US cleaning industry makes progress, says American Cleaning Institute

The US cleaning products industry continues to make steady progress in its efforts to produce products sustainably, according to the results of the American Cleaning Institute’s 2013 Sustainability Report.
 
Specifically, ACI found an overall decrease by member companies in four environmental metric points:
• energy use,
• greenhouse gas emissions,
• water use and
• solid waste generation.
 
"As an organization representing the cleaning product supply chain, we are proud of our industry’s progress in sustainability and transparency," said Ernie Rosenberg, ACI president and CEO. "We continue to build the pathway for all ACI member companies to showcase sustainability successes and challenges that are integral to doing business in today’s marketplace."
