The concept ‘Sustainable Development was popularized in 1987 with experts defining it as a way for present generations to meet their needs without compromising the needs of future generations. For us, being in the FM industry for years, we play an important role in raising awareness about factors such as innovations and technologies that would transform the sector. Learning, understanding, and building sustainable development principles, are bound to help the industry grow and transform excellently. Hence, as our top priority, we have been organising seminars and conferences to help the FM industry adopt best sustainable practices across its operations.“
