Global FM was established on 17 May 2006 by the coming together of the leading Facility Management Associations of the day to collaborate and further their common objectives.

Global FM is an International community, its stated objectives was to operate as a single, united entity promoting Facility Management and as a conduit for furthering the knowledge and understanding of FM.

Its stated intents are:

  • To encourage greater collaboration between facility managementcommunities.
  • To utilizethe diverse cultures and strengths of each member organization to enhance the skills and knowledge of their members.
  • To promote knowledge, standards and education in the FM profession. Using one voice, collaborate on the development and means to share the practices and recognition of facility management.

It originally identified 6 ‘hot topics’ that were agreed would benefit from collaborate effort across all member associations, they are:

  • Sustainability
  • Innovation
  • Education and Training
  • Risk Management
  • Facilities Management – now and in the future
  • Economy and Cultures across borders

As can be seen, the topics that were originally considered as being appropriate to the sector and which could be better developed and promoted in collaboration of the member association are as relevant today as they were in 2006.
