Developing software solutions for managing energy and environmental performance in commercial real estate.

The Investment Opportunity

arbnco is a technology innovator operating in the field of real estate energy efficiency analysis and improvement modelling. The Company has developed proprietary software that facilitates in-depth analysis of property energy consumption, along with recommendations for improving energy efficiency for commercial real estate (‘CRE’) of all kinds. arbnco’s offerings ensures that its clients meet the regulatory energy efficiency requirements across a number of jurisdictions to bring them in line with legal prerequisites, whilst simultaneously helping landlords achieve maximum leasing yields. The solution is cost-effective and can plan retrofits of commercial space without the need to evict clients.

Governments around the world face mounting pressure to tackle global climate change and it is now a legal imperative to manage and mitigate this threat. De-carbonising the sector will be vital if statutory targets are to be met. The identification of energy saving retrofit measures of existing buildings has been perceived as the most viable and quickest solution to meet these vitally important targets. Active across multiple sectors, arbnco offers a suite of solutions for this global challenge. Its software enables CRE owners and asset managers to take positive steps towards improving the energy performance of their estate holdings, whilst maintaining a healthy and productive indoor environment.
