Think energy: See problems
With the global focus on climate change, businesses are under pressure to demonstrate that they are doing what they
can to reduce their carbon emissions. In 2019, the Government introduced a target of “at least a 100% reduction in the
net UK carbon account (i.e., reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, compared to 1990 levels) by 2050.”
Every business has a carbon footprint. Many don’t know where it is, where it comes from, how to measure it, and
what they can do about it.
When businesses think energy, they have begun to think ‘problem’. They understand that the problem comes at
them from two directions:
Essential reporting covers emissions under three
‘scopes’; they are also integral to reporting under
Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR).
Scope 1: All direct emissions from the activities of an
organisation or under its control.
Scope 2: Indirect emissions from electricity purchased
and used by the organisation.
Scope 3: All other indirect emissions from activities of the organisation coming from sources that they do not own or control.*
* These emissions are usually the greatest share of the carbon footprint;
associated with business travel, procurement, waste and water.
Customers are increasingly critical of organisations that
hold sustainability issues as anything less than a prime
commitment, an integral part of their culture, and
a governing principle in how they operate; from the
factory to the office and through the supply chain.
Lack of confidence translates into loss of customers. It’s not just on the sales side that impacts can hit either. Shareholders and external business partners seek confirmation that whatever a business can do to reduce its carbon emissions, it is doing
Unprecedented opportunity, says Mark Carney:
“Addressing climate change is an amazing commercial opportunity. It is about turning an existential risk into the greatest opportunity in our time. The opportunity is unprecedented.”
In his role as COP 26 Finance Adviser and UN Special Envoy, Mark Carney, has also stated: “Markets require
information to operate effectively – what gets measured gets managed. This requires an improvement in the
quantity, quality and comparability of reporting, which, as the IASB has made clear, should be included in the
core financial reports issued by companies.”
MANAGING CARBON FOOTPRINTS: ENERGY BROKERS TO THE RESCUE
‘What gets measured gets managed’
AyMa IoT enables you to support your clients in meeting the challenge of carbon footprint reduction. Through IoT
connected sensors, our cloud-based data-driven carbon management solution, IPSUM, delivers real-time visibility
of the energy usage status and optimum attainable levels of their energy usage across all their operations.
Help your clients pinpoint their carbon emission action points
The answer is in their data. Deliver a service that makes that data easily accessible, visible, and actionable.
Data capture at point of use:
Data is captured in real-time at any energy usage point – electricity sockets, water sources, HVAC systems, transportation and travel, home-based workforce, supply chain, to name a few. AyMa IoT can advise on optimum positioning/ locations. Data capture is performed by small sensors, connected to the Internet of Things (IoT).
Data transmission to the cloud:
Sensors send the data to AyMa IoT’s IPSUM cloud-based carbon management solution for aggregation in accordance with parameters you can specify and analyse for reporting; by room, building, ﬂoor, vehicle or ﬂeet, location etc.
Data insights delivered to management dashboard tool:
The reports are accessible via IPSUM’s graphic-rich, intuitively displayed dashboard; accessible from any connected device. The easily accessible management dashboard tool informs decisions about the actions you wish to take in line with your carbon footprint reduction obligations, and your own sustainability strategy.
Expand your energy services
We help energy brokers to drive client and shareholder value through our wholesale, automated carbon footprint reporting solution, IPSUM. IPSUM automates data collection across 5 data classes: Electricity, Gas, Water, Environmental and Transportation.
This provides a holistic view of an organisation’s carbon footprint and what their main contributors are across Scope 1, 2 and elements of Scope 3.
You’ll enable your clients to make informed sustainability decisions based on real-time, accurate data. AyMa IoT work with an exclusive network of partners who gain circa 20% recurring revenue margins from their clients on 3- and 5-year contracts. The annuity-based contracts have significantly reduced churn and helped attract new clients from other brokers who are not driving a sustainability agenda.
