“Greenwashing” Your Facility: A Sustainable Take on Enhancing Your Workplace

Greenwashing Your Facility

It’s Time to go Green.

From devastating floods to unprecedented wildfires, climate crises are on the rise. Headlines of weather-related woes have encouraged a wellspring of businesses to review their impact on the environment. Going green is a great gesture toward this end, one that both your employees and your bottom line will appreciate.

With an environmentally friendly janitorial services partner at your side, a good “greenwashing” is easier — and more cost-effective — than ever.

What is “Greenwashing?”

“Greenwashing” your workplace implies more than just whitewashing your office with hints of sustainability. It requires a thorough reworking of your business operations, including a commitment to eco-friendly facilities management.

The process begins with an understanding of how “green” differs from “sustainable” — two buzzwords that are often misunderstood.

“Green” vs. “Sustainable.”

To go “green” means your facility will reduce ecologically harmful impacts on its environment and people.

Naturally, this applies to the cleaning protocol for your offices as well. A green commercial cleaning partner, like ESCFederal, will use services, products, and equipment that are both eco-friendly, safe, and effective as well as help you achieve LEED and WELL certifications.

“Sustainable,” in turn, refers to a facility’s overall ability to meet present needs while looking out for the future of the building’s lifecycle. A sustainable janitorial services company will help your facility management program set sustainability goals, reduce its carbon footprint and protect people and environment’s long-term well-being.

The ideal janitorial services partner is conscious of both green and sustainable practices, blending both perspectives to produce impressive and professional cleaning results for your business.

Honoring The Three Ps.

When you give your workplace a deep level “greenwashing,” you are investing in more than an immediate environmental pick-me-up. In fact, eco-friendly facilities management can help your business honor what are referred to as the three Ps: people, planet, and profits.

Much of what’s been discussed easily honors the first two terms here, people and the planet. It’s profit, arguably the least warm and fuzzy of the three, that may not readily be apparent. However, green cleaning services can actually help your bottom line
