Since the implementation of the Kyoto Agreement in 2005 the government are obliged to reduce the country’s carbon footprint. New builds and existing buildings all need to use technology and innovation in order to achieve the reduction in greenhouse gases. At the same time organisations must change the behaviour of the workforce and increase awareness of sustainability issues amongst their staff.

Businesses in the FM sector have been through a tough time during the recent recession with down-sizing and divestiture of divisions/services. Specialist companies are springing up to serve niche markets and there is a lot of turbulence with acquisitions and mergers in the industry.

We want to help you with your internal communications to motivate behavioural change in your staff as well so that everyone is pulling in the same direction for the good of the company and the good of the planet.
