With the summer heatwaves resulting in the hottest temperatures ever recorded in this country, the introduction of green initiatives that help organisations meet sustainability targets are more important than ever.
Allied to this, there is an increasing drive for organisations to meet Environmental, Social, and Governance factors (ESG).
For Facilities Management this means meeting the wider definition of sustainability, one that delivers social value by providing a built environment that contributes positively to wellbeing and productivity.
The pandemic hasn’t slowed down the sector’s aim of delivering sustainability in all its forms but the way it has changed the way in which people work and live is significant. Research has shown that those who work mainly from home are adopting less healthy habits, from neglecting to move enough during the day to neglecting their nutrition and hydration.
The Roundtable Panel
FMJ, in conjunction with Zip Water brought together a panel of experts to share their expertise in providing sustainable and healthy working environments.
The panel comprised hydration experts from Zip Water, senior Facilities Managers from both the private and public sector and representatives from two of the leading FM service providers.
