videography at RunBalmoral and supports WeToo, a local Aberdeen charity that runs a magazine aimed at families with children with additional needs across the North East of Scotland.

The business is focused on understanding its customers and employees, and how to be successful without that being at the expense of other people or the planet; they have achieved the Achilles UVDB Silver accreditation and are also members of the Living Wage Foundation and the BFA.
