Throughout our history, we have never forgotten that our company is only as strong as the communities around us. CloroxPro enables our customers and their patrons to thrive by focusing on actions that protect their well-being. This commitment has manifested in many ways, including providing disaster relief assistance, partnering with industry groups to remain at the forefront of public health issues and supporting those on the frontlines, and educating our customers on how to properly clean for health in shared spaces.
In the wake of the severe Atlantic hurricane season in 2021–2022, CloroxPro provided a multi-million-dollar product donation to Convoy of Hope to help with recovery efforts and disaster relief across several U.S. states. CloroxPro’s donation, along with shipping and distribution services from Convoy of Hope, helped recipients address cleaning, disinfection and mold remediation efforts that are critical in the aftermath of hurricanes and other natural disasters. In 2022, CloroxPro also made monetary and product donations to a rural clinic in Tennessee in desperate need of upgrades necessary to continue providing life-saving care to local residents.
In 2021, Clorox Healthcare became an affiliate partner of Practice Greenhealth®, the leading membership and networking organization for sustainable health care, to connect with healthcare facilities interested in sustainability. This partnership will help Clorox align with healthcare industry sustainability goals, better understand current challenges, and help inform future product development and service offerings.
To address the need for more qualified infection preventionists (IPs), every year since 2021, Clorox Healthcare awards scholarships to IPs working in communities with an elevated need to attend the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) annual conference. This educational event helps them acquire scientific insights in infection prevention and control, create peer-to-peer connections from leaders in the field, and gain exposure to the latest products and technologies.
Lastly, the COVID-19 pandemic raised public awareness about how illness-causing germs spread, resulting in higher expectations about cleaning and disinfecting facilities. However, many cleaning professionals struggle with meeting these new demands, particularly given on-going staff shortages, retention issues and inflation-induced budget constraints. To address this need, in 2022, CloroxPro launched CloroxPro™ HealthyClean™, a new online learning platform for cleaning professionals. HealthyClean™ delivers best-in-class education and training to teach thousands of frontline cleaners and managers how to clean for health — safely, effectively and efficiently. An interactive, on-demand “Trained Specialist” course is the ONLY industry-wide certificate program accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)4, meeting the globally recognized standards for program quality and training results.
