Sustainability is an all-encompassing topic and requires intense focus on those areas that matter most. Our Focus Areas and objectives/goals/metrics were crafted after thorough stakeholder and materiality assessments. The Focus Area sections of the report provide more detail on our progress, together with many inspiring stories.
Our vision remains, “We will lead our global industry in sustainable cleaning innovation that empowers our customers to create a cleaner, safer and healthier world.” With our long-term commitment to creating a Sustainable Enterprise, we are moving to address significant environmental and social impacts and issues linked to our strategic activities. Our “blueprints” include three core pillars on which our growth strategies are based:
- Reach new markets and new customers
- Deliver a strong product and technology pipeline
- Don’t lose sight of the discipline we have established around improving margins and controlling expenses
We will continue to pursue these growth strategies in the short to medium term, as we progress long term towards becoming a Sustainable Enterprise. Thank you for your continuing support and confidence in the Tennant Company.

ISO 14001 Accredited
We were delighted to have successfully secured ISO 14001 certification in 2013, as it recognises Tennnant’s strong commitment to working hard to reduce the environmental footprint of our own facilities and operations. This applies to all aspects of the UK Sales & Service organisations.
Certification to this international standard assures our customers that, as their supplier, we have installed an Environmental Management System that is assessed twice annually.
ISO.14001 was first published as a standard in 1996 and specifies the requirements for an organisation's environmental management system. It applies to those environmental aspects over which an organisation has control and where it can be expected to have an influence.
The Tennant UK Sales and Service Organisation has an environmental policy that is available on request. Please use the Northampton contact address to request a copy.
The Tennant UK Sales and Service Organisation have decided not to communicate its environmental aspects to the public. For further information, please use the Northampton contact address.
