We are pleased to announce that PORTCO has been awarded the ISSA Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS) with honors and CIMS-Green Building (CIMS-GB) certification. Both of these certifications are for operations nationally throughout the US.
ISSA has created the CIMS and CIMS-GB certification as the most recognizable industry stamp-of-approval to identify cleaning service providers who are true companies of excellence and committed to customer satisfaction. CIMS is also the first consensus based management standard that outlines the primary characteristics of a successful, quality cleaning organization.
Following a comprehensive assessment of management and operational execution, PORTCO demonstrated compliance with the five core principles of CIMS and CIMS-GB: • Quality systems • Service delivery • Human resources • Health, safety, and environmental stewardship • Management commitment
The Green Building certification of CIMS (CIMS-GB) focuses on the delivery of an environmentally-preferable and sustainable cleaning service. This certification complies with many criteria of the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Green Building Rating System, while greening operations overall.
We are excited about this certification and the value it brings to you. As one of only a select group of CIMS certified organizations worldwide, we believe it sets us apart in our commitment to: quality and service excellence, efficient and sustainable operations and cost effective solutions.
The CIMS certification is valid for two years
