Green Team

In 2009, the management team at Virox was challenged to look internally at all activities within the company from materials management to production, research and development to sales and put the concept of “SUSTAINABILITY” into practice. As a result of this focus we created a “GREEN TEAM” which includes members from each department. In addition to creating a Green Team, Virox also decided to pursue LEED Certification for our corporate headquarters. What better way to put sustainability into practice?

AHP® Green Certified Products

At Virox, we believe claims of product environmental preferability should be validated by credible third party certification. Today, we have multiple product lines that meet both industry and government requirements to be labelled a “green” product. In Canada, we have a variety of disinfectant cleaners with EcoLogo/UL Certifications (sold under the brand name Prevail™. In the US, AHP® has recently been approved as the FIRST hydrogen peroxide disinfectant to meet DfE (Design for the Environment) certification. We also have a number of AHP® products that have been approved as cleaners under GreenGuard and GreenSeal.
