A copy or the green cleaning policy:

A brief description of how green cleaning is incorporated into cleaning contracts:

In all buildings we use a mix of certified green cleaning products and chemical-based products. General daily cleaning (wiping down of tables and desks as well as cleaning floors) is done with green products. Periodic deeper cleaning and cleaning of sensitive spaces may require the use of chemicals not considered to be green, but still considered to be safe.

In addition, LEED buildings and most common areas of residence halls (kitchens and bathrooms) are cleaned using green cleaning practices.


Of the institution's uncertified building space, what percentage of floor area is maintained in accordance with an energy management or benchmarking program? (0-100):
100

A brief description of the energy management or benchmarking program:

Denison's buildings are sub-metered and we use Schneider Electric's Resource Advisor Dashboard to do energy management, analysis and benchmarking for building performance.

Denison also has developed Energy and Occupancy standards for buildings that further help the college manage energy use.


Of the institution's uncertified building space, what percentage of floor area is maintained in accordance with a water management or benchmarking program? (0-100):
100

A brief description of the water management or benchmarking program:

Denison's buildings are metered for water and we use Schneider Electric's Resource Advisor Dashboard to do analysis and benchmarking for building level and campus-wide water use.
