Sustainability is a common goal within the USA, Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world, but the approach to sustainability will depend on the site, corporation, locality, national regulations, culture, people, manufacturing process, and environmental influences.
The definition of sustainability is a process or state that can be maintained at a certain level for as long as it is wanted. Sustainability also meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability to meet future needs.
The three critical elements for consideration in developing an approach to sustainable cleaning are considerations for the planet, people, and processes. A companies’ approach to sustainability differs and STERIS has worked with companies on the site and corporate level to help achieve short-term and long-term sustainability goals. This presentation shares some of these examples.
