          Abstract

          Globally, there is a growing trend among organisations towards promoting sustainability as an essential business strategy due to a high level of awareness about the impacts of their operations on the triple bottom line. This paper aims to examine the implementation of sustainability practices in an organisation focusing on universities. The objective was to determine sustainability adopted in facilities management (FM) practice concerning three different sustainability dimensions. Sixteen (16) interviews were conducted with the senior managerial level in selected universities. Among all dimensions, environmental sustainability was widely focused on having higher priorities for energy efficiency, waste reduction, and water conservation. These results provided some explanation and understanding of the overall picture of the study about organisational commitment towards sustainability in facilities management.
