A.I.S.E publishes new Activity & Sustainability Report

At its General Assembly in Brussels on 21 June 2016, A.I.S.E. launched its new Activity & Sustainability Report 2015-16.

Under the banner "Cleanliness & Hygiene at Home and in Society", the report includes 5 page feature on the socio-economic contribution that this industry makes to the European economy.

The report also communicates the latest sustainability figures for the industry.

Very strong results are reported on sustainability progress. A.I.S.E.’s Charter for Sustainable Cleaning is a voluntary initiative by the industry to undertake continuous improvement, offering a life-cycle based sustainability assurance system for products in the sector.

Membership of the Sustainability Charter rises steadily, with more than 230 companies currently committed, with all manufacturing companies reporting key performance indicators (KPIs). In the past 10 years, the KPI reporting shows a reduction of:

-30% in energy use per tonne of production

-25% in CO2 emissions.

The number of consumer products now carrying the Advanced Sustainability Profile (ASP) logo and targeting ambitious sustainability criteria has increased by 29% to 1.29 billion units. From the laundry category alone, 41% of products comply with the Charter’s ASPs.
