After completing a two-year process, the University of Calgary has earned ISSA’s Cleaning Industry Management Standard Green Building (CIMS-GB) certification for its dedication to green cleaning and high-quality human and environmental health standards. According to REMI Network, the university is just the second post-secondary institution to receive this honor in Canada.

Completing the certification means the facility has also earned the maximum points needed to register for the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program. In fact, CIMS-GB is now included as a direct compliance option in the new version of LEED EB: O&M.

Some key features of the institutions’s green cleaning program include the use of EcoLogo or Green Seal rated cleaning products and ergonomically designed tools for staff to reduce musculoskeletal injuries. The staff also uses a robust color-coding system to eliminate cross-contamination and is provided professional training on the litist cleaning standards and methods.
