10th sustainability survey findings published

08 September 2016

Results from the latest survey on sustainability compares the findings with the previous nine years of industry studies on this topic.

Published by the British Institute of Facilities Management (BIFM), the Sustainability Survey: Where are we 10 years on was announced at a launch event in Bristol.

It highlighted emerging themes such as wellbeing and productivity, which have the potential to impact on traditional FM sustainability practices.

There is increasing attention on building information modelling (BIM) and other areas of technology, along with additional factors including pay, diversity and social value.

Rapid change within the FM sector is highlighted as one of the issues making sustainability predictions difficult, due to changes within workplaces and the widening scope of FM.

The report also includes advice for FM professionals and organisations on daily sustainability activities, such as reviewing current definitions, carrying out risk reviews and providing guidance and case studies.

Its advice is aimed at maximising sustainable training initiatives while developing increased awareness and establishing an evidence-based approach that includes both financial and non-financial benefits.

The report isavailable to download from
