Principle Cleaning Services (Principle) has worked in partnership with BNP Paribas Real Estate (BNPPRE) from April 2018 to February 2020 prior to handover to JLL.
During our tenure with BNP Paribas we established an award winning waste operation in partnership with BPR. Our approach focuses on occupier engagement to increase recycling levels in line with the Crowns environmental targets for the future.
Principle and its partners’ – BNPPRE and BPR Paper Round (BPR), Principle’s recycling provider, mission was to improve recycling rates across the St James’s portfolio through a unique waste management scheme, which aims to send zero waste to landfill and process waste from a range of different waste streams in as an effective and environmentally-friendly way possible.
This includes removing waste bags from streets to improve the image of the area, reducing vehicle numbers and emissions, consolidation of waste, improving services to customers by offering competitive pricing and free recycling advice, and accurate reporting via a live portal.
Principle and BNPPRE’s aim was to increase the recycling rate across the portfolio. The partners worked effortlessly together to create a waste scheme for all occupiers – achieving the highest level of service for waste collections, whilst encouraging recycling but importantly, providing an agile service for the end users that can flex with demand.
In November 2019, Principle Cleaning Services and BNP Paribas won the Partners in Corporate Award at the 2019 PFM Partnership Awards.
