Cleankill Pest Control has added to the company’s accolades for its efforts to be more sustainable with a win at the inaugural London Chamber of Commerce and Industry Awards


Cleankill won the Silver in the South Western Railway Sustainability Award category beating companies from a range of sectors based in London.

Organised by the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the awards recognise the talent and dedication found in London’s small
and medium-sized business community. The winners were announced during a gala dinner at the Park Plaza London Riverbank hotel.

Paul Bates, Managing Director of Cleankill Pest Control, said: “To be shortlisted for these prestigious awards was amazing, Then to find we had won Silver was really fantastic. With the focus on London businesses, the competition was very strong but the judges recognised the progress that we are making to be as sustainable as possible and we clearly stood out from the crowd.

“Cleankill strives to differentiate itself from other pest control companies by operating in a way that limits the environmental impact of our services. The programme is also about making a small contribution to global carbon reduction and the issues facing our planet.

“In today’s world, an organisation’s success should not just be reflected in its profit and loss statements. Rather, to get an accurate, well-rounded perspective of their operations and relationships with the environment, community and economy, businesses must fully account for all costs associated with doing business by going beyond compliance.

“At Cleankill, we believe that, while generating profit is vital, it shouldn’t be the primary motive for pursuing environmentally friendly business practices – protecting the planet’s resources and wildlife alongside compassion for those most affected by the climate crisis, should be.”

Cleankill has won several other sustainability awards including the Sustainability Award in the BPCA Member Awards 2023, while Paul was a finalist in the Director of the Year – Social Value and Sustainability Impact IoD London and South Director of the Year Awards in 2020.

On the back of the company’s efforts, Paul Bates has been invited to speak at PestEx 2024 – the pest management show – on March 14th at Excel London. His talk is called ‘How to Navigate a Sustainable Future’.

While writing this, just in is the news that Paul Bates has been named a finalist in the Business Person of the Year category of the Gatwick Diamond Awards 2024, while Cleankill is a finalist in the Award for Customer Delight category.
