From the vast Australian 'Outback' to ten diverse cities in Turkey, from the tranquil shores of Tanjung Pasir Beach in Indonesia to the bustling inner harbor canals of Copenhagen, ISS employees, along with their friends, families, and in collaboration with our valued customers, united with millions of volunteers to collectively combat pollution and waste.


The teams included ISS employees from Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Portugal, France, China, Turkey, India, Austria, Indonesia, Lithuania, Germany, Mexico, as well as from ISS’s two Group headquarters in Warsaw, Poland and Copenhagen, Denmark.


This annual initiative supports the global social action programme coordinated by Let’s do it World NGO and is in line with ISS’s commitment to making a difference to the planet through responsible behaviours.
