Nice article in BOM Magazine on Resilience and Sustainability

Posted by on Jun 30, 2017

Greg Zimmerman, the executive editor of Building Operating Management (BOM) magazine, wrote a great cover story on the relationship between resilience and sustainability for the July issue of BOM. The print article, “To Focus on Resilience, Focus Also on Sustainability,” will be out in early July, but it is available online now.

It’s great to see this argument being made by others—that resilience and sustainability go hand-in-hand. It’s not an either-or situation. Here’s an excerpt from Greg’s article:

“By focusing on sustainability and resilience in tandem, facility managers have the ability to address two parts of one of the more nefarious climate feedback loops: The more energy required to cool buildings, the more greenhouse gases are released to the atmosphere. And the more greenhouse gases, the more heat gets trapped in the atmosphere, and the more energy required to cool buildings.”

  1. Good to see this being taken seriously. I passed this article on and your own web address to my sister who is a facilities manager in Ottawa, Canada.
