How To Go Green

Helpful programs to make your business green

Switching to green cleaning is an easy way to get your building and business on the path to saving money, being healthier and getting green-certified. There are several programs in place to reward your business and/or make certain it is as green as possible.


The U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. By switching to green cleaning with ServiceMaster SouthWest, you can quickly and easily qualify for LEED® points, up to 40% to be exact.

EPA's Energy Star

The EPA Energy Star® program provides strategies, tools, professional assistance and recognition opportunities to help you meet your goals. Energy Star is currently promoting a nationwide challenge to improve the energy efficiency of facilities by 10 percent or more. It's a change that can result in billions of dollars saved for corporate America, in addition to valuable environmental benefits.
