The International Facility Management Association has announced its newest credential, the Sustainability Facility Professional™. More than a building certification and rating system, the SFP™ will help facility professionals play a key leadership role in creating, managing, and operating sustainable facilities by giving them the skills they need to impact their organizations’ economic, environmental, and social bottom lines. Professionals can earn the new designation through the SFP Credential Program™, which offers complete training and assessment materials in three course areas: Strategy and Alignment for Sustainable Facility Management, Managing Sustainable Facilities, and Operating Sustainable Facilities. Taken together, these courses provide a complete picture of how SFPs can improve the sustainability of their facilities in the eight major categories of sustainability defined by IFMA: energy, water, materials and resources, workplace management, indoor environmental quality, quality of services, waste, and site impact.
In the newly created position, Badoian-Kriticos will support the implementation of a variety of strategic and tactical sustainability initiatives throughout IFMA and help define, develop, and drive sustainability concepts internally and externally.
