Leading a Sustainable Future in Facility Management: Dikago paves the way for Botswana
Published on : March 1, 2024

Dikago Facilities Solutions (DFS) has long been known for its commitment to creating optimal work environments, but now they’re taking their expertise a step further by becoming a leader in sustainable facility management in Botswana. This exciting shift not only benefits the environment but also aligns with the growing demand for responsible business practices, making DFS a true partner for forward-thinking institutions.

Why Sustainability Matters in Facility Management:

The way we manage our facilities has a significant impact on the environment. Buildings consume vast amounts of energy and water, generate waste, and contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. By adopting sustainable practices, DFS can:

Reduce energy consumption: This can be achieved through various methods, such as installing energy-efficient lighting and equipment, optimizing HVAC systems, and utilizing renewable energy sources like solar panels.
Conserve water: Implementing water-saving fixtures, utilizing rainwater harvesting, and promoting mindful water usage practices can make a significant difference.
Minimize waste: Diverting waste from landfills through recycling, composting, and responsible procurement choices lowers environmental impact.
Improve indoor air quality: Utilizing green cleaning products, maintaining proper ventilation, and minimizing the use of harmful chemicals creates a healthier environment for occupants.
DFS: Leading the Way:

DFS is actively incorporating sustainability into its core operations through various initiatives:

Partnership with Green Building Council Botswana: Collaborating to promote sustainable building practices and raise awareness within the industry.
Investment in Energy Audits: Identifying areas for improvement and implementing efficiency measures to reduce energy consumption.
Green Cleaning Program: Using eco-friendly cleaning products and practices that are safer for both the environment and human health.
Waste Management Solutions: Implementing recycling programs, partnering with waste recovery companies, and minimizing waste generation.
Employee Engagement: Educating employees about sustainable practices and encouraging their participation in initiatives.
These efforts are not just symbolic gestures; they have a tangible impact. By adopting sustainable practices, DFS has already:

Reduced energy consumption by 15% in managed facilities.
Diverted 20% of waste from landfills through recycling and composting.
Switched to green cleaning products in all facilities, improving indoor air quality for occupants.
The Future of Sustainable Facility Management in Botswana:

DFS’s commitment to sustainability sets a positive example for other facility management companies in Botswana. As the world increasingly grapples with environmental challenges, sustainable practices are becoming essential, not just for the environment, but also for responsible business practices and attracting environmentally conscious clients.

By leading the way in sustainable facility management, DFS is not only contributing to a greener future for Botswana but also demonstrating its commitment to being a responsible and forward-thinking partner for the institutions it serves.
