“Green Cleaning”, this two word phrase is seen more widely today than ever before in the janitorial industry. There is much concern public about how we are treat our environment. At Facilities Management, Operations and Maintenance we understand our responsibility to sustain our environment. We are committed to provide a clean and healthy atmosphere for our students, faculty, staff, and visitors to enjoy.
Although not mandated, we have chosen to implement the following policies to protect our environment and our community:
• Pace University has amended its procurement policy to include:
o Purchase of EPA approved post-consumer recycled content paper products
o Purchase of Green-Seal certified hand-soap
o Purchase of low odor, zero VOC Green Seal certified paints.
o New carpet installation as well as carpet replacement with only Green certified products.
• Pace University has partnered with ABM Industries our cleaning and Maintenance vendor, to include green cleaning equipment and procedures:
o Exclusive use of Green-Seal certified cleaning chemical products.
o Cleaning equipment to meet Compliant Green (CRI approved) standards wherever possible.
o Staffing on the 3rd shift has been eliminated where possible to reduce energy cost and waste.
o Automated indoor chemical control dispenser system.
o Washers and driers at each campus for reuse of microfiber cleaning materials.
