Sustainability: the capacity to edure

That’s a simple definition of a very complex issue. The United Nations defines sustainability as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Some time ago, we determined that a meaningful contribution to that endeavor demanded that we focus on defining realistic and achievable goals — and meet them — while continuing to evaluate and incorporate effective, evolving cleaning technology. At Aslan’s, ‘sustainability’ is more than just a feel-good buzzword. Our efforts to embrace this vital concept are real.Fortunately, excellent and thoroughly informed instruction is available through reputable sources. The U.S. Green Building Council and the Healthy Schools Campaign training programs have helped us expand some of our existing efforts and create new ones that address old issues. Some of the successful strategies we employ include careful training and staff education; the use of ionizing cleaners, microfiber cleaning materials, low moisture cleaning, portion control dispensing systems, high level vacuum filtration systems; and integrating Green Seal Certified cleaning chemicals and equipment in our processes. We design, implement and manage recycling programs as well.Our efforts result in lower emissions; a reduced dependence on water for cleaning and laundry; a significant contribution to healthier environments in the facilities we clean; a reduced reliance on fossil fuels; less overall waste; and reduced volatile organic compounds in our client facilities.

Careful management of our client resources remains a hallmark of our success.
