Cleaning Products Industry Leaders Make Bold Commitments to Combat Climate Change, and Urge Other Businesses to do the Same


The American Cleaning Institute (ACI) is challenging companies in the cleaning products industry and supporting supply chain to align their corporate climate strategy and targets with the 1.5°C ambition, which strives to reach net-zero global emissions by 2050. Fifteen ACI members have already stepped up to the challenge with bold, science-based commitments.

As part of the cleaning product industry's commitment to reducing emissions in accordance with scientific consensus, ACI is announcing a new roadmap for action on climate change. ACI's ambition for the industry is to achieve net zero industry carbon emissions.

ACI's Roadmap for achieving its net zero ambition includes:

As a first step in support of the ambition, fifteen ACI members have committed to ACI's 1.5°C Climate Challenge, sending a clear signal to our industry as to what leadership looks like in the space of climate action.

Company commitments include:

"For us, creating a cleaner future means putting into practice today sustainable actions that will safeguard our society and our environment for tomorrow. For many, that will require fundamentally changing the way they do business," said Melissa Hockstad, ACI President & CEO. "We know the climate crisis facing our planet is bigger than any one industry, and it will take all of us, working together, to change our current trajectory. Our hope is that by getting all hands on deck now and prioritizing any and all action, we can ensure our collective impact on the planet is a positive one."
