Sustainability

Sustainability underpins all of the activities of the Charities Facilities Management Group.

We use the definition of sustainable development proposed by the Brundtland Commision, which suggests that sustainable devleopment is "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs'. As such, sustainable practice for facilities managers is not just about saving energy, but involves a wide range of practices addressing environmental, social and economic issues.
