To help meet the growing demand for green and the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) and Certification Program includes "Green Building" (GB) criteria and an optional GB designation.
Implemented as the sixth dimension of CIMS, the criteria and designation offer cleaning organizations a certification that is closely tailored to provide their customers with precisely what they need to secure points under the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED EB: O&M) Green Building Rating System, while greening their operations overall.
As such, CIMS-GB certification demonstrates an organization's capability to assist customers in achieving LEED EB: O&M points and offers customers assurance that the organization they select is prepared to partner with them in the LEED process.
