Cleaning Industry Climate Initiative certification to improve sustainable Operations

Companies that promote green cleaning have already taken the first step on the road to sustainability, and reducing emissions is the next big step.

Cleaning Industry Climate Initiative will create awareness and help companies, especially janitorial product distributors and facility service providers to voluntarily begin measuring, reducing, and offsetting their emissions.

The Cleaning Industry Climate Initiative has been specifically designed for the industrial & institutional cleaning industry and makes it easy to take immediate positive action to reduce their impacts on the environment caused by their energy use and transportation.

Registration in the initiative costs $200, for which companies will receive a carbon footprint assessment and information on how to offset anywhere from 50 percent to 300 percent of those emissions.

What You Get for Cleaning Industry Climate Initiative Registration

  • Calculation of your emission foot print
  • Information on the cost of offsetting your emissions by: 50%, 100%, 200% & 300%
  • A listing on the CICI web site as a registered program participant
  • A certificate recognizing your company as a registered program participant
  • Offset Your Emissions Choose your level and pay for the chosen level emissions offsets

This initiative is provided by the Leonardo Academy, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1997 with a vision of advancing sustainability and putting the competitive market to work on improving the environment. Leonardo Academy is a Think and Do Tank. They develop and distribute strategies, guidance, metrics, standards, education, and information on how to increase sustainability.
