ISSA releases GB criteria for CIMS and certification program

November 4, 2009

ISSA released the new Green Building (GB) module of its Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and certification program at ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America 2009 in Chicago.

“The addition of the Green Building criteria and designation is the natural next step for the CIMS program,” said ISSA Director of Facility Service Programs Dan Wagner. “Adding a green component to the Standard’s traditional five sections of operations best practices completes the overall management puzzle and offers cleaning organizations a valuable designation that demonstrates their capability to assist their customers in achieving LEED certification.”
