PLYMOUTH, MN — There are many reasons why distribution centers, warehouses, manufacturing plants and processing facilities can benefit from a green floor cleaning program, according to a press release.
From a cleaning-only perspective, green cleaning reduces the use of water and chemicals and improves the effectiveness of cleaning programs, the release noted.
It also directly impacts a facility''s sustainability efforts by reducing energy consumption, improving indoor air quality (IAQ) and contributing to certification programs such as Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (LEED-EBOM), the release stated.
Green cleaning can also reduce the cost of operating a facility and even help extend the life of a building, the release added.
According to a recent survey by the Material Handling Industry of America (MHIA), 79 percent of material handling and logistics managers have or are planning to institute sustainability goals for their operations.
