Have You Gone Green?

The transition to green janitorial services can be confusing at best. Being more socially responsible is always worth the time and money.

With Emerald Choice you now have the option to choose how much of both you want to invest. Whichever you choose, it must be sustainable. Sustainability is defined as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability to meet the needs of the future.”

The City Wide Emerald Choice Program offers different Shades of Green™ so you can choose what is best for your business.

City Wide believes every building can be more green. So whether you want to move toward LEED Certification or you’re just looking to “do the right thing” City Wide can help you get there.
