FEATURED CASE STUDIES

NAB logo
BESPOKE ALGORITHM TO MEASURE WORK-FROM-HOME EMISSIONS:

C&W has been supporting NAB since 2006 to quantify and report on their sustainability and carbon footprint. With the onset of COVID-19 and the prevalent work-from-home (WFH) arrangements, we saw a 30% drop in their reported emissions associated with their offices. In these unprecedented circumstances, C&W quickly developed a bespoke algorithm to help account for this gap and ensure accurate reporting of NAB’s sustainability footprint.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY PATHWAYS

C&W India team advised Adobe on the sustainability of its Indian operations across four facilities in Nodia and Bangalore. Adobe requested practical, affordable, and effective solutions on aspects such as energy efficiency, water conservation, waste management and mobility. That involved consulting on waste diversion, the addition of an electric vehicle (EV) fleet to transport staff (rather than diesel-fueled commuter transport) and the purchase of offsite solar power. Our engagement resulted in 100% of the waste now being segregated; 15% energy saving; up to 40% water saving and a successful conversion of their fleet to electric vehicles.

CARBON NEUTRAL ROADMAP FOR A HERITAGE LISTED PROPERTY

AXA Investment Managers approached C&W to assist them achieve carbon neutrality for their heritage-listed property in Australia. C&W developed a program which included developing a carbon account, identifying energy avoidance and efficiency initiatives, identifying opportunities for renewable energy generation and green power purchasing and offset advisory for the residual carbon emissions. Our efforts resulted in AXA IM’s property achieving Australian government-certificated carbon neutrality status.

ACHIEVING THE GREEN MARK AWARD

International Plaza (known as IP), is a 50-storey award-winning building in Singapore’s CBD. Built in the 1970’s, it needed to become more energy efficient and C&W was engaged to help it achieve Singapore’s Green Mark award. Beginning with an energy audit to understand usage, the chiller systems were replaced with higher-performance units. This resulted in energy cost savings and greater efficiency. The overall reduction in energy consumption reached 22% and the building received the BCA Green Mark GoldPlus Award.

A REVOLUTIONARY CERTIFICATION FOR A NEW GLOBAL TECH HUB

Mastercard struggled to achieve Green Star certification for the fit out of their new global tech hub in Sydney due to issues with the landlord-controlled base building systems. Our team came up with an original solution – develop and pioneer a Green Star rating tool, in collaboration with the Green Building Council to meet the new market needs of the rating scheme. The custom “Performance for Interiors”, ground-breaking new rating tool is tailored to assess both the fit-out design and operational performance of tenancies. Through application of this new rating tool, Mastercard was able to achieve the Green Star Certification, the first rating of its kind to be achieved in Australia.

The purpose of this program is to assist in maintaining the buildings high NABERS energy rating performance (of at least 5 Star) and satisfy a 2017-18 NSW Government Resource Efficiency Policy (GREP) requirement for a large NSW government tenant. Through the application of the building optimisation program, the building owner was able to satisfy a key NSW GREP requirement for its most important tenant. In 2019, the success of the ongoing program resulted in a 0.5 Star rating increase in NABERS energy performance (from 5 Star to 5.5 Star).
