The primary reasons for outsourcing real estate and facilities management are to reduce costs and access special skills and technology.
During the past several years, integrated facilities management outsourcers have rapidly gained experience with sustainability initiatives, adding hundreds of accredited professionals in the process. Their experience qualifying buildings for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), Green Star and similar certification programs is hard to match.
Smart organizations can tap this brain trust and negotiate sustainability into outsourcing agreements at little to no additional cost.
