Our goal is to help the FM sector make more efficient use of resources and reduce waste - helping companies to cut costs, and build a reputation for corporate responsibility.
We are is currently engaging the FM sector to:
identify and quantify the potential for cost and waste savings;
run pilots to improve resource efficiency through optimised procurement of goods and services consumed in and by the sector, as well optimising the management of assets both within and across FM contracts;
share good practice to improve resource efficiency across whole sector; and
pilot alternative business models to reduce exposure to supply instability and price volatility.
A key part of this work is to develop:
standards for the resource-efficient procurement of FM services that can be used by both the public and private sector and could be adopted by FM contractors as service standards;
model wording for clauses that promote resource efficiency for each stage of the procurement process;
practical guidance on implementation, such as templates for minimising and managing waste; and
robust cost-benefit evidence for resource efficient service provision.
We have developed an interactive tool to help clients procuring or managing FM services to specify and measure resource and cost savings. Download our flyer to find out more.

We are looking for:
FM companies and clients to work with us to review a particular facility or service to determine where the greatest resource and cost savings could be made. We will provide you with an action plan highlighting actions and, if required, expert support to implement the recommendations.
FM clients who are procuring services or updating an existing contract and wish to explore resource-efficient FM services that deliver both cost and resource savings.
We also have resources available to help pilot alternative, resource efficient approaches to FM operations. We are already working with leading FM service providers to pilot new initiatives to reduce costs and drive out waste, and would love to discuss possible opportunities with you.
