Clearing the Sustainability-Wellness Hurdle: An Action Plan for FMs


Challenges persist in incorporating green practices into many facility organizations. For some it's a matter of cost, for others it's a lack of stakeholder motivation. So how can FMs advocate for operating a building that supports human health and wellness ... and equally important, why should they? The answer lies in two words: value proposition, and in this panel discussion, leading sustainability experts will present a business case for connecting sustainable operations and occupant wellness, and offer strategies to help clear the sustainability hurdle and encourage organization-wide acceptance of going green.


1. Define sustainability in an FM context
2. Identify top- and bottom-line benefits of sustainability/wellness programs
3. Develop a value proposition for sustainability/wellness-focused operations
4. Discuss how to engage occupants effectively
