The basis of creating a sustainable office, is gathering insights. Analytics based on data helps to understand user behaviour and preferences. Important elements for making efficient and responsible choices for your sustainable office.
In the GoBright platform, you gather analytics based on booking data, occupancy rates, no-shows and more with 100% accuracy. This way you can reduce energy and extend equipment lifecycle. For example with GoBright Room Booking in combination with the Room Control and Room Sensors, equipment and lights are only used when the room is occupied for example.

All this data is influential in managing sustainability in the office which in its turn reduces expenses and decreases your carbon footprint.

Return on Investment for equipment for example. By regulating energy, lights, screens, AV equipment and air conditioning your equipment lasts longer ad require less replacement or maintenance.
Based on analytics you can manage the floorspace that is actually being used in the office. With this information you can make sustainable choices, by for example closing certain floors and lower the energy consumption. Or even moving to a smaller building if you need less floorspace in the long-term. Or removing desks and computer screens when the data shows they are not frequently used. This way you can save costs and repurpose them.
Sustainable office design does not always mean that less office space is required. It means that the office can be set up more efficient and effective, which is the most important element of responsible and sustainable thinking.
