The FM sector supervises the cleansing, safety and security, and other maintenance activities essential to the maintenance and performance optimization of any center. As they are in charge of the day-to-day procedures of buildings, FM managers are pivotal in efforts promoting energy performance and minimizing carbon impact in various structures in conformity with sustainability agenda.
Jamal Lootah, President of MEFMA, said: "Power usage has long been a significant problem for the entire built environment sector. Bookkeeping for 35 per cent of the world's overall energy usage, structures have come to be the target of intensive conservation initiatives developed to dramatically lower their electrical energy use. Stakeholders, consisting of the FM community, are carefully teaming up making certain that, with each other, we could achieve our energy sustainability objectives. MEFMA blazes a trail in these efforts between East. We are continuously functioning to put across our message by joining important seminars such as WFES and organizing appropriate workshops to reach out to as several regional FM firms as feasible. We are now seeing favorable outcomes and we plan to sustain our gains."
