The American Cleaning Institute (ACI)

Reporting Our Progress


Understanding and improving the environmental performance of the industry is a key priority for the American Cleaning Institute. As an essential step to reaching this goal, ACI began tracking industry-wide data on member facility operations in 2009 and reported results publicly in our first biennial Sustainability Report in 2011. Since then, ACI has published five reports showcasing our industry work in sustainability and continues to showcase the important sustainability work being done by the cleaning product supply chain.

ACI is challenging companies in the cleaning products industry and supporting supply chain to align their corporate climate strategy and targets with the 1.5°C ambition, which strives to reach net-zero global emissions by 2050. These case studies highlight just a few of the ways companies are working to make those commitments a reality:
