Hand of a businessman reach out towards hand of the nature

The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has launched its 2019 Sustainability Report, which details its new strategy of calling on the cleaning products industry to take bolder, collective action to achieve a cleaner world.

ACI’s sustainability strategy aims to help the cleaning increase transparency, reduce emissions, better value nature and make other positive contributions.

“We’re pushing our members to think bigger, be fearless and implement ever-more innovative solutions,” says Melissa Hockstad, ACI president and CEO. “Our new strategy combines our core strength of collaboration with a commitment to doing our part as an industry to address the sustainability challenges facing our globe.”

ACI’s 2019 Sustainability Report details these new goals and how its more than 140 member companies have already started taking action. For instance, ACI members are helping consumers choose products that are best for them by sharing more information about their products and practices through digital means. Members are also shifting to preferred products and ingredients that meet third-party human and environmental safety requirements.

“A meaningful commitment to operating sustainably must reach every corner of a company and every component of the supply chain,” says Sundar Raman, chair of ACI’s board of directors. “As highlighted in this Report, ACI is stepping up on sustainability by uniting the industry around a shared vision that can move us collectively towards a brighter future for all.”

Supporting this new strategy, ACI is also announcing “Our Future Is Clean,” a new campaign that will launch during National Cleaning Week, March 22 to March 28, 2020. The campaign will highlight how the cleaning products supply chain is working toward a clean, sustainable world, promoting health and well-being, and seeking to make a real difference through bold commitments and actions.
