Why is it called COP26?

Linkedin Post November 21

The Paris Climate Conference is officially known as the 21st Conference of the Parties (or “COP”) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the United Nations body which is responsible for climate and based in Bonn, Germany.

So where do we start when it comes to marking our own changes and contributions to achieving NET ZERO?

Well, firstly we cannot afford to wait to act against the threat of climate change. We must work together to protect our planet and people and ensure a greener, more resilient future for us all, and the first port of call is energy reduction.

Energy Reduction

A good BEMS system is ‘free’ in the sense that it should save you more in energy than it costs to install and maintain.

On average, the systems Open Control offer cover approximately 87% of a building’s energy usage through the control of environmental conditions, lighting levels and small power. This provides building managers with unrivalled control of their energy consumption.

With automated energy monitoring and targeting (AM&T) software, we can help you to target your biggest energy using spaces, benchmark performance, set goals and achieve significant cuts in your energy consumption of up to 20%.


Our systems are so effective that they generally pay back within one to two years, providing an excellent Return on Investment (ROI) compared to other energy reduction options.

Our software packages can also provide the data you need to comply with government legislation such as the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS), as well as relate your energy savings to CO2 reductions on your carbon footprint.

Each one of us has a part to play. That’s why we are closely working with businesses across the UK as part of our determination on tackling climate change, and achieving NET ZERO!
