Sustainability “How-to Guide” Series
The IFMA Sustainablitiy Committee (ISC) is charged with developing and implementing strategic and tactical sustainability initiatives. A current initiative involves working with the IFMA Foundation on the development of a series of “How-to Guides” that will help educate facility management professionals and others with similar interests in a wide variety of topics associated with sustainability and the built environment.
This document is the result of a partnership between the IFMA Foundation and IFMA, through its Sustainability Committee, each working to fulfill the shared goal of furthering sustainability knowledge. Conducting research like this provides both IFMA and the foundation with great insight into what each can do as an organization to assist the facility management community at large.
