Climate-compatible buildings that pay off financially.

Our software solution enables stakeholders in the building sector to easily measure, understand and optimize the climate impact of buildings to meet the 1.5°C climate target.

Buildings account for nearly 40% of global CO2 emissions

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global warming must be limited to 1.5°C to avoid the most devastating and irreversible impacts. With our current behavior, however, we only have 7 years until the Earth’s carbon budget is exhausted. So if we do not act immediately, we will soon reach climatic tipping points after which global warming will be practically unstoppable.

For more and more stakeholder in the building sector, the climate impact of their buildings is therefore becoming an important criterion. However, there is a wide range of options for action: from renovation measures on the building envelope to renewable heating systems such as ground-source heat pumps to photovoltaic systems. Depending on the building, different measures are suitable and profitable. In addition, market participants must constantly adapt to new regulations and subsidy schemes and grapple with a multitude of certifications and sustainability metrics.

Our software

Our software enables actors in the building sector to easily calculate and understand the climate impact and climate risks of buildings and optimize them for the 1.5°C climate target.

Analysis & classification

of individual buildings or entire portfolios according to their climate impact and climate risks. The climate impact of buildings is shown in an easy-to-understand degree number (ITR; Implied Temperature Rise). This shows how much the climate would warm if the entire world were to over- or undershoot the carbon budget for the 1.5°C climate target by the same amount.

1.5°C optimization

of buildings to become 1.5°C compliant in the cost-optimal way. Taking into account site-specific conditions (space constraints, availability of renewable energy, subsidies, legal requirements, etc.), climate-compatible and profitable renovation strategies are identified for each building.

Get your buildings on track for the 1.5°C climate target!

What others say about Scandens.

“Scandens’ ground-breaking project with its innovative solution is speeding up energy modernisation in the building sector, bringing us closer to the goal of a climate-compatible Switzerland.”

Corinne Grässle, Project Lead, Migros Pioneer Fund

“With Scandens, thanks to the real estate portfolio analysis, we can set (climate) targets and measure them in real time, as well as show our mortgage customers refurbishment and renovation options at the individual property level, taking into account the ecological, financial and tax implications. The fact that this also exactly covers the new self-regulation “Guidelines for mortgage providers on the promotion of energy efficiency” is another plus for us.”
