Facilities Management publishes first sustainability profile
Management announces the publication of the first comprehensive
report of FM sustainability initiatives and successes.
Over the last number of years, Facilities Management (FM) has
endeavored to enhance its policies, practices and focus in order
to contribute to the success of university sustainability. In
2012, under the direction and leadership of Melissa
Rockwell-Hopkins, Executive Director, FM decided to embrace
sustainability. Inspired by Albert Einstein’s observation that
“we can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we
used when we created them”, FM changed its organizational
structure to best carry out its approach to sustainability. FM
sustainability strategies are closely aligned with the metrics
and guidelines established by the Association for the
Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education Sustainability
Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (AASHE STARS).
