Partnership delivers hygiene solution to Glasgow post-COP 26

Reckitt and Dettol Pro Solutions - Dettol’s business-to-business offering - has announced a partnership with Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene Supplies to deliver 600 Dettol hand sanitiser dispensers to businesses in Glasgow and its surrounds post-COP26.

Following its appointment as official hygiene partner for the summit, attended by 25,000 delegates, Dettol Pro Solutions committed to rehoming all hygiene products from the event as a way of giving something back to the city. The partnership will help to provide residents and tourists within Glasgow and its surrounds access to hygiene products, as the brand continues its ambitious UK rollout post-COP 26.

In addition, any excess stock will be offered to local government offices, universities, the Hygiene Bank, which works to reduce hygiene poverty, and to Emmaus, a homeless charity supported by Bunzl. Dettol hand sanitiser formula kills 99.9% of bacteria and enveloped viruses.

Jonathan Weiss, commercial director at Reckitt Global Business Solutions, said: “Our commitment to the city of Glasgow and sustainability goes far beyond one event. After having helped with hygienic measures for more than 25,000 world leaders and climate change representatives, we are delighted to now be able to leave a legacy of hygiene and cleaning protocols for residents, visitors, local charities, and local businesses through our donation of these products. Dettol is a trusted brand that develops science-led, efficacious hygiene products, and so we hope this initiative will help restore confidence for consumers as they begin to fully re-engage with physical spaces in Glasgow and the surrounding areas.”

David Cousins, managing director at Bunzl Cleaning and Hygiene Supplies, added: “It’s been a privilege to collaborate with a globally recognised brand on this project, which felt like a natural partnership for both parties. Responding to the climate crisis is a collective responsibility, and we’re proud to play a part in helping create and protect a circular economy for Glasgow and its surrounding areas.”
