CINCINNATI — Jani-King of Cincinnati is a finalist for the coveted 2012 Green Business Award, according to a press release.

The annual award is presented by the Cincinnati Business Journal and the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and Jani-King of Cincinnati''s nomination stems from its implementation of the Jani-King GREEN 2011 Cleaning Schedule, the release stated.

According to the release, Jani-King of Cincinnati''s GREEN 2011 Cleaning Schedule is based on the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, and is one of the most comprehensive solutions on the market that allows businesses to selectively choose from a menu of Green Clean offerings to meet their specific goals.

"Going green is easy if you''re a Fortune 500 company because you have the resources and money … For small and medium-sized businesses, it is hard to go green because they lack those resources," said Jani-King of Cincinnati Owner Blake Seylhouwer.

"We wanted to put together a green cleaning schedule for small and medium-sized business to follow so they can become green as well. The customized green cleaning schedule makes financial sense and takes out the fear of the "expensive green transition," Seylhouwer added.
