Property management software can create more sustainable buildings

80% of investors have incorporated ESG goals

More and more institutional investors are recognising the importance of having a long-term vision on sustainability. At least 80 per cent of these property investors have incorporated ESG goals (Environmental, social and corporate governance) into their strategies.

Smart software

Automation and smart software could help streamline this information exchange. For example, hello energy helps make the sustainability performance of your building portfolio more insightful by visualising the outcomes. With the benchmark feature, you can compare your buildings to the (inter)national industry standards or to similar buildings.
