Integrate facilities management and IT to reduce energy and operating costs
IBM recently published a white paper that was compiled by TRIRIGA and Gartner called "Crossing the sustainability chasm: strategies and tactics to achieve sustainability goals" that covers the primary findings from the Sustainable Asset Management Survey conducted by the companies. The survey questions covered all aspects of energy and environmental programs, with an emphasis on how facilities and technology contribute to meeting sustainability goals. The study found that while ninety-two percent of organisations have established environmental sustainability and energy performance goals, only a third have "crossed the sustainability chasm" and actually achieved their sustainability objectives. Register for the replay of the webcast here.
