The public comment period for this standard is now closed. An updated version of the standard will be published shortly.
The primary purpose of the Cleaning Services (CSv2.0-2020) standard, is to define environmental and social performance criteria for the provision of cleaning services, in particular the environmental impacts resulting from activities undertaken by service providers. This standard is limited to activities directly controlled by the service provider without imposing requirements on the built environment.
This standard applies to general cleaning services. This includes the following categories:
🔘 Domestic (household) cleaning
🔘 Commercial cleaning (e.g., offices, schools, shopping centres, public buildings, outdoor and event cleaning.)
🔘 Healthcare facilities cleaning as long as there is no conflict between existing policies in the healthcare facility and cleaning procedures based on GECA standard
🔘 Window cleaning that can be reached without the use of any lifts (not requiring working at heights)
🔘 Hard floor strip and sealing (e.g., Wooden floors, tiles, stone)
🔘 Carpet cleaning (e.g., Hot water extraction, Encapsulation)
On 15 March 2021, in collaboration with Edge Environment and the Global Product Stewardship Council, GECA was awarded a grant by the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment to tackle the issue of commercial office furniture going to landfill. The group will use the funding to design a product stewardship scheme that will help reduce the estimated 30,000 tonnes of furniture – much of it in perfectly good condition – that ends up in Australia’s waste stream each year.Read More See all news
