Article

by Cynthia Curtis, Senior VP of sustainability stakeholder engagement at JLL

Striving for something better is a very human thing. Whether it be a better house, better clothes, a better job, it’s our nature to seek a future, which is an improvement upon the current state.

Building a Better, Decarbonized World Means Raising Standards for All Buildings, New and Old

By Philippe Delorme, Executive Vice-President, Energy Management, Schneider Electric
Article

Energy waste is happening all around us, and it’s contributing to climate change. Yet fighting this invisible foe is near impossible – unless we make the invisible visible. Digital innovation, combined with a shift to more electrification, holds the key to tackling climate change, unlocking the ability to see and measure our impact, so we can recognise and reduce it.

Ironically, digital adoption is also one of the biggest barriers to action. Confusion around what to invest in has caused many to delay decisions and wait for a ‘miracle cure’. This paralysis is part of the problem.
