The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) has launched Our Future Is Clean – sustainability campaign that calls for a reduction of the cleaning industry’s environmental footprint and is aimed at increasing transparency to help consumers feel confident in the cleaning products they buy.
The campaign is in support of ACI’s new strategy outlined in the 2019 Sustainability Report.
“With our wide membership and their vast consumer base, ACI is ideally positioned to unite members around a shared sustainability vision. Together, we are taking the courageous steps needed to help shape our planet for decades, maybe centuries to come,” said ACI CEO Melissa Hockstad in the press release.
ACI continues to encourage member companies to step up their climate work to reduce emissions and impacts across the supply chain.
In 2018, 54 per cent members published their previous year’s GHG emissions through some form of public report or reporting system. Forty-four percent have set targets to reduce GHG emissions, improve energy efficiency or increase the use of renewable energy, while 18 companies have taken further steps to align commitments within science-based limits or are seeking to power their operations from 100 percent renewable sources.
The sustainability campaign will launch during National Cleaning Week, March 22 through March 28, 2020.
