When it comes to site management, the retail facilities management professional is positioned to have influence over everything from storm-water quantity control and heat-island reduction efforts to pest management, erosion control and parking lot maintenance, among others.
While these areas are often overshadowed by energy efficiency and water conservation, site management tactics that improve and protect local habitat, waste infrastructure and the water table are becoming increasingly important sustainability topics.
Sustainable Resource Center
To help you with these emerging trends, PRSM has created a tool, the PRSM Sustainability Resource Center, that includes best practices and emerging codes around sustainable sites and providing resources to explore strategies that will help vendors align their services to, and retailers understand areas of, sustainable leadership. The PRSM Sustainability Resource Center connects the retail community with strategic and tactical information, tools and templates across 40 recognized environmental focus areas so that effective programs and partnerships can be developed to integrate sustainability in to day to day retail operations.
Retail professionals today are faced with hundreds of technologies, tactics, policies and strategies. To help clear through the clutter, this planning guide will direct retail professionals looking to better understand what subject matters to focus on when it comes to sustainability.
