Building Services Achieves Second Nationally Recognized Green Cleaning Certificate With Honors

Georgia Institute of Technology has achieved the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard  CIMS-Green Building (GB) certification With Honors, which assures that their green cleaning practices will be utilized, managed and evaluated according to national best practices. 

“We are thrilled to receive the ISSA certification as it is clearly aligned with our existing green cleaning  principles and further strengthens our processes,” says Tommy Little, Associate Director of Building Services, “We value those principles which support human and environmental health outcomes. I’m grateful to my staff for their commitment to achieving this certification.”  

The CIMS-Green Building certification is the second green cleaning certification that Georgia Tech has earned in recent years. The first certification was Green Seal’s GS-42 standard for commercial and institutional cleaning. The ISSA certification further affirms Georgia Tech’s commitment to environmentally friendly cleaning practices throughout its classroom and research buildings.   

Specified measurement tools, a client feedback cycle and a continuous improvement model are all parts of the Georgia Tech program that allow evolving practices to be integrated seamlessly into daily operations.  The CIMS and CIMS-GB certifications require that independent, accredited assessors verify the methods that each firm utilizes to meet quality, service, health, safety and environmental benchmarks.
