Why the Industry Needs Your Support to Advance Cleaning

April 18, 2024

Earlier this month, the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) began seeking feedback regarding the next version (v5) of the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.

Steve Ashkin, president of The Ashkin Group LLC and an advocate for sustainability within the cleaning industry, recently shared his thoughts on why he views LEED v5 as a setback to the cleaning industry. A member of the USGBC’s LEED Operations and Maintenance (O+M) committee, Ashkin explains in the below video how the proposed updates potentially will have a negative impact on cleaning operations.

For more on LEED v5, be sure to attend ISSA’s FREE webinar—Proposed LEED V5 Revisions: Industry Setbacks & How You Can Take Action—taking place April 22 at 12:00 p.m. CT.

To access the current LEED v5 drafts and voice your concerns, visit the USGBC website.
