Carbon neutral road maps and concept development
The real estate and construction sector need responsible actors who set tangible carbon emission reduction targets.
With Zero, a clear roadmap for achieving carbon-neutral performance can be created. The Carbon Neutrality Roadmap includes a definition of the current state of emissions according to the GHG Protocol or other industry frameworks and provides concrete proposals for action to improve performance. Zero makes it easy to produce a variety of scenario views and serves as a tool for stakeholder communication.
Whether or not your organization has a carbon neutrality goal, the Zero service is also your tool for managing other goals, such as those related to energy use. Zero also brings added value and helps the implementation of existing roadmaps.
With Zero, you can develop your concept solutions, whether they are construction type solutions or technical concept products with which you want to promote the emission efficiency of your operations.
Case-example: Energy wise retail shop concept
With the Zero service process over 64 000 technical solutions were analysed to determine the best solution which supports the ambitious carbon neutrality goals.
The studied aspects were:
- Life cycle carbon footprint
- Life cycle costs
- Energy performance
We found many possible solutions, for example:
- Same investment cost
- 35% lower life cycle costs
- 35% lower life cycle emissions
- 25% lower investment costs
- 13% lower life cycle costs
- A positive environmental effect is achieved (The carbon sinks are bigger than carbon emissions)
