New Sustainability Facility Professional Credential

The International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has introduced its newest credential, the Sustainability Facility Professional (SFP). 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, says IFMA.

Professionals can earn the new designation through the SFP Credential Program, which offers complete training and assessment materials in three course areas: 1) Strategy and Alignment for Sustainable Facility Management, 2) Managing Sustainable Facilities and 3) 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.

The SFP Credential Program features comprehensive training available in self-study or instructor-led classroom format. For more information, visit the IFMA SFP website.
