ISSA Honors Safer Choice Partner of the Year Recipients

April 1, 2024

As part of International Cleaning Week (March 24–30), ISSA hosted a luncheon at the association’s Rosemont, Illinois, headquarters during the afternoon of March 27 recognizing recipients of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2023 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award.

Safer Choice is a voluntary EPA program that certifies cleaning and other products made with ingredients that are safer for people, pets, and the planet. EPA developed the Partner of the Year Awards to recognize partners and stakeholders who have furthered the safer chemistry and safer product goals of the Safer Choice program. Recipients have demonstrated active and exemplary participation in the design, manufacture, selection, and use of products with safer chemicals.

“There is no better time to recognize safer and greener cleaning than during International Cleaning Week,” said ISSA Government Affairs Director John Nothdurft. “Thank you to Regional Administrator Debra Shore and EPA Safer Choice for recognizing the advancement these companies and others in the industry are making in creating products that are safer for human health and the environment.”
