FM frequency: It's not easy being green(er)
Today's Facility Manager
Being green has not been smooth sailing for sentinels of sustainability. From LEED certifications to Zero Waste initiatives, adoption is not always foolproof. While the facility managers (fms) and architects understand the task at hand, there seems to be a disconnect when John Q. Public gets involved.
