June 26, 2012

ATLANTA — The Newell Rubbermaid global headquarters in Atlanta has been designated a BOMA 360 Performance Building by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International, according to a press release.

The BOMA 360 Performance Program validates and recognizes commercial properties that demonstrate best practices in building operations and management, the release stated.

According to the release, Newell Rubbermaid was able to achieve this recognition as a result of utilizing solutions from its Rubbermaid Commercial Products brand for washroom solutions, material handling and recycling products and green cleaning solutions, improving worker well-being, green practices and sustainability.

"It was exciting to take the general practices we already had in place and connect them to the BOMA 360 benchmarks. Solutions from our Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP) brand enabled us to achieve our goal of being recognized for ''outstanding management practices,''" said Calvin Lower, senior manager of property and construction for Newell Rubbermaid.

"RCP plays a significant role in our efficiency as it relates to environmental and sustainability efforts with solutions for our single stream recycling program, as well as automatic water faucets, flush valves and consumables in the restrooms to conserve water and avoid waste. Additionally, we use Rubbermaid Commercial green products and cleaning equipment for our green cleaning program like the HYGEN Clean Water System," Lower added.
