Key Objective: 5.7 Green Cleaning Program

The iCAP 2020, objective 5.7 is: “Establish a green cleaning program that meets LEED v.4 requirements by FY24.” The responsible campus unit for championing this objective is F&S. Progress is tracked in the iCAP Portal project page for Green Cleaning Products and Practices.

Associated Metric

No metric specified for this objective



F&S staff members consistently ensure that campus operations are performed with minimal exposure of F&S personnel and building occupants to hazards that adversely affect human health, air quality, building finishes and systems, and the environment.  One way to reduce such exposure is through procurement and use of green cleaning products and processes. These might include simple steps (e.g., placing floor mats at building entrances to prevent dirt from entering) or more in-depth solutions (e.g., transitioning a portion of cleaning chemicals to third-party green certified products).

As F&S implements university-wide sanitation and hygiene protocols in light of COVID-19, we will ensure that all green cleaning strategies continually meet these rigorous standards to keep our campus operating safely and sustainably.
