Ozoniza (www.ozoniza.es), the chosen provider to carry out this sustainable and innovative cleaning solution, is a 100% Spanish capital company and a leading developer of end-to-end cleaning and maintenance solutions for all kinds of spaces: commercial, industrial, offices, restaurants, hospitality, healthcare, etc.
MERLIN Properties and Sacyr Facilities, through this collaboration with Ozoniza, will continue to expand the array of activities and sustainable projects encompassed in their sustainability, CSR, and ESG plan. To do this, we will reduce 100% of packaging, chemicals, and detergents that cleaning staff used up until now to do maintenance work on the tower situated in the financial area of Madrid’s northern district. In turn, Ozoniza will associate its professional project with two companies committed to their corporate missions and visions, encouraging it to continue developing its portfolio of technologically efficient and environmentally respectful solutions.
This first collaboration project between MERLIN Properties, Sacyr Facilities, and Ozoniza will go on throughout the second half of 2021 and entails total reduction of plastics, detergents, bleaches, and chemical products intended for cleaning purposes in the said tower. This is to maximize the care and protection of the staff that carries out that activity by replacing chemicals with ozone water, which causes no skin reaction.
