1E, a leading provider of software and services which reduce organizations’ IT costs and environmental footprint, today announced that Bovis Lend Lease has successfully deployed the industry-leading NightWatchman PC power management software across an estate of 3,000 PCs in Europe. This deployment has enabled one of the world’s leading project management and construction companies to meet 32% of its energy reduction goals, the goal being to reduce the amount of energy used by of 278,500 kWh.
As part of a wider series of corporate sustainability goals set in November 2007, Bovis Lend Lease UK set about to reduce carbon emissions by 20% over a three year period. The challenge was to reduce the overall emissions from the office environment, where 2% of overall C02 emissions are generated; a statistic which led the company to develop a Green Office Guide in 2008 which looks at all areas of sustainability from reducing energy use, minimising waste, green procurement, sustainable business travel and transport to sustainable building management.
“We are always looking for innovations like NightWatchman from 1E that could bring our carbon base load to a lower level,” says Dr Paul Toyne, head of sustainability at Bovis Lend Lease. “The reduction in energy cost that we have seen from deploying NightWatchman onto just 3,000 of our desktops is a saving we expect to make year on year – and there’s potential for even more savings when we realise the impact from our global roll out of the solution out our entire PC estate.”
Sumir Karayi, CEO, 1E, says, “We are delighted to have been selected as a key sustainability partner by Bovis Lend Lease and are pleased to see that such significant energy and cost savings have been made in a short space of time. We value our relationship and look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”
