Green Products

Gradually but definitely, companies outsourcing their facilities requirements are increasingly asking service providers tough questions on environment sustainability. Increasingly these are cropping up as conditions in RFPs. Forward thinking organizations realise the benefits they bring to their immediate environment by pushing their vendors to use green products, which have the additional advantage of cost savings both in the short and long term.

FM companies are grappling with the new paradigm. India still has a primitive institutional framework that certifies vendor’s green processes, and products. 

However, organizations such as Green Seal – a US based non profit entity – are paving the way in building standards globally as well as in India. Everything that Property Management companies need to know about green products, their cost benefits, availability can be found out in their website

We hope business imperatives go hand in hand with environmental concerns; and customers along with their partners follow standards in letter as well as in spirit.
