About this course

Sustainability is closely tied to facility management because of the relationship each has with operations and maintenance. FMs have long been focused on the tactical implementation of sustainability in how they operate their buildings on a day-to-day basis. There is a need for FM to shift from the tactical to a more strategic level.  FMs must look at sustainability as a strategy that leverages the facility assets with the organization’s overall business strategy to help ensure its viability and long term success. A WELL building must address known dangers such Legionella and formaldehyde, as well as address quality of life improvements, like acoustic comfort and biophilia.
