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

The GreenClean program (Guaranteed Clean. Certifiably Clean) was adopted when UGL, now Cushman and Wakefield Services(C & W) became the facilities contractor for Green Mountain College on June 13th 2011. The program, which is GB certified with ISSA CIMS,
includes cleaning procedures for dusting and dust mopping, floor and carpet care, restroom cleaning, and procurement standards for chemicals, equipment, and supplies. It also includes special training and waste stream management.

C & W takes a holistic approach to providing state-of-the-art green services which takes into account the building’s function, activities of the occupants, specific cleaning and sanitation requirements to develop a service plan that minimizes risk to the environment and promotes the health and safety of staff and guests. CW is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and is regularly recognized for innovation and leadership through BOMA.

The GreenClean program is used on all main campus buildings. The Killington Lodge is managed by a different group, so it is not included in this program and the square footage has been factored out in the number reported above.
