Cleaning for Health

Sustainability Support Services

Customized provides support to clients who are seeking to reduce their carbon footprint. We deliver our Customized Cleaning for Health Program (GS-42) throughout our portfolio, assuring that equipment, chemicals and processes are as green as possible. Our program has been successfully incorporated into several clients’ LEED certification submissions as well as meeting all requirements for LEED certified buildings at all levels. Recycling support has been as simple as implementing the client’s current program and as involved as designing a system which integrates built in receptacles, composting, electronic waste and/or tracks landfill diversion. We have participated and helped lead client efforts to educate employees on waste reduction as well as other recycling topics. We offer a variety of seminars and talks regarding custodial sustainability and client partnership to achieve stated sustainability goals.
