Green and Sustainable Trends | 2012

 
Green and Sustainable Trends | 2012

As facility managers and building owners plunge into the New Year, green and sustainable trends can be analyzed to help lay out an effective plan for 2012.  Even if you’re not planning sustainable redesigns or developments for your properties this year, it can be valuable to keep up with the green world.  Stephen Ashkin, CEO of Sustainable Dashboard Tools, LLC, and President of The Ashkin Group, brings his top ten green and sustainable trends to the table:

1.      It’s the economy.  The economy will continue to be the focus, but many organizations will slowly start hiring and expanding.  While conditions won’t return to pre-recession levels, it will be a good year for jansan companies.

2.       LEED shakes up the market.  The new LEED revisions will be introduced in early 2012 and the improvements will accelerate its adoption.  As facilities seek help understanding the changes, many jansan companies will find this as a competitive opportunity and grow customers.

3.       Energy is king.  The cost of energy will increase in 2012.  Jansan distributors and service providers will develop strategies to help facilities reduce energy consumption.

4.       Water conservation.  Water will emerge as a critical issue that we must address and take seriously.

5.       Green as a given.  Facility managers/cleaning professionals will select green cleaning products first and conventional cleaning products only if green ones are not available.

6.      Measuring sustainability.  As facilities and businesses increasingly operate in a more sustainable manner, they will turn to “dashboard” systems to help measure, manage, and report progress.

7.      Proof of sustainability. Purchasing departments requiring vendors to document how they address sustainability issues within their own businesses will become more commonplace.

8.      Ingredient disclosure.  Chemical manufacturers will provide more information on the ingredients used to manufacture their products as more purchasers and consumers demand this information.

9.      Collaboration. Instead of doing it alone more jansan distributors and service providers will collaborate, creating solutions for environmental issues that will eventually help the entire industry.

10.      Showing how.  More facilities and businesses will establish Green and sustainability policies, but will have trouble putting them into practice. Jansan distributors and service providers will play a key role in showing them how.
