Ethical Conduct and Whistleblower Protection

In its pursuit of high integrity and transparency, Premium Clean has updated its Ethical Conduct and Whistleblower Policy. This revision includes comprehensive procedures for reporting unethical behaviour, with strong protections to ensure whistleblowers can come forward without fear of reprisal.

These updated policies reflect Premium Clean New Zealand’s dedication to setting a standard in the cleaning industry, focusing on environmental sustainability, employee wellbeing, and ethical governance.
