BLOOMINGTON, IN — Stephen Ashkin, president of The Ashkin Group
and founder of Green Cleaning University
, has just released his top 10 events that have had the greatest impact on green cleaning in 2010, according to a press release
Tenth on the list was the introduction of Integrated Cleaning and Measurement (ICM): This effort to measure cleanliness has the potential to allocate more cleaning resources to those places that can really protect health, the release stated.
Dashboard tools that help measure and report sustainability have garnered considerable interest this year, enough to grab a spot halfway down the list, the release noted.
According to the release, revisions to the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
(LEED) rating system came in second: The LEED rating system has been a driving force in the green cleaning movement and possible revisions to the program, currently under consideration, will help keep it timely and relevant.
