Sustainability Metrics Program
Many ACI member companies provide sustainability reports and statements that describe corporate efforts to reduce their environmental footprints. In 2009, ACI and its members embarked on a pilot project to report on a common set of sustainability-related metrics relevant to both its consumer packaged goods and raw material supplier members.
As part of ACI’s Sustainability Metrics Project, 24 member companies participated in a project to track environmental sustainability metrics. Tracking these metrics provides a baseline and indicators by which we can measure sustainability-related performance for ACI member operations in the United States associated with cleaning products.
Metrics are collected in four categories:
- Energy Use (electricity, steam, and fuel)
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions (CO2 equivalents)
- Water Use
- Waste Generation
The data reported by the individual companies was compared with U.S. production rates associated with cleaning products for each company to produce a normalized value, which represents performance per unit of production.
The data reflects cleaning product-related production of companies which formulate and produce the end products and companies that provide ingredients used in cleaning product formulations.
