Optimizing Energy Management and Sustainability within a post COVID-19 Environment

The Covid-19 Pandemic has had an enormous impact on how businesses and industry function, both short term and long term. Actions taken to mitigate the pandemic impact range from temporary to permanent in length and minor to major in scope, cost and consequence.

The rapidly evolving and changing needs for facilities, services and office environments has required real estate and facilities management organizations to quickly adapt in order to efficiently and effectively serve the enterprise needs.

Energy Management and Sustainability are key functions within facilities management that are at the core of successful adaptation to the new business model and operating environment. The ability to optimize these functions is critical due to the direct and significant impact on employee health, safety and productivity as well as operational reliability, cost management and service responsiveness.

This presentation addresses how to evaluate, analyze and implement plans, policies and actions that drive optimized operating performance. We will share our process driven approach that ensures key issues are addressed, and strategies and plans remain flexible, optimized and relevant.
