    ESG is at the heart of the property industry across design, build and operations, and with everyone now watching the thermostat - never before has there been such a focus to ensure homes and office buildings, including warehouses are energy efficient and bills are as low as possible. Building operations, heating, cooling, lighting, alone contributes 28% of global emissions. Sustainable technology is driving device-to-device connectivity, and the opportunity lies in the synchronization of different devices to work simultaneously for efficiency gains.

    Growth vs. degrowth - the sustainability challenge

    Whilst we understand that sustainability is an extremely important issue, humans are notoriously slow to adopt to change, and this is disruptive change that is moving at a rapid pace with urgency.

A cost that impacts the profitability of the organisation, as a result there can be a perceived level of reluctance/scepticism in adopting a sustainable approach.

    Charging ahead: what does the future hold for sustainable mobility with electric vehicles?

    A new EU vote in February 2023 confirmed a 2035 ban on the sale of new fossil fuel vehicles. The transition towards electric vehicles will require adjustments and many questions remain around availability, raw material supply, battery cost and lifespan as well as the infrastructure needed to support EV adoption. We hear about incentives and strategies employed in countries that have made significant progress, like Norway where more than 80% of new cars purchased are electric, and examine the challenges ahead.
