Let’s 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 throughout the cleaning industry. CAF works with cleaners, tenants, building owners and investors across the cleaning supply chain to ensure ethical procurement through our promotion of:

CAF Icon BestPractice 1

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

Why get CAF Certification?

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.
