Buildings account for a large portion of our carbon footprint, the demand for energy, and water use. The facility manager is in a unique position to measure, monitor, and decrease consumption and footprint by conserving these resources and reducing operational costs through increased efficiency.
There are several challenges to measuring, monitoring and benchmarking a facility’s carbon footprint and consumption. These challenges rest primarily in the tools we use to benchmark performance, and the “state of the art” in metering and monitoring of utility services and the impact of these utilities on carbon footprint. Global reporting standards have been developed to assess the impact of energy and water use and carbon footprint. These global standards, such as the Global Reporting Initiative and the GHG Protocol Initiative, provide guidelines and tools for measurement and reporting to support an organization’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and a standard way to assess environmental and Triple Bottom Line performance.
In this session, the speakers will explore the role of the Facility Manager in measuring, monitoring, and reporting energy, water, and carbon footprint, and how to fit those measurements and reporting systems into the global framework of reporting that aligns with an organization’s CSR and reporting requirements.
