The Globe Tower has become the first building in the Philippines to have 24/7 real-time environmental and coronavirus risk monitoring and management on almost every floor, thanks to a partnership between digital solutions platform Globe and uHoo, a Philippine climate-tech scale-up that developed the world’s most comprehensive indoor environmental monitoring and management system for homes and commercial facilities. Both are collaborating on strategies aimed at promoting well-being, decreasing carbon emissions, and improving ESG performance. Globe is able to monitor the 13 environmental parameters listed below plus the uHoo Virus Index. Temperature, Humidity, Various types of airborne chemicals (VOCs, Carbon Monoxide, and
Formaldehyde), Luminosity, Sound. They may use their PCs or the uHoo app on their phones to access this information.
How uHoo contributes to Globe’s Climate Action
Agenda Office buildings use a great deal of power, thus they’re one of the greatest sources of greenhouse gas emissions. The Globe team can detect which portions of the building are over-cooled, overlit, and have suboptimal conditions using data from the uHoo dashboard, allowing them to make appropriate modifications that result in improved energy consumption and a more comfortable office atmosphere. The implementation of this technology allows for smarter building management, which results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions and a smaller carbon footprint, making the overall building operation future-proof, sustainable, and climate-resilient.
