As business leaders step up the corporate response to the sustainability agenda, facilities managers will increasingly be asked to deliver support service that is broader and deeper than ever before – often with continuing demand for cost reduction. Facilities Management (FM ) today is regarded as a vital function: a service that is both in support of the people who deliver the core business and in support of boardroom aspirations for corporate social responsibility (CSR). CEOs are asking that their facilities and non-core activities should adequately reflect their market position. Facilities Managers are commonly finding themselves at the centre of the capability to respond to the CSR agenda and being asked to deliver greater value at lower cost. Through applying “Sustainable FM” they can deliver both, simultaneously, e.g. better supporting staff needs, and reducing all forms of waste in pursuit of more sustainable operations. Sustainable FM is a cost benefit which ensures the continuity of an organisation. IF IT COSTS MORE, IT IS NOT SUSTAINABLE FACILITY MANAGEMENT.
