The Sustainable Facilities Management Index (SFMI) is a purpose-driven initiative setup by Acclaro Advisory in 2012, with the aim to embed sustainability into the management and operation of the FM sector.

Through our annual reports, social media and speaking opportunities, The SFMI has always advocated that the FM sector should be a torchbearer for sustainability. Now, in the backdrop of climate emergencies, fast and flexible action on COVID19 responses, and the FM sector’s exposure to a large employee base which can build social mobilisation and development, these forces are converging to raise the profile of the FM sector to becoming an ambassador of sustainability.

Our Client Partners

Our Client Partners are companies who support the SFMI as FM users who understand the importance of sustainability in the FM sector to support their own organisations goals.

Recommending the SFMI as a pathway to improve sustainability for their providers, they use The SFMI Leaders’ Forum to engage in what sustainable FM should look like and contribute opinions to our thought leadership reports. They engage with other client and FM partners to share best practice and learn new solutions to sustainability in the built environment.

Benefits of being a Partner

  • Attend our SFMI Leaders’ Forum, which brings sustainable FM professionals together to discuss issues such as sustainable procurement in FM, Scope 3 challenges, and the use of Technology in FM.
  • Contribute to thought leadership content for SFMI reports that showcase the future of FM and its role
  • Gain exposure for your team and organisation by helping drive the FM industry to operate and manage sustainability.

Generating demand is crucial for the sector to overcome challenges to development in sustainability, including:

  • Financial
  • Brand image of the FM sector
  • Younger talent acquisition
  • Technological improvements

Each of these challenges are interlinked and can be solved through education, up-skilling the sector in ESG issues, offering a sustainability roadmap, and celebrating the successes of the FM sector – which is where our Client Partners can add value.
