Sustainability & Energy Management

  • Manhattan IWMS - Sustainability

      OVERVIEW

      Manhattan is leading more sustainable real estate practices by extending its industry-leading IWMS in a more advanced direction with Manhattan’s Green Real Estate and Asset Technology (GREAT) initiative. The GREAT approach is based on the belief that sustainability is not only a separate category of IWMS applications, but an underlying functionality that runs through the entire lifecycle of the built environment – just as financial planning and management runs through the entire suite of Manhattan products. Manhattan’s functionality for sustainable building operations includes:

      Eccounting
      • Manhattan is the repository for all sustainable-related data for buildings and land in the real estate portfolio database. Relevant data can be extracted from in-house and external service delivery organizations and combined with information collected within the Manhattan database. This includes data on all building related activities, including leasing (e.g., green leases), facility management, utilities, operations and capital projects.
      Energy Management
      • Users can monitor meter recordings and statistics as well as generate a cost comparison analysis using the Manhattan Energy Management module. Readings can be imported through an interface with third party energy systems and be displayed on a Manhattan Dashboard with other key performance indicators (KPIs). The energy management module automates the load and validation of billing data in standard formats.
      Carbon Footprint Reporting
      • Manhattan has been used to extend KPI analyses to create unique dashboards to demonstrate a company’s carbon footprint performance (CFP) against industry and government benchmarks. The system provides an automated CFP calculator that takes into account the carbon off-set at the building level.

      OVERVIEW
