Assura plc choose arbnco to deliver on Net Zero commitments


London, England (November 21, 2022) – arbnco Ltd., a leading SaaS company based in the United Kingdom and United States, today announced that the U.K.’s top healthcare REIT Assura plc has adopted its energy software platform.  By harnessing the power of arbnco’s next-generation building analytics software, Assura will gain deep insights into how its buildings operate relative to best-in-class energy efficiency standards, and it will realize the most direct path to reducing carbon emissions, shrinking energy costs and enhancing asset value across its entire commercial building portfolio.

Commercial buildings represent one of the largest sources of carbon emissions worldwide, and arbnco has remained laser-focused on improving building performance by working with major utilities and commercial real estate clients to drive energy efficiencies and reduce carbon footprints.  The company’s proprietary building analytics software was developed by a global team of building engineers and industry experts using state-of-the-art technologies to help commercial building managers understand, improve and monitor the energy usage of building portfolios of any size.  arbnco’s flagship product, arbn Insight, allows a portfolio manager to quickly assess the energy usage of thousands of buildings in a portfolio, and provides costed recommendations for improvement.  The company’s second product, arbn Consult, enables a deep-dive analysis of buildings that are prioritized for immediate attention to determine specific behavioral, retrofit, renewable and beneficial electrification actions to be taken to maximize environmental and commercial outcomes.

Simon West, Cofounder and Chief Operating Officer of arbnco stated, “We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Assura, which plays such a critical role in supporting the UK’s healthcare industry.  It is further evidence that arbnco’s software has quickly become the platform of choice for REITs across the UK.  Our proprietary and highly scalable software delivers a unique solution that gives large property portfolios deep insights into energy, cost and carbon savings, while enabling legislative compliance and a path to Net Zero.’’

“We’ve established enormously challenging energy and carbon targets for our company and we know we need to embrace leading-edge technology partners.  After a competitive and thorough survey of the market, we are delighted to be working with arbnco and to have the opportunity to leverage the power of their software as we strive to reduce the carbon emissions for our entire portfolio.”
