CIMS is the first consensus-based management standard that outlines the primary characteristics of a successful, quality cleaning organization.
Think of it as a way to differentiate your organization from the competition, demonstrate your commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, improve your overall operations, and save money.
The New CIMS-GB Criteria and Designation Are Here!
To help meet the growing demand for green and "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design" (LEED) certification, the Cleaning Industry Management Standard & Certification Program has been expanded to include new "Green Building" (GB) criteria and a new optional GB designation.
Implemented as the sixth dimension of CIMS, the new criteria and designation offer cleaning organizations a certification that is closely tailored to provide their customers with precisely what they need to secure points under the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance (LEED-EBOM) Green Building Rating System, while greening their operations overall. As such, CIMS-GB certification demonstrates an organization's capability to assist customers in achieving LEED-EBOM points and offers customers assurance that the organization they select is prepared to partner with them in the LEED process.
