Organizations today have been increasingly getting involved in the "Green" movement. We all have pretty much understood that being environmentally conscious was good for our planet since we have been young. However, there seems to be a variety of reasons for this paradigm shift in our culture today.
- Poor indoor air quality, toxic agents in cleaning chemicals and cleaning practices have been known to have a negative effect on humans.
- Without "Green" programs humans can be exposed to carcinogenic materials and reproductive and nervous system toxins.
- Implementing "Employee Wellness Programs" and "Hand Hygiene Policies" have become more crucial to keeping a healthy environment.
- Organizations have learned that they can enhance cost control measures by implementing programs for source reduction, energy effectiveness, water conservation, workplace safety programs and employee wellness programs.
- By introducing these programs employees have less exposure to waste, better productivity and lower health care costs.
- Public and private trends have heightened the "Green Movement" further pushing its popularity and implementation.
- There have also been the emergences of standards such as "Green Seal®", the EPA's "Design for the Environment" DFE®, Healthy Schools Campaign®, CRI (Carpet and Rug Institute), & the Blue green Alliance.
- Suppliers today are being ranked, selected, and graded based on their ability to integrate business practices that meet economic, social, and environmental goals.
- With the abundance of information available on "Green" products and systems and so many different organizations selling "Green", trying to select the right products can be confusing and overwhelming.
