Includes spending from ASU's major housekeeping or cleaning departments, including outsourced or contracted service providers. The majority of the spending accounted for in this credit is through Olympus, our contracted cleaning vendor. Olympus did not provide a detailed, line-by-line, breakdown of their spending; instead, information was provided as total spending on products and total spending on certified green products.

Minor contracted work (such as window cleaning) that charged a single cost and did not break out chemical or paper use from labor costs was excluded.
