Tarem Services

How ethical is Tarem Services? 

Serving London for over 20 years, Tarem Services, a valued Social Enterprise Company specialising in cleaning services, is one of The Good Shopping Guide’s top-rated ethical brands and is featured on our list of the Top 200 Ethical Businesses.

As The Good Shopping Guide does not currently rate cleaning companies, this company does not appear on our ratings tables. Nonetheless, Tarem Services was awarded our Ethical Accreditation for its exemplary environmental and ethical initiatives, setting a positive example for other cleaning services.

In which areas does Tarem Services perform well?

Tarem Services performs well across our criteria, particularly for its commitment to Human welfare and worker’s rights. Tarem Services was founded by a group of those who had worked in the cleaning industry for many years and were concerned by the unstable employment, irregular hours and poor wages that many cleaners faced.

What makes Tarem Services so sustainable?

Tarem Services has a wide range of sustainable initiatives that further the brand’s ethical status. Firstly, the brand is a social enterprise.

Like traditional businesses, they [social enterprises] aim to make a profit but it’s what they do with their profits that sets them apart – reinvesting or donating them to create positive social change.” (Check out Social Enterprise UK to find out more!) 

Tarem cleaners are also invited to become shareholders in the business and receive dividends every year. The workers also receive a share of the profit from specific contracts that they are involved in.

Tarem Services is a Living Wage Employer, which means that their staff are paid according to the higher cost of living and receive a wage that meets their everyday needs.

This cleaning social enterprise also carbon offsets its carbon emissions and looks to clean with eco-friendly cleaning products wherever possible.
