Sustainability is fast becoming a necessity, with companies seeking to take advantage of the benefits of energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, and sustainable business practices. Unfortunately, many facility managers do not have a sufficiently adequate understanding of sustainability or the experience in change management to take advantage of the cost savings and performance improvements associated with “going green.” In this six-week training program, resources, information, practical lessons and applications from field professionals will be provided for participants to complete a comprehensive facility assessment, develop a sustainability improvement plan, and take the first steps toward implementing sustainability practices including waste elimination, energy efficiencies, sustainable procurement practices, improvements to company culture and employee training and motivation. Topics to be covered include: green policy, green purchasing, marketing green, contractual negotiations, monitoring and record keeping, troubleshooting and compliance, green assessments and audits, and change management.
