Sustainably driving business value

Over the next few years and decades, the real estate sector faces a challenge that will reshape the industry. In order to become profitable, it must become sustainable.

The 2050 “red-green line”

The real estate sector has the largest ecological footprint and according to the World Green Building Council and in order to comply with the Paris Climate Agreement, new buildings’ operations must be carbon-neutral by 2030 and, by 2050, all buildings will need to be carbon-neutral. In other words, carbon emissions will massively impact profitability and exponentially increase stranded asset risks.

From emissions management to strategic carbon risk scenario analysis

The BuildingMinds solution addresses the core issues for the real estate sector: transparency of carbon emissions, resource efficiency and future-proofing buildings against climate risk and the requirements of the global green economy. By gathering all necessary data, democratizing and storing them in a single, centralized platform, real estate managers are empowered to develop effective decarbonization strategies.

Various management cockpits enable to analyze building resource performance and to identify efficiency opportunities in terms of environmental performance. All information on resource consumption and carbon emissions is accessible on an aggregated portfolio-level down to individual buildings.

Resource consumption

The BuildingMinds solution allows detailed multi-level data analysis and visualization for energy, water, waste and refrigerants including the breakdown into different energy sources like electricity, natural gas, district heating or solar energy. Automated meter readings/IoT-systems can be integrated with near-real time analysis.

Operational Carbon Footprint

The BuildingMinds solution provides automated calculation and interactive visualization of emissions from different energy sources and fugitive emissions in CO2-equivalents according to industry standards. Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions according to Greenhouse Gas Protocol can be separated and reported.

Carbon risk analysis

The BuildingMinds solution unfolds benchmarking of building energy and carbon intensity against country and building type-specific CRREM targets based on Paris climate targets and user-defined target-setting. Building performance development can be monitored over time based on energy mix, predicted consumption and the evolving share of renewables in electricity generation. Finally, real estate managers can identify stranded assets, their share within portfolios and carbon penalty risk thanks to the simulation of various scenarios from carbon pricing to retrofitting and modernization impact.

The real estate footprint and its future

Calculating carbon risk

The weal and woe of sustainability certificates

This industry has the largest ecological footprint – new buildings must be carbon-neutral by 2030 and, by 2050, all buildings will need to be carbon-neutral. Over the next few years and decades, the real estate sector faces a challenge that will reshape the industry: It must become sustainable to remain profitable.

Carbon emissions will massively impact profitability and exponentially increase stranded asset risks. Carbon emission calculations will make just a fraction. Protracted retrofits, government fees and penalties will affect marketability of buildings and finally their value.

There are now more than 50 certificates worldwide resulting in a highly fragmented certificate, KPI and reporting landscape of real estate companies. The real estate industry needs to think holistically and integrate all aspects over the entire value chain and lifecycle.
