ESD Operations Guide for Owners, Managers and Tenants

A guide to help building owners, managers and tenants to operate buildings more sustainably

20 Jul 2008

 

The Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts has released a guide to help building owners, managers and tenants to operate buildings more sustainably.

The publication introduces the key environmental issues relevant to operating existing buildings. Importantly, the guide covers the opportunities available to owners, managers and tenants for better environmental performance, and how they can collaborate on common objectives. Facility managers have a particularly important role to play here, and the guide outlines (particularly through detailed case studies) the value of owners and tenants investing in skilled and effective facilities management services.

The guide uses examples from the private and public sector to show what has already been achieved in the Australian marketplace on issues including energy, greenhouse, water, waste, indoor environment quality, transport, materials, and land use.

This guide is the product of a partnership between the Australian Government, the New South Wales Government, and key industry associations, including FMA and AIRAH (both of which AE Smith is a member organisation).
