Achieve commercial and environmental sustainability across your building portfolio
The building sector is one of the largest contributors to climate change, accounting for 30-40% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Fortunately, with the help of building analytics technology, this sector has the biggest opportunity to quickly and cost-effectively cut carbon emissions and play a critical role in curbing climate change.
CIM powers resource-efficient and environmentally responsible buildings by providing data-driven insights to maximise operational efficiency and rapidly reduce energy consumption across building portfolios. Peak performing buildings with smaller carbon footprints achieve better sustainability ratings, meet their environmental, social and governance goals, and deliver long-term value to shareholders and tenants.

Harness PEAK building analytics to eliminate waste
Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems (HVAC) use more than 60% of a building’s total energy consumption and up to a third of that energy is often wasted due to HVAC malfunction, performance degradation and improperly tuned controls. When you consider that virtually all large buildings have HVAC operational issues, these statistics are hard to ignore.
CIM’s award-winning peak platform integrates building intelligence, machine learning and technical engineering to ensure that all of the energy you consume is used as wisely and efficiently as possible, with zero-waste and minimal impact on the environment.
The platform provides real-time accurate measures of your systems and equipment performance, including chiller and HVAC, enabling you to rapidly identify optimisation opportunities, repair technical or operational faults and implement logic controls to improve efficiency. Watch your energy and cost savings start to add up quickly as you streamline your maintenance practices and cut carbon emissions.
Improve environmental ratings
Improving carbon neutrality, including NABERS ratings, can increase the value of properties while making a positive impact on our environment.
As well as identifying easy ways to improve environmental ratings with little or no spend, our customers also use PEAK as a strategic CAPEX planning tool because it provides granular visibility to help identify and prioritise the best equipment or controls upgrade expenditure.
PEAK identifies the most energy-intensive equipment, verifies the impact to your carbon reduction targets by replacing it, and future proofs your investments in future energy strategies, including green energy sources. Using your building’s data to make smarter and more informed decisions ensures optimum building performance, increases system and equipment lifespan, and adds further value to your assets.
Achieve your environmental, social and governance (ESG) targets
Investor and tenant interest in sustainable buildings is increasing and leading asset owners are striving to improve their performance in this area. Energy efficiency and greenhouse gas emissions are often at the top of the list of ESG priorities, with pressures to report on building efficiency initiatives and track how assets are improving and performing against targets and competitors. PEAK makes it easy for ESG managers to track, measure and improve building sustainability.
