SUSTAINABILITY IS A JOURNEY OF CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT
GreenAble best practices save our clients millions of dollars each year through reduced operating expenses and lower energy costs.
“To make the knowledge of green cleaning and green engineering practices available to everyone in the real estate industry. By providing real estate owners and managers with expert information and innovations we can reduce energy consumption, water consumption, increase waste diversion, and protect our infrastructure; we make a significant impact on the world around us.”
– Mark Kelly, President, Able Services
As the sustainability landscape continues to evolve, our service offering matures to match the needs of our clients and the marketplace. Able Services proactively seeks out the latest evolutions in the industry and strongly believes the Zero Waste movement further refines the sustainability objective.
“Zero waste is sending nothing to the landfill. Literally Zero. This goal of zero is near impossible at the moment because we have yet to evolve into a circular economy so as defined by the USZWBC, Zero Waste is the diversion of 90% of trash from the landfill.” ZWIA.org

Being awarded the first Platinum certified LEED EB building in the United States established our commitment to green engineering and fostered our GreenAble philosophy; sustainability is a journey of continuous performance improvement.

Being a responsible member of the business community means you also protect the environment. Able Services has embraced “green cleaning” as we recognize, support, and promote environmental stewardship. We evaluate our daily operations and always look for the most sustainable processes to stay true to our commitment.

We don’t just say we do it. Able Facility Services is in the top 1% of all custodial services providers in the market according to the Cleaning Industry Management Standard (CIMS). CIMS is a comprehensive certification that applies to all aspects of our business – including management, operations, performance systems, and processes. By making a commitment to quality and documenting standardized processes in facility settings, we have formalized how we deliver services. Compliance with the standards demonstrates that Able is structured to consistently meet our customers’ needs and expectations.
Our goal is to deliver a clean and healthy facility for our clients. But in order to meet today’s ever increasing competitive landscape we need to be smart about how we clean. Able’s Lean Clean program is a collaboration between our team and yours. We work with you, your tenants, and our janitors to devise staggered cleaning plans. Not every space needs to be cleaned in the same way.
We have successfully partnered with our clients and helped over 500 achieve various levels of LEED certifications across the United States. One building in particular was the Cal EPA, which was the first LEED Platinum rated building in the United States.
Day cleaning is an alternative approach to keeping your facility clean and reducing your energy consumption. Why leave the lights on longer than you have to? A day cleaning program combined with our green cleaning materials are not harmful to our janitors, your tenants or the environment.
