Sustainability Committee

The ISSA Sustainability Committee is a member-led initiative that exists to:

  • Assist our members when responding to sustainability requests from their customers
  • Help our members implement sustainability, efficiency, social equity, and other related business strategies in their own organizations.

The committee includes members from all facets of the cleaning value chain, many of whom also participate in the committee’s five work groups that focus on Education & Training; Reporting Tools; ISSA Show North America; International; and Strategic Planning.

We encourage all active ISSA members to join and participate in the committee, which meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 12 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

If you are interested in joining this important initiative, please complete the call-for-volunteers questionnaire, which is free and will take about five minutes to complete.

ISSA Introduction to Sustainability Course

The ISSA Sustainability Committee is pleased to announce a new virtual education course to introduce ISSA members and the cleaning industry to the concept and practices of sustainability. Created by the industry, for the industry, the course will help manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and facility service providers understand the key terminology, demand drivers, and business case for sustainability in the cleaning industry.
