Derwent fm teams up with the SFMI

As part of its ongoing commitment to improving and embedding environmental sustainability across its business, Derwent Facilities Management has joined the Sustainable Facilities Management Index (SFMI).

Joining the SMFI builds on the work Derwent fm has already undertaken with its ISO 50001:2018 certification, which ensures DFM measure performance on energy management to drive continuous improvement.

Joining SFMI is the company’s next step on its continuous improvement journey and will help the business to embed sustainability into the management and operations of Derwent fm as well as benchmark itself against others in the industry.

Janice Boucher, Managing Director at Derwent fm said: “We are delighted to join the SFMI which will help us to embed sustainability as a golden thread throughout the business from senior managers to front line colleagues. The external assessments and benchmarking will inform continuous improvement plans which will have a significant impact on our sustainability strategy and help drive the success of the business.”

Sunil Shah, Managing Director of Acclaro Advisory and the SFMI commented: “Sustainable FM is fast becoming a key differentiator for discerning clients, due to its power to influence key environmental and social impacts. Joining the SFMI will enable Derwent fm to benchmark their performance against industry norms, as well as demonstrating commitment to transparency and continuous improvement along the SFMI Roadmap.

“We’re excited to understand and offer guidance into how sustainability is integrated into their service delivery, not just through operational impact but throughout the culture of the business and embedded throughout the value chain, from suppliers and ultimately as an integral part of services to their customers.”
