Green Buildings – Sustainable Development
A 2004 Jones Lang LaSalle report “Commercial Property Going Green” states that property owners who implement Green building, sustainability, and sustainable development strategies will be rewarded with cost reductions including:
• Lower waste disposal and water costs
• Lower environmental and emission costs
• Lower operations and maintenance costs
With proper training and equipment and the correct Green Cleaning procedures to follow, proficient cleaners become a key component of Green building, sustainability and sustainable development practices to the benefit of tenants, owners and the environment.
Crest Commercial Cleaning can provide further information and can develop specifications to assist building owners and occupiers to help meet Green building, sustainability and sustainable development protocols.
