Each year, business sustainability teams embark on a months-long process to collect and report their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) data. Many organizations run their annual carbon accounting and ESG ratings calculation process with spreadsheets, which leads to enhanced risk and productivity loss – especially for complex, global organizations that report to multiple frameworks.
Sustainability is quickly becoming a central focus for large, public institutions. In order to remain competitive and attract investors, executive management teams are increasing focus on their ESG disclosures, and reviewing strategies to reduce carbon emissions and respond to climate change.
Environmental, social, and governance performance is finally reaching prominence in corporate and public life.
Too often and too long a peripheral concern of corporate executive teams and boards, the tide turned earlier this year when CEO and Founder of Blackrock, Larry Fink, announced in his annual letter to CEOs that BlackRock would “place sustainability at the center of how we invest.” His announcement signaled a fundamental shift in capital markets, and along with it an end to the days...
Increases in computer-processing power, cloud-storage capacity and usage, network connectivity, and the rise in internet of things enabled devices are turning the flood of data in most companies into a tidal wave – an endless flow of information. The data arrive in all formats and from a range of sources. Companies are expanding their data-management infrastructures massively and quickly.

You may read or hear whispers that commercial buildings can be onboarded with building analytics software in a matter of hours. Now, let's hold that notion up to the light and examine it. The notion of "onboarded" implies some useful deliverable to the building owner. Can you do a BACnet "Who Is" and quickly establish connectivity to points - maybe even map those points? Sure you can. But then what?
Envizi was excited to attend this year’s AHR Expo in Orlando. AHR expo is the world's largest HVACR conference, bringing together over 70,000 professional OEMs, engineers, contractors, facility operators, architects, educators and others to explore the latest trends.
2019 will go down as the year the world announced a clear intent to move to a low-carbon economy. In 2020 governments, institutions and businesses will have to address how they manage this transition in order to ensure the long-term sustainability of their businesses.
One of the key functions of sustainability reporting software like Envizi is to calculate emissions. To do so, we are guided by The Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol) as it is the most widely used international accounting tool for government and business leaders to understand, quantify, and manage greenhouse gas emissions. For organizations aiming for Net Zero, understanding how to account for reduced emissions from green power purchases is essential.
Envizi was proud to be a sponsor of CoRE TECH held in Silicon Valley on 13 -15 November. Celebrating CoRE TECH’s 10th anniversary, this event attracted proactive, visionary and innovative Corporate Real Estate and Facilities executives and thought leaders under one roof.
