Envio Systems Joins Online Innovation Portal to Boost Transition to Net-Zero

Envio Systems, a breakthrough solution to digitally connect, monitor, and control commercial buildings from a single pane of glass, has been chosen as an innovation partner for a new self-service, interactive, and intelligent marketplace for sustainable technologies.

The Wates Innovation Network (WIN) portal is the first initiative of its kind. It has been created by the Wates Group, one of the UK’s leading family-owned construction, development, and property services companies, to help businesses ‘build back better’. The portal will connect companies directly and free of charge with partners that offer solutions to meet sustainability targets. It aims to create an industry-leading network that will accelerate the transition to net-zero by showcasing more innovative solutions to design, construct and maintain buildings.

Envio Systems has been providing its suite of innovative IoT products, enabling buildings to function as a fully integrated digital ecosystem since 2016. As an innovation partner, Envio Systems will feature on the WIN portal alongside 41 other suppliers approved by a screening panel, including 40 environmental experts. Users can filter sustainable innovations based on their requirements to find the product and supplier most suitable for them. 

The new online portal will enable Envio Systems to connect with businesses directly, and better support them in providing tangible environmental and operational savings. The Envio solution saves up to 70% of energy waste/consumption, generating an ROI in less than a year.

Alexander Hirsch, Director of Strategic Partnerships  at Envio Systems, said:

“Wates’ strong emphasis on their path to net zero emissions by 2030 perfectly aligns with our vision to positively impact the world through automated solutions. As an Innovation Partner, we will have the opportunity to showcase our industry-leading solutions on the WIN portal to help us accelerate our mission to make commercial buildings digitally connected and more sustainable.”

John Dunne, Group Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Director at Wates, commented:

“The market for sustainable solutions is expanding fast and companies who are not investing in innovations will soon be unable to compete. The issue is that 95% of market-ready sustainable technologies never get considered because key decision-makers do not know they exist, or suppliers don’t have access to the key corporate decision-makers. The WIN portal is bridging that gap, showcasing innovation and helping businesses to meet bold environmental targets.”
