BAM’s integrated facilities management business gains platinum sustainability award

The Sustainable Facilities Management Index (SFMI) annual assessment has graded BAM’s integrated facilities management business as Platinum for the first time. Platinum is the highest level achievable.


The SFMI evaluates the environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance of FM service providers. It is the only sustainability benchmark for the UK FM sector. 

In its annual assessment, SFMI compares the sustainability commitment of FM enterprises. ESG (environment, social and governance) are the three key subjects it considers. 

The best businesses prioritise sustainability as a key factor in their operations and implement a consistent, successful strategy.

The platinum award reflects BAM’s accomplishments in establishing a sustainable organisational culture.

Abbe Pickthall, Managing Director, commented:

“We are tremendously happy to have achieved a platinum award, a first for our business. Achieving the SFMI platinum standard places us amongst the leading companies delivering sustainable integrated services in the UK and reflects BAM’s commitment to the lifecycle of the built environment. Today is a celebration of that approach and something we can all be extremely proud of”. 

Recently BAM’s integrated FM business assisted The Sustainable Facilities Management Index (SFMI), and other contractors in developing a tool for managing Scope 3 carbon emissions in the FM sector.  BAM sponsored the initial Scope 3 Framework to develop a solution to collect, aggregate and analyse complex Scope 3 data and move another step closer to positioning the FM industry at the heart of the decarbonisation pathway for the built environment. 

In the past few weeks BAM set some of the most challenging net zero carbon targets across its whole range of operations.

BAM is also assisting clients with sustainable energy advice and by installing EV charging schemes.
