OUR VISION IS TO EMBED SUSTAINABILITY AS A FUNDAMENTAL VALUE THROUGHOUT THE ENTERPRISE.
DeWhit’s commitment to sustainability yields benefits that far exceed its investment of time and resources.
Many companies think first of increased operational efficiency and waste diversion, and there is ample evidence for that benefit. For example, some of our customers have significantly reduced their electrical usage thereby avoiding as much as $5 million annually in utility costs. Through the use of DeWhit's waste management program some of our clients are now recycling over 50% of former waste, avoiding tens of thousands of dollars annually in landfill tipping fees. These successes and savings in operational efficiency are just the beginning of what is possible.
The business case for sustainability is clear and compelling. We combine environmentally friendly cleaning products, equipment, processes, measures, and training to provide clients with a clean, healthy, and productive environment. It is indeed possible to "do well by doing good." DeWhit's reputation for ethical leadership and operational excellence is based on doing what is right in the present for the benefit of the future.
Our entire operational management team has achieved Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) ISSA Certification Expert (I.C.E.) with Green Building Expert status. In Green-specific and LEED facilities we adhere to the standards of the GS-42 GreenSeal™ Standard for Commercial and Institutional Cleaning Services and ISSA CIMS-GB®. Whatever your needs, DeWhit is committed to providing safe, sustainable services that will help you achieve your goals.
Green cleaning programs promote health, safety and social consciousness.
Processes focus on improving indoor air quality, recycling and minimizing the use of raw materials and toxic products that require disposal.
Green cleaning increases worker satisfaction, improves employee morale, reduces absenteeism and promotes productivity, efficiency and retention of employees.
Green cleaning helps reduce the cost to building management and tenants, including costs associated with sick leave and productivity loss.
Sustainable solutions meeting LEED standards contribute to the bottom line: people, planet, & profit.
