Working together to end exploitation in the cleaning industry

The Cleaning Accountability Framework (CAF) is a world-first, game-changing organisation whose mission is to improve labour practices in the cleaning industry. CAF works with cleaners, tenants, contractors, property owners, facility managers, and investors across the cleaning supply chain to ensure ethical labour practices through our promotion of:

CAF Icon DecentWork 1
Decent work

Cleaners have the right to work that is fairly paid, safe, secure, freely chosen, and undertaken with dignity

CAF Icon SustainProcurement
Sustainable Procurement

We help bring transparency and accountability to cleaning supply chains

CAF Icon BestPractice 1
Best practice

We are setting a national standard for the cleaning industry and reward best practice through our CAF Certification Scheme

Why get CAF Certified?

The CAF Certification Scheme provides a credible framework to measure social compliance within the cleaning industry. Investors, property owners, building managers, cleaning contractors and tenants benefit from improved procurement processes and reduced risks, while cleaners are assured of fair pay and working conditions.

ISPT is proud to have been a supporter of the Cleaning Accountability Framework 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 Australian workers these investors represent.
