Consistency is hard for Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) companies to attain because they often have to rely on a different distributor for every property. This can lead to inconsistent, rogue cleaning programs that create safety, health and sustainability issues.
In addition to tackling inconsistency issues, this REIT company had to make sure all of their properties aligned with their corporate vision of sustainability and marketability. This included making a switch to sustainable consumables across five states.
Our solution consisted of a single product portfolio and point of contact, with complete visibility across an easy online reporting system. Veritiv also provided a cost-neutral switch to sustainable consumables across every property.
Veritiv's solution resulted in this REIT achieving 80% sustainable product purchasing – increasing marketability and exceeding LEED® v4 O+M standards by 5%. Additional benefits included complete removal of hazardous cleaning products and healthier buildings overall.
