Webinar: 2020-2050: Counting down to net zero-carbon

All organisations have immediate energy management concerns - but with the government wanting organisations to generate net zero carbon emissions by the year 2050, how should organisations go about preparing a longer-term roadmap for the decarbonisation of their activities? In 2020, and with the thirty years to 2050 in mind, what does it take to run a truly sustainable estate?

This webinar, delivered in partnership with Centrica Business Solutions, will consider how those managing energy for their organisations can develop an energy management framework relevant to a 2050 time horizon.

This webinar’s three speakers will discuss:

  • How to define and prioritise future energy projects (distributed renewable energy, local energy networks, EV infrastructure, and energy efficiency)
  • How to establish which projects demand major capital expenditure and which require the optimisation of existing practice / equipment
  • Who to partner with to ensure each project achieves its goal
  • With heat being one of the most difficult parts to decarbonise, what technologies, products and services should be deployed to address this?
  • What lessons have we learnt over recent years that can help organisations with their decarbonisation challenge?

With carbon emission reductions as their focus, the speakers will consider how energy can be created, procured and deployed in fresh ways to cut carbon emissions or generate fresh revenue streams.

Webinar: The changing habits of the corporate worker - the office as home from home

As organisations seek to bolster their appeal to employees in an increasingly competitive market for new recruits, there’s an increasing role for the workplace in providing for employees’ personal purposes.

But there are challenges, too. As well as managing the provision of services as varied as tailoring, dry cleaning, parcel delivery, shoe repairs, haircuts or takeaways delivered to the desk, workplace managers are catering for staff no longer tied to fixed desks yet increasingly empowered to see their place of work, not their homes, as the destination for personal deliveries.

All of which poses the question - how far can this quasi-concierge capability go? And what duty of care is required of the workplace and facilities managers overseeing their provision?

This webinar, presented in association with Neopost (soon to be Quadient) considers the security, compliance and technology considerations that people managing the workplace have to consider.

Three experts will share their experiences of dealing with this growing phenomenon, discussing the connections between space and service provision that need to be managed.

Webinar: Extending FM contract terms – will clients always win? 23/10/2012

A webinar brought to you by FM World and Supply Management sponsored by Office Depot.

It's often said that if only contractors were allowed more than the typical three years in which to hone their delivery of service, all would be right in the FM outsourcing world. But is this really the case? Would longer contract terms mean a) stronger engagement and investment by the FM contractor, and b) a better level of service delivery to the client? 

The discussion focused on the following points:

  • • What is the optimum term length for facilities management contracts?
  • • Is there a conflict between procurement's desire for financial competitiveness and FM's desire for consistency of delivery?
  • • What are the potential disadvantages of extended term lengths?
  • • Is the fight for longer term lengths masking issues of inadequate management / service benchmarking by the client?
