Transform with technology: Sustainable buildings and places

Automation and analytics driving sustainable building operations

August 25, 2021

Managing energy performance within buildings is key to meeting carbon neutrality commitments as investors, landlords, tenants and governments and even just regular people increasingly demand lower-carbon, more resilient buildings and cities. Technology is helping to make this a reality via improved energy performance and emissions tracking and more-efficient or new-energy systems. Technology has also enabled the ability to combine environmental and facilities performance data with advanced analytics and modeling to automate processes and achieve higher utility. For example, architectural software helps designers select the lowest-carbon options, while digital twins can simulate a building’s full-life carbon performance and feed it back into the structure’s design.

Sustainable buildings & places

Key considerations
  • Examine a building or portfolio with the path to net zero carbon in mind, which will help you more easily decide which solutions will support your journey.
  • Understand your current energy use and emissions to help track of progress toward your sustainability commitments and goals.
  • Create integrated, standardized performance and utility metrics portfolio-wide to track, manage and report progress in real time.
  • Consider adopting the latest design and construction processes, which are key to achieving emissions goals and creating more resilient buildings.
