2022 Component Holiday Giveaway

IFMA is giving you the opportunity to make one of your member's sustainability wishes come true this season!

1 FREE SFP for your component

Each chapter, council and community can receive one Sustainability Facility Professional® (SFP®) Credential program to give to one of the component's members. Packed with the latest insights and best practices, this credential program is designed to help FMs meet the evolving demands of environmental responsibility.

You have until January 31, 2023*, to award the SFP to one member. Once enrolled, they will have 12 months to complete the credential program and earn the SFP credential. 

Strategy meets implementation with the updated SFP

The SFP program contains 12 chapters divided into 3 units

Unit 1


Unit 2

Analyzing Sustainable Solutions

Unit 3

Making Sustainable Change

What to expect:

Each unit includes a student guide and e-Learning which work in tandem with each other, progress check questions, flashcards and FM glossary. 


Explore and analyze several real-life examples and case studies before taking the final assessment for each chapter (12 total assessments). 

Learn key strategies and tactics such as improving operational efficiencies, energy purchasing and consumption, and emerging trends like ESG and circular economy. 

Pay it forward

IFMA knows the world needs facility managers to take charge of sustainability, and we want you to lead the way with your component. The construction and building sectors are responsible for 33 percent of global resource consumption and 40 percent of global waste.1 With much to be done to make operations more sustainable, facility professionals are front-and-center in the shift to a healthier planet. 

Create lasting change for the world by empowering a new sustainability champion for your component. 

This is a defining moment for FMs. You are positioned to lead the way to a sustainable built environment.

Select a person who will champion this cause on behalf of your component, bringing back strategies and tactics to impact all of your members. 

Who should you select?

The individual must have a reasonable foundation of core facility management, such as these areas covered in the FMP®: 

  • Operations + Maintenance 

  • Finance + Business 

  • Leadership + Strategy 

  • Project Management  

There can only be one

Each component will be given one free SFP program. Any member in good standing is eligible, but they cannot be a current SFP holder.
