Abstract: Over the years, awareness has increased on the negative effects that human activity has on the environment. It has become evident that human activities cannot continue as usual and it has become imperative that government and private organisations and individuals “meet their present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs - a concept known as sustainability. There are few studies if any that assess whether or not the practice of facilities management in Ghana is sustainable and why. This study therefore explores how the principles of sustainability applied in the practice of facilities management in Ghana? The aim of this research was to assess how the concept of sustainability has been applied in the practice of facilities management in Ghana using the case of Broll Ghana Limited using. Grounded on literature,a questionnaire survey was conducted among facility officers of Broll Ghana who were purposively selected to for information pertaining to the study. The study concludes that although there are certain sustainable principles that are practiced with regard to Facilities management in Broll Ghana, it cannot be said that the practice is entirely sustainable due to a lack of knowledge of the concept and client influence on decision-making. Consequently, the study recommends that Broll Ghana Limited develops a sustainability agenda which should include knowledge and awareness creation amongst relevant stakeholders as well as training.
