Georgia Tech Achieves CIMS-GB Certification

May 21, 2019 Georgia Tech Achieves CIMS-GB Certification

Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) Building Services  has successfully completed certification to the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB) with honors.

To earn CIMS certification, the Atlanta, GA school underwent a comprehensive assessment by an accredited CIMS assessor. During the assessment, Georgia Tech demonstrated its compliance with the five core principles of the standard: quality systems; service delivery; human resources; health, safety, and environmental stewardship; and management commitment.

Compliance with the CIMS-GB criteria illustrates Georgia Tech’s commitment to delivering green and sustainable cleaning programs. The CIMS-GB designation helps Georgia Tech provide its customers with precisely what they need to secure points under the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance―or LEED EB: O&M―Green Building Rating System, while greening operations overall.

“We are thrilled to receive the ISSA certification as it is clearly aligned with our existing green cleaning principles and further strengthens our processes,” says Tommy Little, Georgia Tech’s associate director of building services, “We value those principles which support human and environmental health outcomes. I’m grateful to my staff for their commitment to achieving this certification.”
