The built environment is a significant contributor to global CO2 emissions. Cement and construction alone add up to around 25% of human-caused greenhouse emissions. Add air-conditioning, lighting, water use and other aspects that power buildings and you can see that we have a problem.
If you’re a company that wants to grow in 2022, chances are that becoming more environmentally-friendly is one your key goals. Technology can support this goal to a great extent. Here is how:
-Make your workplace smart: add sensors to enable automatic energy saving by turning off the air-conditioning or the lights in a room that is empty.
-Add smart windows that keep your space at the ideal temperature. If you want to learn more about this technology, you can click here.
-LED lamps! Did you know that many traditional lighting sources like incandescent bulbs turn more than 90% of the energy they use to heat, allocating only 10% of energy to actual light production?
