New ethical cleaning framework launched at Foy's Arcade

A game-changing ethical cleaning certification scheme was launched last week at ISPT’s Foy’s Arcade.

An industry-led initiative

The Cleaning Accountability Framework (CAF) is an independent, multi-stakeholder initiative that seeks to improve labour standards and cleaning quality in Australia. The national scheme means that cleaning companies, building owners and investors can now adopt ethical labour practices for cleaners.

A proud supporter 

ISPT is a founding member of CAF, with seven CAF-compliant properties across Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Canberra to date. We’ll continue to certify all retail and commercial properties in our portfolio.

Daryl Browning, CEO of ISPT says

“ISPT is proud to have been a supporter of the CAF since its inception, demonstrating how we value workers’ rights. Our customers value quality cleaning services when they are in an ISPT building. This leads to longer leases and ultimately returns for our investors, and the 50%+ of working Australians these investors represent.”

For the first time in Australia, buildings have the ability to become CAF-certified, signifying responsible ownership and safe, fair working conditions for cleaners. As the scheme is implemented throughout Australia, we expect to see an increase in responsible, fair and ethical procurement practices.
