When you think of the industrial cleaning industry, you probably don't immediately associate it with "environmental responsibility." Zep Inc. is looking to change that.

As a leading provider of specialty chemical cleaning products, Zep Inc. has been servicing a wide variety of industrial, institutional and retail customers all over the world for over 100 years, with products ranging from detergents, disinfectants, hand cleaners, degreasers, deodorants, lubricants, to floor finishes.

Zep Inc. takes pride in creating powerful, top-quality cleaning products—and it knows you don’t have to sacrifice the environment to do so. Sustainability and environmental responsibility are integral parts of the Zep Inc. businesses, impacting everything from facility operations to product creation and packaging. The company’s commitment has resulted in innovative and unique practices that make Zep Inc.’s products superior for reasons beyond cleaning power.

Environmentally preferable cleaning solutions

Within Zep Inc. facilities, the company employs manufacturing processes to reduce energy consumption, packaging, water usage and trade waste. Care is taken to ensure all manufacturing process minimize negative impacts to the environment.

Zep's GreenLink™ products, in particular, demonstrate the company’s commitment to green initiatives. This line includes products certified by Green Seal™, EcoLogo, and DfE, all independent organizations dedicated to upholding strict standards of environmental leadership. These recognitions and certifications, displayed on each GreenLink product, demonstrate compliance with stringent eco-friendly business requirements from formula creation to manufacturing.

More than just good for business

The leaders of Zep, Inc. recognize that their sustainability initiatives represent a compelling business opportunity—consumers are clearly conscious of the environmental practices of businesses they support and many are specifically looking for products that align with their values. However, the Zep commitment runs deeper than that.

“As a public company, in particular, we have the opportunity to set an example for others…and hopefully influence them and their thinking about creating sustainability initiatives,” says Zep Inc. CEO, John K. Morgan.

Zep takes its responsibility as one of the country’s leading specialty chemical manufacturers seriously. While the company’s sustainability initiatives greatly impact the natural environment, they also serve to improve the business environment of the chemical manufacturing industry as a whole.

Further, Zep products and services support a broad range of industries including automotive, hospitality, food processing, car washing, government, manufacturing, institutional, and municipalities. Zep Inc. demonstrates the successful integration of green initiatives to many companies that are interested in further advancing their own sustainability initiatives.

With the help of Zep Superior Solutions, green business is growing and you’ll never look at industrial cleaning products the way you used to.
