The Influence of Sustainability and Green Management Concepts on Educational Facility Performance in Nigeria

The Influence of Sustainability and Green Management Concepts on Educational Facility Performance... AbstractThis paper investigates the impact of sustainable development and green management on the performance of an educational facility with a view of enhancing the learning environment and increasing students’ achievement in Nigeria. A sequential examination of the benefits of green features and barriers in their adoption was carried out.The data for the study relied on a study sample of 400 respondents comprising university teachers, “in-resident” building professionals and postgraduate students of a built environment selected from four renowned universities in the south-west region of Nigeria. An ideation framework was constructed and multilevel analysis performed to evaluate perceptions on associated factors alongside the variable items.The low recognition of basic green benefits by the respondents was, to some extent, the result of unfamiliarity with the discussed concepts. In view of barrier factors deterring the implementation of concepts, the lack of government intervention, unavailability of formulated policies, lack of inclusion of the sustainability concept in the school curricula, and unavailability of capacity training for professionals in the building industry, were perceived to be the prime factors.The paper concludes that all stakeholders have cogent roles to play at an individual level when it comes to eliminating barriers, initiating concepts, and realizing the desired facility performance capable of ensuring a sustainable learning environment as well as promoting academic excellence in the Nigerian educational sector. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Real Estate Management and Valuation de Gruyter
