Building Energy Management Systems can be used for slashing emissions for healthcare organizations
Healthcare organizations looking at cutting their carbon footprint and also reducing their energy bills should consider deploying an advanced Building Energy Management System that can thoroughly monitor environmental factors and control them to a certain degree.
One organization that has actually managed to achieve a very high level of success in slashing their energy bills is global healthcare specialists Bupa,who reduced emissions by 23% by the end of last year compared to its 2009 baseline.
The group has installed 233 rooftop solar arrays in its buildings, generating green electricity alongside other energy-saving projects.
In the UK, 89 combined heat and power units and 101 solar units have been installed and its head office in London is powered solely by renewable energy.
Stuart Fletcher, CEO of Bupa said: “Reducing our carbon footprint is essential for us as a health and care company. The World Health Organisation estimates that air pollution causes seven million premature deaths globally. Every step Bupa takes towards reducing carbon emissions contributes to our purpose of longer, healthier, happier lives.”
