Sustainability:
Sustainable Supply Chain

Harvard incorporates a sustainable supply chain and appropriate procurement policy of select products, tools and equipment tailored for each client's site.

Harvard has fostered a sustainable procurement system that is comprised of nationally selected vendors and locally recognized distributors. Other attributes include an environmentally preferred standardized purchasing policy that includes “Just in Time” inventory control to help reduce shipping frequencies and storage space.

The proximity of the distributors in relation to Harvard operations and client facilities help reduce our carbon emissions and overall corporate carbon footprint; reported annually via the Carbon Disclosure Project.

  • While Harvard’s decision to employ a third-party compliant program provides clients with guaranteed low-emitting products and materials, its rigorous audit systems bolster its commitment to continued improvement through the development of site-specific action plans and periodic benchmarking.
  • Ongoing tracking and reporting via the Harvard Smart Quality Assurance Program is performed virtually in real-time for 24-7 access and monitoring.
  • The Harvard 100-point Site Sustainability Scorecard offers client partners an invaluable opportunity for customized, environmental tracking and reporting of our sustainable green cleaning management practices.  Administered through the Harvard Sustainability Department, the Scorecard provides client partners with an objective level of standardized practices and sustainability benefits.
