At the recent ISSA Show North America 2021 in Las Vegas, the Green2Sustainable (G2S) Sustainability Recognition Ceremony honoured ISSA member companies who are committed to sustainability.
The ceremony recognizes ISSA members who have proven their commitment to sustainability and are “doing well by doing good,” according to Katrina Saucier, program manager at G2S.
“These organizations set themselves apart by tracking [sustainability] performance, reducing consumption, waste, and reporting on their progress,” added Saucier.
Along with helping these members reduce their environmental footprint and their impact on climate change, participants typically report several cost benefits.
“G2S is all about improving efficiencies,” adds Saucier. “Most sustainably-focused organizations find they use less, waste less, and have a leaner operation. That’s when the cost savings materialize. “
This year, the G2S ceremony recognized companies including ABCO Products, Baker Paper & Supply, Imperial Dade, North American, Nyco, Servicon, Solaris Paper, and WAXIE.
“The jansan industry became a ‘Green’ leader twenty years ago with the adoption of Green Cleaning,” added Steve Ashkin, president of The Ashkin Group and G2S, and a leading advocate for green cleaning and sustainability in the professional cleaning industry, who presented the awards. “The industry realized it was not only a healthier way to clean but good business. A similar thing is happening now with sustainability. Operating in a sustainability-focused manner is smart business.”
