EnOcean Alliance partners with German climate sustainability programme
The EnOcean Alliance is participating in the “50 Global Leaders” programme by TBD Media, in which leading business figures highlight their approaches to achieving climate change and sustainability goals. The companies are all members of the EnOcean Alliance, an open association of around four hundred companies in the building and IT industries. EnOcean devices require no cables, no battery to operate, so are very sustainable as well as flexible.
The campaign offers a platform for companies to provide sustainable and green solutions, and thus campaign against climate change.
Introducing the initiative, Graham Martin, CEO of EnOcean Alliance says: “Buildings use 40 percent of our entire energy and they are responsible for about 36 percent of our CO2 emissions. If we are going to meet the United Nations and other climate goals, it is absolutely necessary that we make our buildings energy efficient including retrofitting our entire existing buildings.”
The 50 Global Leaders campaign explores the mindsets and actions of business leaders across the world through a collection of dynamic and insightful interviews and documentaries. These videos will feature international executives, board members, and entrepreneurs, to discuss how their thinking is shaping the world of tomorrow. Their insights will help to inform the future of global business, the direction of international trade, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a globalised world.
Partners in the climate campaign include Microsoft’s IoT business lead at Azure BD, two vice presidents of T-Systems MMS company, the Product Marketing Director of Embedded & Wireless at Rutronik, and the CEO of Dussmann Service Deutschland.
Microsoft’s IoT business lead at Azure BD,Thomas Frahler explains, “Microsoft joined the EnOcean Alliance in 2019 with the goal to drive more standardisation in intelligent building control. With this partnership, Microsoft wants to help companies adopt digital technologies quickly and help them build their own digital competencies.”
An example of this is cited by Dussman’s CEO, Philipp Conrads, “The coronavirus pandemic has shown that there is a change in the way people are using offices and working. So, we have decided to implement a user-oriented cleaning concept, which ensures that not only personnel but also products are deployed and utilised more sustainably and in a more efficient way.”
