Green cleaning policies and practices help to reduce waste and minimize the use of harmful contaminants that can impact indoor environment quality, occupant health and the natural environment.
The ‘Green Cleaning’ credit rewards the adoption and integration of green cleaning principles and processes into cleaning contracts and sustainability policies, and the ongoing commitment to such policies and practices throughout the certification period.
Green cleaning policies must outline the cleaning and monitoring procedures, materials and tasks that are undertaken, that are within the building owner’s control. These policies can be implemented at an organisational level, provided that it can be demonstrated that the same policies are in operation at an individual asset level.
