The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) is the premier professional association for facility management – the integration of people, place, process and technology. Representing the largest community of FM professionals on the planet, IFMA membership embraces 20,000 facility professionals worldwide. Its members have a voice in 130 chapters and 17 councils in 67 different countries.

IFMA Atlanta is one of IFMA’s largest chapters with over 500 members. The sustainability committee of the chapter is committed to educating its members and the facility management field in sustainable practices. This is done through the promotion of IFMA’s Sustainability Facility Professional Credential Program, distribution of Georgia sustainability information, and participation in local education events.

Because there is a strong interest in facility management education as it relates to sustainability and the implementation of energy saving techniques, IFMA produced an on-going series of white papers (or “guides”) to respond to this need for information. These guides are intended to provide data and information associated with a wide range of subjects related to sustainability.

They are free and available to the public. Click here to access the guides:
