‘Sustainability Survey’ Will Educate the EPA on Industry Conservation
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has reached out to TRSA regarding the industry’s water and energy consumption. The linen, uniform and facility services industry is being looked at by all levels of policy makers as a source of environmental impact.
In order to highlight the linen, uniform and facility services industry’s positive efforts and to protect the industry from unnecessary regulatory involvement by federal and state policy makers, TRSA is conducting the TRSA Industry Sustainability Survey. This survey is derived from the information gathered by the previous Laundry ESP program, but TRSA has redesigned it to be more targeted and easier to complete.
The TRSA Industry Sustainability Survey is a tool we will use to benchmark how well the linen, uniform and facility services industry is doing to reduce the amount of water and energy consumed to process laundry. This information will also be used to benchmark against other industries to show that the commercial laundry industry should not be regulated to reduce water and energy consumption.
The most recent data we have available is from 2009. In an effort to update that information, TRSA is surveying the industry about their latest recordable water and energy usage. TRSA member and nonmember operators are welcome to participate.
Your confidential response will be sent to Mackay Research Group, which will compile the annual report. Responses are due April 2. For more information, contact John MacKay at firstname.lastname@example.org or 720.890.4255.
