The Net Zero Carbon Delusion

Over the past 12 months we have been inundated with Net Zero Carbon commitments. Before I get into why I think this is partly delusional, I want to take a moment to clarify my position on the topic in general.

How to Set Environmental Targets That Matter?

Reg Coker

While I generally approach decision making with a slant towards the use of logic and hard numbers, my experience tells me that cold logic is not always the best path to follow. To get a brighter picture of an issue or the impact of one’s actions, one must also look at life from a different perspective - one which panders more towards sentimentality and emotion. My views below are by no means the be-all-and-end-all of how to approach target setting; I have simply drawn from my experience in big corporate finance, where trading floors operations are driven by numbers and algorithms, and from general life experience and observations in the changing environment. With that said, let’s look at how real estate organisations can use some of the principles that I have learned to set environmental targets that matter.

New Feature: Share your expertise and explain variances with data point annotations

The fight against climate change is a team sport. We need to come together and combine our expertise if we want to stand a chance of making a dent in global carbon emissions.

When it comes to running energy efficient buildings, this couldn’t be more true. There are many stakeholders involved, who bring knowledge and expertise from a wide variety of perspectives.

Energy data alone doesn’t cut it. It very often calls for the context that relies on more anecdotal or subjective information that has been built up over many years and sits in areas of the business other than the sustainability team. The problem is this information is stored in notepads, emails, ticketing systems or even worse, inside people's heads.

That’s why we’ve built Data Point Annotations.

Our brand new feature is embedded throughout the platform and allows all users to add information about particular anomalies, outliers, events, variances or anything else worth sharing.
