Join Laurie Gilmer, PE, CFM, SFP, LEED AP O&M, CxA, FMP, CDT on Tuesday, March 24th at 12:00 EST as she presents a webinar on “Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Net Zero”
As Facility Managers we are exposed to both internal and external influences regarding our greenhouse gas emissions, but what does that really mean and is it really of any consequence? In light of the fact that the built environment represents 30% of the total US Greenhouse Gas Emissions, and as guardians of our organizations’ built environment, it appears that there must be some relevance. Coupled with that is an increase in reporting mandates and emission reduction goals. The facility manager has a key role to play. In this session, we will address sources of greenhouse gas emissions, how they are categorized and calculated, internal and external drivers for emissions reporting, and future trends for facility reporting and performance.
