Event description

Description

In recognising the growing awareness of sustainability, presented to us by the media, Government policies and events, FM consultancies and FM account managers within corporations are increasingly providing a more sustainable business approach to FM. This talk explores the benefits that this approach can make to the triple bottom line, from financial gain to new business opportunities. The very concept of sustainability is changing the values of an organisation.

Benchmarking sustainability performance of the FM sector is becoming a must in a changing world which has seen the collapse of Carillion and a number of other big companies teeter close to the edge; the revision to the much anticipated Crown Commercial Services FM contract; promotion of social value and wellbeing through the business and supply chain; and the ground shaking effect of Blue Planet II and the war on single use plastics.

Join us as we discuss the impacts on the FM sector and how we are moving towards a culture of sustainability in the services we offer and people we employ through a unique insight of the sector from the Sustainable FM Index. Sunil Shah, Previous Chair of IWFM Sustainability Group and Managing Director of Acclaro Advisory will look through what has changed and what this will mean for us in the year ahead.

The event will include the regional AGM and culminate in refreshments and networking. We have allowed for a maximum of 40 attendees for this opportunity to gain knowledge and boost your CPD by attending this event. Please see the IWFM main website (South Region Documents) for the AGM agenda and notes from the 2018 AGM.

This evening is open to all, including non-members and we encourage you to invite friends and colleagues.

We would like to thank Specsavers for hosting this event and providing refreshments and our speaker for sharing his knowledge and experience.
