Renewable Cleaning And Sustainability
Renewable Cleaning™ is also in keeping with the global movement toward sustainability.
For example, in 1987, a World Commission on Environment and Development report (UN, 1987) entitled, Our Common Future called for the global adoption of [Sustainability] principles and presented the classic and most quoted definition of sustainable development: “...development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Consistent with that definition, Renewable Cleaning is the process of cleaning that reduces the introduction of, and actively removes, inactivates and/or properly disposes of pollutants, including soil and other harmful chemical, biological and particle substances in the air or on surfaces.
Renewable Cleaning connects with renewable energy and the concept of recycle, reuse and renew because it minimizes resource waste and fosters a greener, more sustainable approach.
Renewable Cleaning describes a process, concept or philosophy rather than a technology, brand or product.
Facilities, professional cleaners and end-consumers can embrace the concept of renewable cleaning without necessarily embracing a product, manufacturer or brand.
Sustainability is the continued protection of human health and the environment while fostering economic prosperity and societal well-being.
As the name implies, renewable cleaning focuses on green and sustainable cleaning processes with special emphasis on a “clean for health” philosophy.
