Net Zero Carbon

Net zero carbon represents a kind of crossroads for a series of issues that can only get more significant for facilities managers, their organisations, their communities, our wider society and – this is not overstating it – the world.

Energy, environment, sustainability, responsible business – these are increasingly climbing the list of today’s most pressing concerns for business and government. FM, and the built environment professions more generally, have a critical role to play assessing needs, challenges and opportunities, defining the right strategy and tactics, and managing implementation for successful outcomes – outcomes that broadly focus on optimising the use of resources, reducing any harmful effects and increasing the benefits delivered to individuals, organisations and communities at large.

In recent years we have seen positive action on a number of fronts, including moves by industry bodies to support professionals in improving energy performance, research and advice around the meaning of net zero and how that objective is being pursued, landmark commitments at several big industry players on carbon reduction, and more.

We also see positive action on these issues in the reports of contracts won by service providers, too, of course.

Recent net zero content on i-FM is listed below. In addition, you can use the i-FM Search function to explore our news, feature and comment content covering this and related issues. You can search on the topic ‘net zero carbon’ on our News & Features page – which brings up dozens of relevant articles - or on any keyword on our Search page.

You can also find good insights into recent and likely future changes to FM practice and the wider marketplace in our White Papers. Each of these pulls together information, views and advice from the top speakers participating in the annual Workplace Futures conference series. Not surprisingly, sustainability issues frequently figure in these discussions.

This site hub aims to provide easy access to a range of resources that offer FMs some of the information, insights and advice they need for a better understanding of current issues and what the future might hold for them and their organisations. All suggestions for new content are welcome – contact us anytime.
