TEFMA forming closer links to Universities Australia Federally – increase student enrolments from lower socio- economic areas and 45% Aussies to have an UG degree by 2020/5 International students continue to be a growth area, but recent community incidents having an impact EIF (less on backlog funding!!) Australia’s GFC related stimulus package has impacted HE Sector Issues
Opportunities to provide sector wide data with some credible basis, e.g. Environmental performance (energy, water carbon) Space Management – improve utilisation Backlog liabilities Security Incidents Planning to expand the range of data and further validate methodology used HE Sector Issues

TEFMA Benchmark Aust 2 nd after US on CO 2 emission per capita Buildings will account for 18% of Australia’s greenhouse emissions in reported by Climate works Australia Looking to expand on our existing benchmarks, and align with NGERS – 100Tj and 125K t CO 2 -e – sliding scale going forward* Looking at potential to create a ‘sustainability star rating’ in the Good Universities Guide * NGER - National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting Sustainability
Campus sustainability is more than the operational activities and services managed by Facilities and Services. Consequently, the proposed scorecard will measure, not only the carbon emissions, water consumption and waste/recycling, it will: Weigh the governance and policy infrastructure established to support a sustainable approach Engagement with the community, including collaborations with students and academics. Funding in environmental programs/initiatives Sustainability Scorecard Objectives
Staff and student awareness/education programs/initiatives Broader environmental management issues, such as ecological protection (bio diversity); landscape design; well being programs promoting alternative transport; “competitions” to promote campus sustainability; engagement in community events (such as Clean up Australia Day and Earth Hour) Sustainability Scorecard Objectives
The key focus for the TEFMA board in 2011 will be to embed the opportunities for improvement by: ◦putting in place a place a sustainable administrative & financial support thus allowing the board to get out of the boiler room and focus on the strategic issues facing FM in the sector. ◦improved delivery of services the membership. (building on the new web environment) ◦continuing to strengthen the Benchmark survey with the addition of appropriate sustainability measures. ◦through greater participation in industry advisory panels. ◦enhancing collaboration with our strategic partners.
