Be predictive, less reactive

Your assets and facilities are a good place to start turning sustainability strategy into action. By embedding AI into business processes and physical operations, you can use the data from your assets and real estate facilities to generate key insights. These insights can help you optimize waste management, reduce unplanned downtime and drive significant energy savings. Integration with an ESG system of record allows you to deliver financial-grade reporting on your operations’ environmental performance.

You can cut down waste and manage the environmental impact of your operations by extending the lifetime of your assets. AI-powered preventative maintenance acts as an early warning system, allowing you to identify and address faults early, reduce unplanned downtime and keep equipment running for longer.

Moving from cyclical to preventative maintenance means you only send out crews and vehicles when and where they are needed, reducing fuel consumption and optimizing workforce utilization.

Infusing preventative maintenance regimes with climate intelligence data, meanwhile, lets you predict when and where weather-based maintenance will be needed, reducing waste and managing environmental impact. Finally, a holistic asset management solution lets you plan and manage asset leases, purchases and disposal for minimum waste and environmental impact.

Drive energy savings New working patterns are having a profound impact on real estate utilization, leading organizations to take a new look at how their space can be managed more efficiently. It’s an ideal time to identify ways to reduce energy use and manage the overall carbon footprint of the portfolio. AI-driven facilities management solutions can sense and take action to reduce energy consumption, such as switching off lighting and heating in unused areas, or identifying when faulty equipment is consuming more energy than it should. Energy savings data can feed into corporate ESG reporting. IBM avoided 3,400 megawatt hours in 2021

alone by identifying energy conservation opportunities across the business.
