Growing A Green Program
Survey Dives Into Green Certifications
Keywords: green, green cleaning, sustainability, certification, sustainable, environmental, survey

There seems to be a bit of confusion surrounding green certifications. To clear things up, Facility Cleaning Decisions surveyed facility cleaning managers on what they expect from third-party certifiers and their certifications.

Questions asked included:

• How important are green certifications for products used within the facility?
• If one product within the cleaning arsenal is green certified, do you consider the entire cleaning program to be "green"?
• What percentage of green certified products should be used before a program is considered "green"?
• How important is green certification for workers in the department?
• How important is it to achieve green certification for the entire facility?
• Is the facility working toward green certification awarded by a third party?
• All third-party green certifications are the same to me.
• Is more information is needed on the differences between third-party product certifiers?
• I would like products to list ingredients on their label.
• We do whatever we can to incorporate green certified products into our cleaning program.
