ConnexFM, the multi-site facilities management network, is proud to announce a new task force focusing on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG). The task force will address how ESG impacts the multi-site facilities industry, what resources are available and should be created, and recommendations on how individuals and organizations should address the ESG needs on the horizon.   


“Our Multi-Site FM members are increasingly being asked to report on ESG initiatives and depend on their Supplier Partners to meet their goals,” said Bill Yanek, CEO, ConnexFM. “This task force will develop resources and educational opportunities, providing members a competitive advantage and empowering the FM, with support from their partner organizations, to demonstrate to the C-Suite how facilities management contributes to the organization’s ESG initiatives.”   


Leading the task force will be Joshua D. Witte, Director, Energy and Sustainability, Dollar Tree, Inc. and Tom Kay, Chief Revenue Officer, SMG Facilities and ConnexFM Board of Director.  


“ESG is becoming one of the most important topics at the corporate level. Shareholders want to know it is integral to the operations of the companies they are investing in, and executives want to know they have a team in place that can execute on these initiatives,” said Witte. “Multi-Site FMs will be at the forefront of these effortsConnexFM and the newly formed ESG Task Force will be well placed to offer the support and resources needed by the FMs who will be playing a role in shaping the future of these initiatives.” 


Kay will be presenting, ESG 101: Understanding ESG and Its Impact, at ConnexFM | 2022 National Conference on Monday, April 25. “ESG is fast becoming a corporate duty and social responsibility. Facility Professionals - now more than ever - have the ability to effect positive change by carefully aligning their roles and responsibilities with their corporate initiatives,” said Kay. “I believe that the ConnexFM ESG Taskforce has a unique opportunity to shape the ESG narrative and those who choose to get involved will play a critical part in the education, growth and development of the facility professional, the supplier community and the association as a whole.”
