Will IoT replace humans in the cleaning industry?
Tuesday 19th March 14:30 - 15:00
UK businesses could save £23 billion per year by improving the way they use resources and interact with their business premises. Furthermore, the built environment accounts for around 33% of waste and 47% of UK greenhouse gas emissions, and what’s alarming is that 30-50% of energy in buildings is wasted. This presentation will focus on how IoT can help identify the hidden risks in buildings that humans can’t - in terms of energy, waste and resources - and help us turn building management problems into smart profits.
Savortex is an innovative UK-funded, multi-award winning IoT technology company. With over 400 projects deployed internationally to multinational companies such as CBRE, Wates and WeWork, its vision is to transform waste and resource into data and new revenue, serving a circular economy business model of the future.
