The sustainable cleaning charter is a voluntary initiative of the European soap, detergent and maintenance products industry (A.I.S.E.).
The aim is to encourage European producers to continually make improvements in sustainability and to encourage consumers to adopt more sustainable ways of cleaning and hygiene.
The charter is a life cycle analysis (LCA) based framework. It promotes and facilitates a common industry approach to sustainability practice and reporting. A wide variety of activities and initiatives are covered, ranging from the human and environmental safety of chemicals and products, to eco-efficiency, occupational health and safety, resource use and consumer information.
