Because 80% of the real estate portfolio is already existing, technology has a big role to play to reduce carbon emission.
As a result of this, it is vital to use data to achieve sustainability goals. For example, by analysing energy consumption data with occupancy data, tenants and/or owners will gain great insights into how the buildings is being utilised, when it would be best to turn off cooling or heating systems and where to adopt smart lighting, enabling more informed decision making.
Sustainability goals and digitalisation need to be embedded into one seamless strategy to be more effective in the reduction of CO2 and work hand in hand.
Of course, in order to achieve a full decarbonisation of the workplaces, this is not the only action that companies have to take but it is definitely a good start!
