Benefits of a Sustainable Program

Sustainable programs employ processes that promote health, safety, and social consciousness, while reducing consumption and inefficiency through the use of environmentally friendly janitorial products, equipment, recycling and waste management, and energy monitoring. Studies are convincingly positive: an all-encompassing Sustainability program benefits the health of employees as well as the health of the organization itself.

    Eurest Services measures the benefits of a Sustainability program through the following areas:

  • Health and Safety
  • Community
  • Financial

Health and Safety

Certified green cleaning solutions can improve indoor air quality, providing a healthier work environment for employees, which translates into the following:

  • Lower "sick building symptoms" by 20% to 50%
  • Cold and influenza are reduced by 9% to 20%
  • Allergy and asthma symptoms drop from 8% to 25%
  • Reduce water and ambient air pollution
  • Remove biological and other contaminants from the building's interior
  • Reduce VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content
  • Reduce exposure to toxic chemicals

Community

It is important to remember that the work we do today impacts the well-being of current and future generations. Eurest Services' Sustainability program takes into account in the effect our work has on the future. Our program can help you and your community realize the following benefits:

  • Provide a sense of community among facility occupants
  • Provide recognition of the efforts of the custodial staff as well as other stakeholders
  • Encourage the facility occupants to play a role in the success of the program

Financial

Along with the numerous environmental and community benefits that are achieved by implementing Eurest Services' Sustainability and green practices, you will notice an improved bottom line and reduced operating costs. Going green can save time and money by:

  • Providing a healthier work environment for employees, decreasing employee sick days
  • Cleaning more efficiently increases productivity, which drives down labor costs
  • Discharging up to 70% less water/wastewater while cleaning
  • Chemical consumption reduction decreases supply expenditures
  • Reduce injuries to custodial staff and worker's compensation claims
  • Promote better inventory management of chemicals and equipment, resulting in more efficient and better-planned procurement of goods
  • Reduce building maintenance costs
