Entrepreneur and thought-leader Steve Ashkin is widely considered the Father of Green Cleaning. In addition to a long list of accomplishments and awards, ISSA, the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association, recently recognised Ashkin as one of the most influential members of the cleaning industry over the past 100 years.  In addition to the building owners, property management companies, product manufacturers, distributors, and service providers with whom he consults, he currently serves on the US Green Building Council’s LEED for Existing Buildings committee, International WELL Building Institute’s Materials committee, and co-chairs the ISSA’s global sustainability initiative in his efforts to improve the industry’s success and the lives of the 100 million workers it supports.
