At the Honeywell event in Charlotte, USA, Asad Kamal, Chief Commercial Officer, Honeywell Building Technologies (HBT), said we help the building owners drive critical performance. It is done via sustainability, operational efficiency, occupant experience, safety and security, resilience, and compliance.
Commercial building owners and operators use our hardware, software and analytics to help create safe, efficient and productive facilities. Honeywell solutions and services are used in more than 10 million buildings worldwide.
Honeywell helps building owners drive critical business outcomes. These are across compliance, occupant experience, operational efficiency, resilience, sustainability, and safety and security. HBT is transforming the way every building operates to help improve the quality of life. Commercial building owners and operators use our solutions to help create sustainable, safe, healthy, efficient, and productive facilities.
There are three key outcomes — safety, sustainability, and comfort. Honeywell keeps people and buildings safe and sustainable. They make buildings smarter to help people and businesses solve problems. They empower users and occupants with controls, software, and data to drive critical outcomes.
Mega trends in buildings include the business of sustainability, new regulations and guidelines, cost of downtown is rising, and changing and increasing threats. Countries and companies are committing to sustainability goals and unprecedented funding. Multiple countries are increasing new cyber and ESG reporting guidelines. Every hour of downtime can cost money, with prolonged downtimes potentially carrying a steep cost for companies. We have improved the ability to detect and manage increase in physical security threats.
How do you more effectively manage the environmental impact of buildings? These involve metering and monitoring, IoT sensing and optimization, more effective heating and cooling, focus on building performance and controls, infrastructure upgrades, predictive maintenance, electrification, and use of renewables. Buildings are also becoming increasingly connected.
Potential benefits of more sustainable buildings include longer asset lifecycle, greater rental yield, greater net asset value, lower operational costs, and lower utility costs. We can support outcomes beyond sustainability, improving resilience, operational efficiency, compliance, and occupant experience.
91% of global knowledge workers are expected to be back in office, at on part-time basis, by end of 2023. 85 million jobs could go unfilled by 2030 as there aren’t enough skilled people to fill them. $10 billion was the increase to Americans due to cyber complaints in 2022.
Mega trends in sustainability include carbon impact on buildings, electrification of everything, unprecedented climate events, and new regulations and commitments. 37% of energy and process-related CO2 emissions globally were generated by buildings. We help customers meet sustainability goals. KPIs include optimizing energy use, reduce carbon emissions, lower utility bills, improve resiliency, etc.
Crafting foundations of better buildings
Sadiq Syed, VP and GM, Honeywell Connected Buildings, talked about crafting the foundations of better buildings. We can unlock data to drive better outcomes. Honeywell Forge for buildings delivers outcomes that matter. It is a unified approach to controlling building systems. We deliver outcomes to unlock building potential. There is outcome-based solution delivery with advanced domain expertise.
You need to look at asset data to optimize and achieve sustainability goals. We are enabling all that with Forge. Honeywell differentiators include the use of open protocols, autonomous control and operation, multi-asset coverage, global partner network, on-prem or cloud-based integration, and unified user experience. Globalworth has partnered with Honeywell to improve operations and differentiate their portfolio.
