Leading your company with today's Sustainable initiatives

Sustainability’s relevance has continued to grow across industries and is especially relevant for the built environment because facilities are responsible for 40% of global energy use and are central nodes in the way materials are processed and end up in landfills.  Is it a good thing that the world is in danger from climate change?  No, but on the bright side, it puts Facility Managers in a position to help solve one of the world’s most complex problems.

Almost everyone wants to preserve the world’s natural beauty and ecosystems, but it is very easy to feel overwhelmed with the challenge and the myriad potential actions available.  What is the most pressing problem?  Is it the same one that the employees and customers are focused on?  What is the most effective way to solve that problem?  The presentation will talk about processes for identifying potential sustainability solutions for your site.  Jeremy will share some of the common solutions that apply to many Facilities.  Once you have a list of potential solutions, you need to then prioritize and focus on the most impactful, he will share frameworks for how to do that.  Lastly, you need approval and that means building consensus and communicating about sustainability and he will cover some of the steps that have been successful for him.
