What is Green Cleaning?
Green
Cleaning is defined as cleaning to protect health without harming the environment.

A Green Cleaning program goes beyond chemical and equipment choices. It includes policies, procedures, training and shared responsibility efforts to minimize the impact of cleaning materials on the health of building occupants while protecting the environment as a whole.

What is Sustainability?
Sustainability is defined as the creation of manufactured products that use processes that are non-polluting, conserve energy and natural resources, are economically sound, and safe for employees, communities and consumers.

What is LEEDS ®?
LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all metrics that matter most; energy savings, water-efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impact.

Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
