Aetna Building Maintenance recognizes the importance of deploying resources close to our clients and establishing deep community ties. Our commitment to the communities in which we work creates opportunities to form critical alliances with local businesses and organizations, and helps our contributions get to the people and places that need them most. For Aetna, an important facet of community support is creating opportunities for environmentally sound and sustainable actions, such as creating a community garden and offering educational support for institutions committed to change. We are always looking for new ways that we can make a difference.
Aetna Building Maintenance has been a leader in good stewardship of the environment. In providing both our janitorial and facilities management services, we seek to promote a healthy and safe environment for our clients, our employees and the larger community. Aetna believes that sustainability cannot be achieved by any single measure, but rather, requires a more holistic approach. This guiding philosophy is the basis of Aetna’s Sustainable Green Cleaning Program as well as other initiatives in this area.
Our Sustainable Green Cleaning Programs represent the latest in innovative services from Aetna, uniting certified chemicals, tools, processes, training, service and support. Where desired, Aetna’s Sustainable Green Cleaning Program can help those interested in pursuing LEED® certification. In fact, an effective Sustainable Green Cleaning Program can contribute 25 percent of the points necessary for basic certification. In comparison with other efforts, the points available through implementation of a Sustainable Green Cleaning Program provide the cheapest cost-per-point.
In addition to our cleaning programs, Aetna’s facilities maintenance team works with clients to find more sustainable solutions through processes such as Energy Management. Aetna provides expert guidance as clients seek opportunities to use more green products and practices in their maintenance efforts.

Aetna Building Maintenance employees are excited about their newest community initiative, a Community Garden. Utilizing an empty lot near their Columbus, Ohio headquarters, Aetna employees are hard at work making preparations for the upcoming plantings, and eventual harvest with the bounty to benefit the surrounding neighborhood as well as the Mid-Ohio Food Bank.
