Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine if the target set by Singapore’s Inter-Ministerial Committee for Sustainable Development to have 80% of the buildings at least Green Mark certified by 2030 has any impact on raising the profession, perception and prospection (3Ps) of Sustainable Facilities Management (SFM) in Singapore. The objectives are to understand the tertiary students’ choice of study, determine the core knowledge for SFM, compare the pre-existing 3Ps of Tertiary Students (TS) and FM Practitioners (FMP), propose academic programs, measure the industry support to the proposed academic programs and skill sets and recommend marketing strategies to attract TS to the profession. The results from two surveys (one aimed at TS and the other to FMP) concurred that the target set by the IMCSD has an impact on raising the 3Ps of SFM in Singapore. The analysis further revealed that there were some differing views between TS and FMP on the 3Ps of SFM. Nonetheless, both respondents agreed that government played a pivotal role in generating greater awareness and recognition of SFM professions through effective marketing strategies to attract TS to the industry.
