Corporate Environmental Performance

HOST’s environmental scores for the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Building for Environmental and Economic Sustainability Life Cycle Analysis are the best in the carpet cleaning category, leaving HOST with the smallest environmental footprint around. We intend to keep it that way.

Environmental Management Approach

Many small efforts add up to making a big environmental impact. For instance, we give shipping preference to those using renewable resources. We use point-of-use water heaters to minimize heat loss through pipes and reclaim heat elsewhere to be reused. We source locally and recycle extensively. We are on the constant lookout for other such opportunities.

Approved by Environmentally Conscious Schools
