6. IFMA Research and FMS Customer Research
7. Challenge 1: Were acting tactically, not strategically
IFMA SURVEY QUESTION: Which one of the following statements best describes your facilitys/organizations attitude toward green building concepts?
8. Were too busy chasing the pigs to build the fence
9. Challenge 2: Its difficult to forecast sustainability impacts
Cost Paradox
Why be green? Save Money
In customer calls, consistent belief that green means cost savings as well as environmental savings
Why not? Its too expensive!
73% selected Financial Challenges as a challenge to sustainability initiatives
10. Challenge 3: How do we change organizational behavior?

11. Using information to address these challenges
Get strategic about sustainability
Strategically manage building performance
Forecast the value of going green
Learn how to build a business case
Use lifecycle analysis and capital planning tools
Communicate!
Use your technology to communicate with employees
12. Managing Environmental Impacts and Building Performance
13. Strategically Managing Building Performance
First step: Identify areas of concern and areas of impact
You may care about all environment impacts
You only have resources (human, financial) to manage several
Energy, water, emissions, waste, etc.
14. Building Performance : Focus on quality not quantity
The fewest number of highest quality metrics possible
Too much becomes noise and is difficult to manage
Always better to under promise and over deliver!
15. Building Performance: Define Approach for Metrics
Baselines
Starting point for a given metric
Targets
Goal value for a given metric
Thresholds
Internal values to identify good or poor performance
Cross-tabs
Comparing two or more similar items
Benchmarks
External data used as basis for comparison
16. Example: Monthly Resource Use
BASELINE
Multi-year average
TARGET
Sum of related
Project forecasts
17. Building Performance: Looking at data over time
Current state
What is the situation on the ground today?
Snapshots
What has happened in the past?
Trends
Are there any relationships between the snapshots?
Can/should we continuously gather data?
Forecasts
What will happen based on assumptions?
18. Forecasting Environmental Impacts and Building Performance
19. Challenge 2: Its difficult to forecast sustainability impacts
Cost Paradox
Why be green? Save Money
In customer calls, consistent belief that green means cost savings as well as environmental savings
Why not? Its too expensive!
73% selected Financial Challenges as a challenge to sustainability initiatives
20. Forecasting: Use Capital Planning and Budgeting Methods
Look at cash flows and environmental impacts over time not just initial outlay
Use capital budgeting tools:
NPV
IRR
ROI
Evaluate multiple scenarios for a given project
Prioritize multiple projects
21. Forecasting: Basics of Capital Budgeting
Use common assumptions term of the evaluation, discount rate (cost of capital)
Identify initial outlay (IO)
Identify components of cost and benfits models
Costs: Initial Outlay, Ongoing Labor, Replacement Parts
Benefits: Energy Savings, Tax Incentives, Etc.
22. Forecasting: Scenario Analysis Example
23. Forecasting: Scenario Comparison Example
24. Forecasting: Dont get caught fortune telling
New York Penal Law Section 165.35 Fortune Telling
165.35 Fortune telling. A person is guilty of fortune telling when, he claims or pretends to tell fortunes, or holds himself out as being able, by claimed or pretended use of occult powers, to answer questions or give advice on personal matters... Fortune telling is a class B misdemeanor.
25. Forecasting: Communicate Assumptions
Recognize that your forecasts will not be 100% accurate
Forecasts are models - not always precisely true but approximate
Make your degree of confidence in the data explicit
Make any assumptions explicit
Part of the consensus building during the planning process
The perfect is the enemy of the good
Voltaire
26. Influencing Organizational Behavior
27. Challenge 3: How do we change organizational behavior?
Influencing management policy (top down)
Influencing corporate culture (bottom up)
Educating and retraining the FM team
28. Influencing Behavior: Management
Speak dollars
Executive Management
I need to better manage my enterprise energy costs.
Every $100K lost to energy inefficiency is equivalent to losing $910K in new revenues
What if we tie it to their budgets?
Link space chargeback rates to environmental impacts
29. Influencing Behavior: Creating a Sustainable Organizational Culture
Encourage Personal Accountability
I want to show the buildings current performance in terms of energy and emissions. Its the occupants personal carbon footprint.
Make it fun!
What if we create a competition between buildings to see who could be most energy efficient?
30. Influencing Behavior: Educating and Retraining the FM Team
Make sustainability processes consistent
I want to know that assessment done in Buffalo is consistent with an assessment done in Vegas.
Automate reporting
Use notifications to keep everyone on the same page
31. Influencing Behavior: Using Technology
Create a Portal
Reports & Dashboards
Show Building Performance
Promote Building Certifications
Promote Projects/Initiatives
Notifications
Email alerts about sustainability efforts and achievements
32. Questions to Take Away
What environmental impacts do we care about?
Are we measuring them consistently over time?
Are we presenting solid business cases for sustainability projects?
How can we engage the entire organization in our efforts?
