Safer Choice is a voluntary EPA program that certifies cleaning and other products made with ingredients that are safer for people, pets, and the planet. EPA developed the Partner of the Year Awards to recognize partners and stakeholders who have furthered the safer chemistry and safer product goals of the Safer Choice program. Recipients have demonstrated active and exemplary participation in the design, manufacture, selection, and use of products with safer chemicals.

“We thank EPA and Safer Choice for recognizing the leadership of our member companies, working in concert with ISSA, in creating a healthier, cleaner planet,” adds ISSA Executive Director John Barrett. “Sustainable cleaning and reducing the environmental footprint of the global cleaning industry continues to be a priority for ISSA and our industry.”
