Green pest control: mission sustainable

Rentokil is committed to providing sustainable pest control, which means we’re on a mission to effectively control pests while minimizing our impact on the environment. Using our market-leading expertise, innovations, and solutions, our people are bringing sustainable pest control to businesses across the country and around the globe.

We’re committed to mobilizing our people and collective expertise to:

  • Drive positive change across every aspect of our supply chain and operations – and deliver on our goal of achieving net zero emissions by 2040.
  • Work closely with customers to safeguard their businesses by applying effective, non-toxic treatments and ensuring all our innovations have sustainability in mind.
  • Bring sustainable pest control solutions to more businesses, helping them reduce their own environmental impact and partner with climate charities to really make a difference.
  • Take a holistic approach to pest removal that looks for the source of the problem and provides a solution before anything is used to eliminate the infestation.

Rentokil seeks to support these sustainable initiatives through the following 5 pledges.

1. Embrace more non-toxic solutions

We are finding better ways to prevent, detect and target infestations wherever possible using non-toxic treatments. Committed to reducing the use of harmful chemicals in pest control, we continue to expand our range of non-toxic options like our bird deterrent solutions, new proofing products and digitally connected solutions such as PestConnect, our rodent monitoring/control system.

2. Make a difference with every innovation

We deliver our services and design every new innovation with sustainability firmly in mind. We’re applying our expertise to outsmart pests with more energy-efficient and recyclable solutions that use fewer resources and are less reliant on chemicals.

Sustainably focused research

Our global center for science and innovation is at the forefront of behavioral science and observational research uncovering new, more effective ways to identify and target pests without harming the environment. 100% of the pipeline solutions we are bringing to market will positively impact our environmental performance.

Energy-saving devices

Lumnia is the world’s first range of insect traps to use LEDs to attract and control flying insects hygienically. It has 62% lower carbon emissions than traditional fluorescent bulbs and has delivered electricity savings for our customers equivalent to over 38,700 tons* CO2.

3. Live, breathe and act sustainably

We’re analyzing all aspects of our operations, workplaces and supply chain to build a culture of sustainability throughout the company, ensuring we’re proactively taking measures to reduce our environmental impact.

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. Whether it’s transitioning to electric vehicles across our fleet, switching to green energy tariffs across our properties or choosing to source from sustainable suppliers, we’re taking proactive steps to deliver on our net zero commitments.

Ultra-low-emission vehicles

The company is a member of EV100 – a global initiative bringing together companies committed to accelerating the transition to electric vehicles

Sustainable supply chains

We are working with suppliers to minimize their own climate-related impacts and those of our products. By 2025, we’re targeting 90% of our supply chain spend to be with sustainable suppliers. We are also cutting certain types of paper from our supply chain by digitizing processes.

Using renewable energy

Our target is for 90% of our global properties to use renewable energy by 2030, supporting a more sustainable workplace. Over the last five years, we have consolidated our property portfolio, with property energy efficiency improving by 58%.

4. Reduce, reuse, recycle

Our goal is to measure and reduce the waste we generate as a business to zero landfill and incineration while increasing the use of recycled materials in our products and across our operations. We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of waste and aim for 100% of our waste material to be reused, recycled or repurposed for conversion into energy by 2035. To ensure full accountability, we’ve also put in place plans to better measure our waste across our major markets.

5. Partner to preserve the planet

We build long-term partnerships that support greater biodiversity and benefit the environment for future generations. As a leader in global pest control, we recognize the importance of acting responsibly and using our resources, scale and influence to proactively protect the environment. That’s why we’ve established relationships with environmental charities and communities across the world to support their work in preventing deforestation, promoting biodiversity and fighting the climate crisis.
