GLRPPR Sector Resource: Green Seal Environmental Standard for Cleaning Services (GS-42)

Title:
Green Seal Environmental Standard for Cleaning Services (GS-42)

Abstract:
This Standard establishes requirements for cleaning service providers, including in-house and external cleaning services, to create a green cleaning program that protects human health and the environment. For the purposes of this Standard, green cleaning encompasses all indoor activities typically required to clean commercial, public, and industrial buildings. Maintenance of exterior areas such as parking lots, grounds, or picnic areas is excluded from the Standard, with the exception of areas directly outside building entryways. This Standard does not cover residential buildings.
