A brief description of the time period on which the figures reported above are based :

With COVID-19, USU janitorial purchasing was higher than usual. These numbers include FY 2021 numbers from USU Facilities, Housing, and Taggart Student Center (TSC). The TSC numbers were estimated from their 2022 invoices. The Facilities total includes anything identified by our vendors as cleaning products. This could include items that do not fit the credit criteria. However, all products counted as certified fit the credit criteria to the best of our knowledge, leading to a score that may be lower than the true number.

Percentage of expenditures on cleaning and janitorial products that are third party certified to meet recognized sustainability standards:
