Building managers can now use a single digital dashboard to assess carbon footprints, set targets, and manage and track emissions by deploying Johnson Controls’ OpenBlue Net Zero Advisor.
OpenBlue Net Zero Advisor uses digitally automated data collection and analytics to manage and track scope 1 and 2 emissions and assist building owners in reporting for certification and compliance frameworks. Organisations can manage single-building emissions targets worldwide and aggregate global building data to optimise buildings and support reporting on enterprise-wide climate targets.
Building owners are being asked to provide reliable emissions reporting as regulators seek proof of net zero progress. It is increasingly important to assess, set targets, track, and manage carbon footprints for building certification, environmental reporting, and financial regulation. Disparate data sources and local conditions complicate data collection, analysis and operationalisation.
OpenBlue Net Zero Advisor provides an all-in-one tool for carbon footprint assessment, target setting, emissions management, and tracking. In addition, it aggregates data across a global building portfolio to deliver insights on reducing building emissions and assist in accurate and transparent global reporting while saving the time and money normally spent on complicated calculations and spreadsheets.
Net Zero Advisor aggregates and analyses data across a global portfolio of buildings to provide enterprise-wide carbon footprint transparency. Building owners can assign measurable targets for each building’s energy use, emissions, and emissions intensity and then manage and summarise climate progress over time.
Vijay Sankaran, Chief Technology Officer at Johnson Controls, says: “Given the urgency of climate action, and the fact that buildings contribute nearly 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions, businesses across the globe will be seeking to reduce and report on emissions for buildings they own or occupy. The Johnson Controls OpenBlue Net Zero Advisor offers an easy, all-in-one tool for managing emissions while saving time, effort, and money. “
