SURREY, British Columbia (PRWEB) July 09, 2019
CopperTree Analytics, the worldwide leader in building data and energy analytics software, was announced the winner of the Better Tomorrow 2025 Partner of the Year Award for Sustainable Facility Management by our partner Sodexo, one of the world’s largest food services and facilities management companies. The annual awards recognize and celebrate top vendor partners demonstrating exemplary dedication and accomplishments through their partnership.
CopperTree Analytics was selected based on their overall outstanding contributions and their alignment with Sodexo’s Six Dimensions of Quality of Life – physical environment, health and wellness, social interaction, recognition, ease and personal growth as the ultimate drivers of human performance – as well as Sodexo’s Better Tomorrow 2025 Corporate Responsibility Roadmap.
“At CopperTree, we work hard to ensure that our services make a sustainable impact for our clients and the planet at large by enabling facility teams to decrease their buildings’ energy expenditures by up to 25%,” said Keith La Rose, Director of Sales & Marketing at CopperTree Analytics. “According to the U.S. Green Buildings Council, buildings account for approximately 39% of the CO2 emissions and 70% of the electricity load in the United States alone each year. Because of this, our industry, and large facility management providers like Sodexo, have an opportunity to make a huge impact on the environment given the right tools and focus. It is wonderful to be working in partnership with Sodexo, who truly embody the spirit of sustainability as evidenced through their many programs focused on making the world a better, more livable place.”
“Sodexo’s Vendor Partner Award Program recognizes the contributions of companies like CopperTree Analytics whose efforts play a vital role to support Sodexo’s roadmap to sustainability,” said Eric Jouane, VP Facility Management Platform in North America. “Sodexo’s energy experts, building operators, sustainability leaders, and professional engineers offer a complete, integrated approach to energy conservation customized to meet the unique objectives of each client.”
“CopperTree’s Kaizen analytics software allows us to pinpoint areas within our clients’ facilities that are consuming more energy than necessary, (and as evidenced by a recent case study at Northwest Nazarene University) saving on average 20-23% of a building’s total energy consumption, which leads to a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions. By reducing one electrical unit at our clients’ facilities using Kaizen, we can reduce the need to produce three units on the electrical generation side. The software also features a powerful Energy Information System (EIS), which allows energy performance and savings to be calculated and communicated. This increases the focus on sustainability for us and our clients,” said Bill Kerr, Vice President of Energy Services at Sodexo.
