Webinar: Green Cleaning for Improved Health: The Return on Investment of Green Cleaning in Schools

Thursday, June 22

1:00-2:30 p.m. EDT

Webinar participants will learn how to

  • incorporate evidence-based green cleaning techniques and best practices into a comprehensive system for achieving indoor environmental health;

  • utilize data tracking and evaluation strategies to develop a business case, a value proposition, and a communication strategy that generate broader acceptance, compliance, and funding for green cleaning;

  • design and successfully implement a strategy to identify, collect, and use data with low-cost, easy-to-use tools (e.g., the School IAQ Assessment Mobile App) to make the case for green cleaning approaches;

  • track such technical measures as return on investment; the results of surface adenosine triphosphate (ATP) testing; asthma incidence, attendance rates, and other important health/performance measures; reductions in occupant complaints; and improvement in indoor air quality (IAQ); and

  • replicate the strategies used by school districts that have successfully developed and implemented green cleaning programs to reduce costs and improve health by using the “Communicate” and “Evaluate” Key Drivers of the IAQ Tools for Schools Framework.
