Objective: to help customers to achieve their sustainability goals
Paris, France, 10th January 2023 8.45am – Bureau Veritas is delighted to announce the opening of a “Net Zero” centre of excellence to support customers in their efforts to reduce energy consumption, decarbonise their activities, and ensure the traceability of their declarations. This project is supported by Envision Digital technology. The centre will help organisations to achieve significant progress towards their “Net Zero” commitments, thanks to digitised, verifiable and certifiable processes. Thanks to its collaboration with Envision Digital, Bureau Veritas benefits from the expertise of a world leader in carbon footprint reduction and monitoring.
To help organisations reduce their carbon footprint and ensure the level of transparency that is required today, Envision Digital, technological leader in artificial intelligence and IOT (AIoT) for Net Zero targets and decarbonisation, and Bureau Veritas, world leader in testing, inspection and certification, are combining their expertise to develop an integrated service offer for energy management and carbon monitoring, hosted in a “Net Zero” centre of excellence.
This centre will propose solutions in three areas:
- Real time certification of carbon emissions to ensure credibility and facilitate extra-financial data reporting (CSRD, ESG, etc.)
- Attaining the energy and carbon goals defined while optimising costs (monitoring and optimisation of carbon emissions, results-based commitment on expected savings, etc.)
- Funding the investments required for carbon emission monitoring (supply of sensors, platform installation, energy-carbon management service) via the energy savings certificates scheme, for which Bureau Veritas is one of France’s leading experts via its Capital Energy subsidiary.
“This centre of excellence is being created in response to an increasingly demanding regulatory context and sharp rises in energy costs. The centre represents a fundamental innovation for our customers, because it will enable them to attain their “Net Zero” targets faster. It is further proof of Bureau Veritas’ commitment to helping its customers to be more efficient and credible in the implementation of sustainable solutions. As an independent third party, we will be proposing services & solutions for today’s energy and ecological challenges, assisted by Envision Digital, leader in its field,” explained Jacques POMMERAUD, EVP Africa, France & Government Services at Bureau Veritas.
“The EnOS* digital platform that we are making available to the Bureau Veritas teams is based on our AIoT technology, combining an IoT platform with advanced expertise in artificial intelligence for decarbonisation. In the current situation of strong energy and environmental tension, this solution enables evaluation and optimisation of customers’ energy consumption and carbon footprint, to accelerate the transition to a carbon-free economy. Thanks to the know-how of world leader Bureau Veritas, our customers will have access to the services of a shared carbon centre of excellence, encouraging an overall approach and dedicated to the implementation of practical, efficient and innovative solutions,” added Maher CHEBBO, Managing Director of EMEA at Envision Digital.
From one end of the chain to the other [see diagram below], Bureau Veritas and Envision Digital will be proposing a secure, modular, digital decarbonisation system to their customers, along with overall technical assistance; this model is already in place throughout the world.
The creation of this carbon centre of excellence represents a further milestone in the joint efforts made by the two companies since 2021, when their partnership was first announced.
