ABM builds value for the global community through sustainable practices in the workplace, marketplace and environment

ABM GreenCare®At ABM, green isn’t just a passing fad or a marketing gimmick. We embody our operations with a spirit of environmental stewardship. ABM understands that true success hinges on our ability to responsibly minimize our environmental impact while providing quality service.

Our clients look to us to help with their sustainability efforts too. Before green became a world-wide buzzword, we developed The ABM GreenCare® program.

ABM GreenCare® can help you make improvements in four key areas: environmental and social responsibility, employee productivity and retention, property protection and fiscal responsibility. ABM GreenCare® includes cleaning, recycling, energy services and other sustainable processes that help:

  • maintain and improve the community and the environment
  • protect your property’s value, and reduce energy use for lower utility and operating costs
  • keep employees more content, healthy and productive
  • enhance your bottom line

ABM is one of the largest participants in the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® program. ENERGY STAR® offers real benchmarking and analysis for member companies. We analyze our clients’ buildings and recommend options to improve energy efficiency.  

USGBC and LEED-Certification

The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a non-profit organization made up of leaders from every sector of the building maintenance industry. They work to promote environmentally responsible buildings. With sustainability as their core purpose, their mission is to transform the way buildings and communities are designed, built, and operated.

The USGBC created the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™, the nationally accredited benchmark for rating the operation of green buildings. As a USGBC member and LEED expert, ABM can develop specific maintenance procedures for your facility, as well as track and document LEED credits for the areas we provide service, to help you qualify for and maintain certification.

We’ll continue to monitor, assess and learn new ways to improve our own environmental impact. And we’ll use that knowledge to assist clients in their move toward greater sustainability.
