Allergy Standards Limited’s Dr. John McKeon participated in the cleaning industry’s leading trade show to give a keynote on the advantages of cleaning to create the healthiest indoor environment and promote sustainable cleaning solutions

The asthma & allergy friendly®Certification Program, which is jointly run by Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), was thrilled to be a key participant in the ISSA Show North America 2022, an annual tradeshow that brings together influential figures in the commercial, institutional, and residential cleaning industries.

ISSA Show North America 2022, which took place on October 10 - 13, 2022 in Chicago, included various ESG sessions intended to elicit thoughtful debate on timely issues, including diversity, equity, and inclusion, driving value through healthy buildings, and cleaning for health. Dr. John McKeon, CEO of Allergy Standards Limited, delivered a keynote at the show entitled “Cleaning for Health to Create the Healthiest Possible Indoor Environment,” which was chaired by Patricia Olinger, the Executive Director of the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC). Their insightful discussion highlighted how an integrated approach is necessary when cleaning for health.

“The cleaning industry is rapidly changing, and the importance of education and training in the cleaning industry has never been more evident. The ISSA Show 2022 and it’s focus on 'cleaning for health' was the perfect opportunity to continue to build and promote our joint education program with GBAC,” said Dr. John McKeon. “Living the triple bottom line, of People, Planet, and Profit, is one of our core values. That is why the philosophy of ‘cleaning for health' is a key focus, not only for the ISSA Show 2022, but as part of our mission, to make healthy indoor air, and healthy indoor environments, available to everyone.”

The Certification Program was also delighted to support their asthma & allergy friendly® client partner, Renegade Brands, who exhibited at the ISSA Show and featured their CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly® Free and Clear laundry detergent – the first ever CERTIFIED laundry detergent. They also had the opportunity to meet with their CERTIFIED client partner, True Value. These clients were at ISSA to showcase products highlighting the importance of indoor air quality and a healthy home environment, which serve as the foundation of the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program.

“We were honored to exhibit at the ISSA Show as a sustainable laundry solution that contributes to a healthy home environment,” said Bill Sherman, CEO of Renegade Brands, Inc. “The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program has created a standard that allows us to provide consumers with a product that they can feel confident using in their homes.
