Service providers

As businesses focus increasingly on cost savings and sustainability, you may find that clients ask you to report on your actions to improve resource efficiency, or you may need to demonstrate your commitment to improving performance within tenders.

Your clients may require you to develop and implement Resource Management Plans (RMP) for your FM Services.

Targets set in your service RMP should cascade through to your supply chain wherever possible. For example, include the following performance requirements into your supply agreements:

  • resource consumption;
  • waste arisings / recovery;
  • recycled content;
  • collaborative working; and
  • innovative solutions and shared savings.

Reporting on performance by suppliers is vital to inform your RMP monitoring and reporting. Ask your suppliers to report on metrics which are compatible with your RMP metrics.

More information on developing resource efficiency within specific working areas can be found in the relevant service sections.
