The fourth episode of our webinar series, ‘Navigating turbulent times’, was recorded live on Wednesday 13 May with hundreds of attendees hearing from our expert panel as they discussed ‘Net zero and sustainability in a post-COVID world’ and took viewers' questions.

Commentators tell us that COVID-19 will herald a ‘new normal’. What does the sustainability agenda look like in the post-pandemic era? What does this mean for our profession, and the industry that supports it?

Almost all facilities and office managers in the UK already take responsibility for sustainability (according to the Sustainability Survey 2018, two thirds of our members see it as extremely important to their role). Will the role of workplace and facilities be enhanced or diminished by this experience? These questions and more were covered during the hour-long episode.

Dialling in to the panel discussion with our host, Steve Gladwin (chair, International SIG), were: 

  • Ann Beavis: head of sustainable development, Crown Workspace
  • Greg Davies: chair, IWFM Sustainability SIG
  • Toby Morgan: LED program manager, The Climate Group
  • Pete Nisbet: director of energy, Mitie
