For facility managers, the all-encompassing nature of the work makes it an excellent “how to” guide for sustainable practice. The text’s emphasis on the practical operational aspects of sustainable facility management also makes it well suited to deliver the instruction necessary for the operational course in a package of offerings for a certificate in sustainable management. The book contains topics that are absolutely essential for sustainable facilities, some of which are not covered in any other textbook.
