The Ashkin Group not only wants to make a difference “greening” the cleaning industry, but also to become a model by which other sectors can be motivated and guided. We are in the position to be as Mohandas Gandhi once instructed “…be the change (we) wish to see in the world.”
The cleaning industry is making great strides in improving the health and safety of building occupants, the people who provide these services and the environment.
We recognize our potential impacts on people and the environment and have taken significant steps to reduce and minimize these impacts. We want to help you improve your health and environmental impacts, whether you are a facility manager, school administrator, health care administrator, or a home owner.
